21 Jump Street sequel approved

By Alexandra Heilbron on March 2, 2012 | 8 Comments

Jonah Hill is feeling pretty confident about his latest flick, 21 Jump Street. Hill revealed to E!Online that there will be a sequel coming soon. “We got [the green light] by the studio to start writing the sequel,” he told the entertainment website, referring to Michael Bacall, his co-writer, and himself. He then went on to praise the upcoming cop movie. “It’s punk rock. It’s total mayhem. It’s two young-looking cops going back to high school and they party with high school kids and go crazy,” Hill said. “I’d say it’s the funniest movie I’ve ever been in — that and Superbad. It’s like a two-hour or hour-and-a-half party.” 21 Jump Street co-stars Channing Tatum and opens in theaters March 16th. ~Rodrigo Cokting

    Trailer looks funny but definitely not a original storyline. Wasn’t there a similar movie a few years ago a female reportre who goes back to high school? It might ahve been with Drew Barrymore maybe? Why can people come up with better storylines instead of ripping off old movies and hoping no one will notice

    You’re right Drew Barrymore starred in Never Been Kissed and it was released in 1999.

    You see Hollywood is afraid to break from what’s working for them. They make these cause they know people like the stories in the past and say hey let’s just do a remake. This film is a remake from another like 20 years or so ago and that film was adapted from the tv show with the same name and I’m sure the tv show adapted it from somewhere else. But an original idea, now that would be a nice switch but Hollywood produces, these days, about 95% of their films from what they did in the past, some of different names, same names, adaptations from books,etc. They still only actually release 1/3 of the films that the Independent Studios produce who have a better ratio of 30-40% or so in original ideas and the rest playing off already made artwork.Something in Hollywood is not adding up people.

    The orignal TV Show at least had some moral merit… this just looks silly in comparison….I’m sure Johnny, Dustin and Peter are totally embarassed by their follow-up.

    To everyone who thinks that this is not original you are kinda right. But this movie is based on the tv show of the same name. the show took young cops and put them undercover in different situation. It starred a young Johnny Depp and Holly Robinson-Peete

    is serious, plenty of action & not for laughs. Cocky
