After attending Kimberly Snyder’s book release party next week with Jenna, Channing Tatum will head to New Orleans to prep for his comedy ‘21 Jump Street‘, which will begin filming on April 25th. Chan will both star in and executive produce the film with funny man Jonah Hill.
Previously, it’s been reported that Ice Cube was in negotiations to join the Sony Pictures film and that Brie Larson (who’s best known for playing Toni Collette’s rebellious daughter in the Showtime series “United States of Tara”) was added to the cast in the lead female role of Molly. Reportedly, her character may be Jonah’s love interest in the film.
“Rob Riggle is in negotiations to play the main villain in Columbia Pictures’ action comedy “21 Jump St.” Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill star as undercover cops assigned to work in schools. Ice Cube is set to play the police chief, while Brie Larson will play the female lead. Phil Lord and Chris Miller are directing from their own screenplay. Neal Moritz is producing, while Tatum and Hill will exec produce the pic, which is based on the Fox series that ran from 1987 to 1991 and helped launched Johnny Depp’s career. Series co-creator and exec producer Stephen J. Cannell will receive a posthumous credit on the pic, which is scheduled to start production later this month.”
I can neither confirm or deny casting rumors, BUT I can confirm an extras casting call for the film…
They are specifically looking for police officer types (real police/military background preferred), and high school students (18 years old or older to look younger) who have prom attire.
They strongly encourage everyone of all ages, genders, and ethnicities to register with their agency for an opportunity to be cast as an extra in the film. If you’re interested, you can CLICK HERE to register.
Chan has said that ‘21 Jump Street‘…
“will be the most insane ride that you will ever go on. It’s the most ridiculous script I’ve ever read in my entire life. I’ve read a lot of insane scripts and this one takes the cake. The stuff that we’re going to get to do — you’re just gonna be like, ‘I can’t believe that they’re getting to do this.’”
Based on that description, there’s no question that ‘21 Jump Street‘ is going to be an exciting set!! Good luck to everyone who’s planning on attending the castings!
