21 Jump Street gains directors?

From CGI to cop drama...


Writer/producer/starrer Jonah Hill has already admitted that “the Internet thinks it's the worst idea ever!" of his recently-penned cinematic reimagining of ‘80s cop show 21 Jump Street.

But two guys who could be on his side are Phil Lord and Chris Miller, co-directors of this year’s CG belly-rumbler Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs.

The pair are reportedly in talks to direct Hill in the film, which looks set to update the original show’s central conceit, in which fresh-faced cops infiltrate high schools by going undercover as teenagers.

We’re imagining Superbad meets The Wire, but that’s probably just us.

Johnny Depp starred in the ‘80s TV series, though there’s no word yet if the still-fresh-faced pirate will be making an appearance in this new post-millennial outing. Fingers crossed.

Ever heard of Jump Street? Tell us what you want from the film...

      Superbad meets The Wire sounds pretty cool actually. Jonah has set himself up for some very unfavourable comparisons though!!
