'22 Jump Street' Begins Production with Channing Tatum & Jonah Hill
With a release date set for June 13th, 2014, production on the action comedy sequel 22 Jump Street began today, and Sony Pictures made the official announcement without revealing anymore cast members besides Channing Tatum, Jonah Hill and Ice Cube reprising their roles. The press release doesn't offer much in the vein of plot details either saying, "In the action-comedy 22 Jump Street, after making their way through high school (twice), big changes are in store for officers Schmidt (Jonah Hill) and Jenko (Channing Tatum) when they go deep undercover at a local college. But we do have some cool photos from the set. Look now!
Co-director Chris Miller tweeted "Day 1 of shooting," and posted this picture:
Meanwhile, Channing Tatum took to Instagram with some photos of his own:
22 Jump Street is directed by Phil Lord & Chris Miller (21 Jump Street, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, The LEGO Movie) and written by Michael Bacall (21 Jump Street, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World) and Oren Uziel (Kitchen Sink). This time Schmidt (Jonah Hill) and Jenko (Channing Tatum) find themselves undercover at a local college, but no details on the case have been revealed. Ice Cube also returns as the undercover unit's captain, and Sony Pictures releases the sequel on June 13th 2014 next summer. Cool?
