One of the bigger surprises of 2012 had to be 21 Jump Street. Here was a remake that wasn’t only faithful to the original source material, but in many ways, an improvement as well. Jonah Hill was a natural as always, but Channing Tatum stole the show with an otherwise unknown talent for comedy.
After making over $200 million at the global box, Sony naturally wanted to get a sequel out as soon as possible. And it looks like officers Jenko and Schmidt will be graduating to a new crime-filled campus.
After making their way through high school (twice), big changes are in store for officers Schmidt (Jonah Hill) and Jenko (Channing Tatum) when they go deep undercover at a local college. But when Jenko meets a kindred spirit on the football team, and Schmidt infiltrates the bohemian art major scene, they begin to question their partnership. Now they don’t have to just crack the case – they have to figure out if they can have a mature relationship. If these two overgrown adolescents can grow from freshmen into real men, college might be the best thing that ever happened to them.
22 Jump Street enrols into cinemas next year June, and stars onah Hill, Channing Tatum, Ice Cube, Amber Stevens and Craig Roberts. Phil Lord and Chris Miller direct.
