“Partners for life.”
The surprising success of the 2012 film “21 Jump Street” has lead to a relocation across the road: “22 Jump Street.”
Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill are back, still looking “old as —-,” this time taking their game to college – complete with parties, co-ed bathrooms, and fraternity rushes – to look for a drug dealer.
Nick Offerman, of “Parks and Recreation” fame, reprises his role as Deputy Chief Hardy. “Ladies, nobody gave a —- about the Jump Street reboot, but you got lucky,” Hardy tells the two main characters. “So now, this department has invested a lot of money to make sure Jump Street keeps going.”
Ice Cube reappears as Captain Dickson, the head of the Jump Street program. “You two sons of ——- are going to college!”
Directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller also return for the sequel, after enjoying the $200 million gross of the first film, along with writer Michael Bacall.
According to MTV News, Lord and Miller spoke at San Diego Comic-Con of surprises similar to the Johnny Depp cameo from “21 Jump Street.”
“We’re certainly exploring options, trying to figure out what would be as fun as that,” Lord said. “It’s awesome to have in your hip pocket this amazing surprise, so we’re hoping to find a way, whether it’s some amazing casting thing or some cool story surprise. We’re trying to make it feel as fresh as the first one.”
“22 Jump Street” hits theaters on June 13, 2014.
