Sony Pictures has announced via it’s Twitter feed that director Phil Lord and Chris Miller’s 21 Jump Street movie starring Jonah Hill will be getting released in August, 2011.  While Hill has been talking about the film for almost two years, this is one of those projects I thought was stuck in development hell.  Apparently not.  Hit the jump for what we know about the movie:

In case you think the 21 Jump Street movie will play it safe and be PG or a soft PG-13, Hill promises a “full-on action movie, blowing s*** up.”  He also says:

“[Audiences are] not expecting what it’s going to be. It’s not a parody of the show. I’m not playing Johnny Depp’s character… I’m not saying I’m Johnny Depp. I’m not playing his character. It’s a group of people that go back to high school to deal with a drug problem. To deal with crime in high school. I really love the “Back to the Future” moment of that where it’s getting to relive a certain period of your life… It’s a comedy with really cool action. We’re not doing something serious like ‘Miami Vice.’ But it’s not a parody. It’s a funny movie with a lot of great action and a real story. I’ve been saying that it’s like a John Hughes movie with ‘Bad Boys’ style action.”

After the awesome trailer for Get Him to the Greek, I’m in for whatever Hill wants to do. If you’d like to read more of what Hill has said about 21 Jump Street, hit these two links.

    CHRIS MILLER AND PHIL LORD ARE GENIUSES! I will see this twice, opening day.

    He's not playing Johnny Depp. He's just playing a fat, ugly, bearded, version of
    Johnny Depp.
    Why they selected this guy for the role is just baffling…and I don't use the word
    “baffling” often….I use it so little, I'm not sure I spelled it right.

    • yourmom

      ummm I don’t know… maybe cause IT’S A COMEDEY!! And he’s HILLARIOUS!!

      • bob

      You people clearly do not keep up with the times Jonah Hill lost over 60 pounds to do this movie if any of you bloody retards actually google image him you’ll be shocked and surprised to see he is a very handsome guy. His weight loss has suited him tremendously I am baffled and I don’t use “Baffled” very often that you idiots are so damned closed minded to rag on someone over their appearance. Hello!!!! Tom Hanks lost 50 pounds to do Philadelphia. Rene Zelwegger gained 30 Pounds to play Bridget Jones. I m mean its called dieting people. I actually am an 80′s baby and I remember the show from back then I didn’t need to watch it now like all of you newbies

    I agree, Stephen Cannell ought to be ashamed to have his creation handed over to this fat dunce. If you make the movie, make a gritty, serious, R-rated Miami Vice adaptation. Hire four young actors-black, white, asian, hispanic and use the old Jumpstreet chapel. Make a violent updated 2010 version. Not a comedy, Hill but a movie dealing with real-life 21st century high school issues like, gangs, homosexuality, racism, crimes w/today's technology, i.e, sexting. I was a huge fan(saw every episode in first run airing) and Hill just doesn't get it.

      I feel the same way you do because this movie would probably at least benifet with our kids today because let’s face it they are more crimes doing in the school system then the school boards want to hear.

    FUCKK! IF THIS MOVIE IS A HIT! ILL GO OFF! FIRST OF ALL, i just got done with the first season of 21jumpstreet. MAY I JUST SAY I LOVED IT! the only part i dident like was it was a little to long, but i needed to be that in-depth. but anyways, it was good and for these idiots to not only mess with a good thing, they revamp it to a degree that SUCKS. it wasn’t suppose to be a comedy, atleast not with a fatty “Jonah hill”. now thats just rude. im sorry, but i will never see it, im boycotting it.
