A new behind-the-scenes featurette has arrived online for the big screen adaptation of 21 Jump Street. Phil Lord and Chris Miller (Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs) directed this film that stars Jonah Hill, Channing Tatum, Brie Larson, Dave Franco, and Ice Cube, with a cameo by Johnny Depp.
I think that this action-comedy looks pretty decent, and I plan on seeing it in theaters. Tatum and Hill seem to have good chemistry together. It will be interesting to see how Depp's cameo plays out. I also like the idea of Nick Offerman (Parks and Recreation) having a small role.
In the action-comedy 21 Jump Street, Schmidt (Jonah Hill) and Jenko (Channing Tatum) are more than ready to leave their adolescent problems behind. Joining the police force and the secret Jump Street unit, they use their youthful appearances to go undercover in a local high school. As they trade in their guns and badges for backpacks, Schmidt and Jenko risk their lives to investigate a violent and dangerous drug ring. But they find that high school is nothing like they left it just a few years earlier – and neither expects that they will have to confront the terror and anxiety of being a teenager again and all the issues they thought they had left behind.
21 Jump Street arrives in theaters on March 16th, 2012. Watch the featurette below and share your thoughts.
