Sony Pictures confirmed during its CinemaCon presentation earlier today that 21 Jump Street 2 will hit theaters in 2014.

Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum will reprise their 21 Jump Street roles as Schmidt and Jenko, two rookie cops who join an undercover program that sends them back to high school. 21 Jump Street earned over $200 million worldwide last year, making it one of the biggest comedy hits of the year.

We reported in January that Dave Franco will likely return as Eric Molson, although his involvement has not been confirmed at this point.

Last February, a month before the original 21 Jump Street hit theaters, Jonah Hill confirmed that he is working on the screenplay with co-writer Michael Bacall. Production will likely begin sometime later this year.

21 Jump Street directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller have not been confirmed to return at this time. They are currently working on The Lego Movie, but there may be room in their schedule to return.

22 Jump Street was released June 13th, 2014 and stars Jonah Hill, Channing Tatum, Peter Stormare, Wyatt Russell, Amber Stevens, Jillian Bell, Ice Cube, The Lucas Brothers. The film is directed by Phil Lord, Chris Miller.

    21 Jump Street was one of the few movies I enjoyed last year, I don't know if they need a sequel as it seems fine as a stand alone film. Hopefully this new one isn't rushed.

    Accepted the first one for what it is so I don't have a problem at all with making another. Guess they'll be in college this time around.

    @thedude1 I thought so as well, they shat on an excellent TV series and made it look like a pile of dirty clothes. It's one of the reasons I don't like Jonah.
