With a Golden Globe nomination in their pocket for Best Animated Film, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller are currently in negotiations to make their live-action feature debut with an adaptation of the 1980s TV show 21 Jump Street.  As Heat Vision describes the show in their report, “The show followed young-looking cops working undercover in high school.”  Jonah Hill is starring and executive producing with Scott Pilgrim vs. the World co-writer Michael Bacall handling the script.

Lord and Miller also wrote Cloudy, which grossed $122.6 million domestically and earned most positive reviews.  The pair’s credits also include writing for How I Met Your Mother and creating the animated cult comedy show Clone High for MTV.
