rookies, and poor ones at that,
infiltrate high school.
Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum star in this big screen remake of the late 80′s TV series 21 Jump Street. While the TV series went for a more traditional police procedural drama, the movie decides to take a comedic turn, going the same route as the big screen Dragnet remake from the 80′s.
The trailer shows Hill and Tatum bumbling their way through the police academy, and getting recruited for an undercover gig to investigate a high school drug ring. It won’t be the first movie to have cops going undercover in highschool, but we’ll have to wait until March 16, 2012 to see if they can freshen up the genre.
Along with Hill and Tatum, 21 Jump Street also stars Brie Larson, Ice Cube, Ellie Kemper, Rob Riggle, and Dave Franco. Johnny Depp also appears. Jonah Hill shares writting credit with Michael Bacall. Phil Lord and Chris Miller (Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs) directs.
