Shocking! Sequel To “21 Jump Street” Is Already In The Works

Shocking! Sequel To "21 Jump Street" Is Already In The Works

No surprise I guess…

Sony Pictures is reportedly developing a sequel to the film that opened this weekend – and is opening strong apparently – with Jonah Hill and Michael Bacall who collaborated on the story for the first film.

Negotiations are ongoing, but Hill and co-star Channing Tatum are expected to return, not only in front of the camera, but also as exec producers.

I suppose Ice Cube will return as well. It's a paycheck, and probably a decent-sized one too.

I reviewed the film a couple of days ago; in short, I didn't care for it; it's not for me, but based on the estimated $30 million opening weekend, others love it.
