The newest issue of EW is hitting newsstands tomorrow and with it, readers will get their first look at Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum in 21 Jump Street. The picture, which you can see above, doesn’t really show a whole lot except for the fact that it looks like Hill has lost a bit of weight since we last saw him in Get Him To The Greek.
Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller are going to be helming this update on the classic ’80s TV show. Hill and Tatum will play two undercover cops who are assigned to work in high schools and colleges.
“It’s essentially a story about guys who didn’t get it right the first time going back to school,” says Hill. It’s almost like a time-travel movie where they have the answers that they didn’t know then. Like Back to the Future Part II: They go back, but now they have the almanac.”
Rob Riggle, Ice Cube and Brie Larson will also have roles and of course, the film will feature a cameo by Johnny Depp. Look for it in theatres next March.
