I recently posted an on set fan encounter with Chan and his co-star and fellow executive producer Jonah Hill that gave us a first glimpse at the two actors in uniform in the cop comedy, but thanks to Entertainment Weekly, fans will get an official first look at the dynamic duo at work on ‘21 Jump Street‘ in their issue that hits a newsstand near you TOMORROW.
In the meantime, you can check out new pics that were taken today by fan Renee Hrapmann when she and her mom ran into Chan on Magazine Street in New Orleans. Renee tweeted that the fan-friendly actor “made me and my mom’s day“…
In addition to executive producing ‘21 Jump Street‘ , Chan and Jonah will star as two undercover cops, Jenko and Schmidt, who are assigned to work inside high schools and colleges. The cast also includes Ice Cube, Rob Riggle, DeRay Davis, Brie Larson, Dave Franco, and Johnny Depp, who recently filmed a cameo for the movie. The film is an update on the classic ’80s TV show that jump started (pun intended) Depp’s career.
‘21 Jump Street‘ is directed by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller from a screenplay by Michael Bacall and is based on a treatment from Hill and Bacall. Neal H. Moritz will produce the film with Stephen J. Cannell, who will receive posthumous credit.
The production will be filming in NOLA through the end of June, and ‘21 Jump Street‘ will hit a theater near you on March 16, 2012.
Fans can check out the latest set photos in the CTU Photo Gallery, and make sure you pickup a copy of this week’s Entertainment Weekly to check out their sneak peek!
