Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill are teaming up again for the highly anticipated sequel to the hit film, 21 Jump Street.
In 22 Jump Street, the two actors will reprise their roles as detectives posing as students, but this time instead of high school, they work undercover at a local college. As the detectives try to crack a case, college life takes a toll on their relationship.
Schmidt (Hill) gets involved with the school’s art scene, and Jenko (Tatum) strikes up a friendship with a football player who turns out to be a kindred spirit. As immature as any of the real students, Schmidt and Jenko allow the changes in their lives to come between them, and the guys start to question their partnership.
Other original cast members returning for the sequel include Ice Cube as Captain Dickson and Dave Franco (Now You See Me) as Eric Molson. The film also features Amber Stevens (The Amazing Spider-Man), Peter Stormare (Pain & Gain) and Wyatt Russell (Cowboys & Aliens).
This action comedy has two directors: Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, who recently teamed up on The Lego Movie. As with the first picture, which was based on the TV series, Michael Bacall wrote the screenplay from the story he wrote with Jonah Hill. Collaborating with Bacall on this project were Rodney Rothman (Grudge Match) and Oren Uziel, whose writing credits include the video game Mortal Kombat: Rebirth.
22 Jump Street blows into theaters nationwide on June 13.
