The highly anticipated sequel to Sony’s hit comedy ‘21 Jump Street‘ starring Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill has officially started filming! Co-produced by Chan and his 33 and Out production company, ‘22 Jump Street‘ will pick up after the events of the first film’s take down of a High School drug ring, and buddy cops “Jenko” and “Schmidt” will go deep undercover at a local college.
Ice Cube (aka Captain Dickson) is reprising his role as their superior, Neal H. Moritz is returning to produce, and ‘21‘ directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller are also back to helm the comedy. In anticipation of beginning the new installment, Chan and Jonah issued the following humorous joint statement:
We are grateful to our friends at Sony and MGM for letting us do another one. We’re proud to be working alongside Phil, Chris, Neal, Ice Cube, Korean Jesus and the rest of our amazing crew and cast. As we all know, sequels are ALWAYS better than the original. Every single time. This will be no exception. How are we still saying the exact same words at the same time? This is crazy! Jump Street!
