Watch the Official Trailer for the New ’21 Jump Street’ Movie
Finally, a potential travesty of justice has been thwarted as Columbia Pictures will bring the ’80’s cop drama 21 Jump Street to the big screen. Anyone who was a teenager in the late ’80’s – early ’90’s will remember 21 Jump Street. The show was a staple during the early days of the Fox Network and centered around a group of younger-looking undercover officers (including a young Johnny Depp) who specialized in youth crime.
By the looks of the official trailer below, the updated version, starring Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill, seems to be set up as more of a cop-buddy comedy with Tatum and Hill finding themselves assigned to Jump Street after running into a bit of trouble with how they executed their first bust as partners on the force.
The film also features Ice Cube, Parks & Recreation’s Nick Offerman, as well as stand-up comedian and former Daily Show correspondant Rob Riggle. It should be noted that although he doesn’t appear in the trailer, IMDB.com lists the aforementioned Johnny Depp as a cast member which leads me to believe the actor makes some type of cameo in the film. On the flip-side, another original cast member, Holly Robinson-Peete does appear briefly in the trailer, but is not listed as a cast member on IMDB.
21 Jump Street is scheduled for a March 2012 release.
