Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum star in the remake of the 1987 TV show which catapulted Johnny Depp’s career. Apparently Hill wrote a cameo specifically for Depp in this movie which should please fans of the original series.
Buddy cop movies can go either way, there’s the excellent Lethal Weapon and Bad Boys or there is terrible White Chicks.
Thankfully 21 Jump Street does actually look funny, which is probably down to the fact that Hill wrote the script and he’s not one to shy away from crude (Superbad).
Tatum who usually plays the love interest in chick flicks or dramas looks the perfect foil for Jonah Hill who has been nominated for the Best Supporting Actor Oscar for his role in Moneyball.
21 Jump Street is released March 16th in the UK/USA and a day earlier in Australia, take a look at the red band trailer below.
