Sony Pictures confirmed during its CinemaCon presentation earlier today that 21 Jump Street 2 will hit theaters in 2014.
21 Jump Street 2 confirmed for 2014 release
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 comes to theaters June 13th, 2014 and stars Channing Tatum, Jonah Hill, Dave Franco, Nick Offerman, Peter Stormare, Ice Cube, Ashlyn McEvers, Richard Grieco. The film is directed by Phil Lord, Chris Miller.
