"21 Jump Street" Sequel Already in the Works

But you probably could've guessed that



    Jonah Hill & Channing Tatum's "21 Jump Street" Premiere

    Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum laugh it up on the red carpet for the premiere of their action comedy, "21 Jump Street," at Grauman's Chinese Theatre where they chat about who had the biggest ego on set. Also, will there be a sequel? (Published Tuesday, March 4, 2014)

    "21 Jump Street" didn't just finish #1 at the box office this weekend, taking in $35 million, but it also earned rave reviews from all corners of the media. So what's next for our baby-faced heroes?

    Well, seeing as Ice Cube ended "21 Jump Street" by threatening to send his charges to college, you can be sure that writer Michael Bacall was actually working on the sequel long before Variety reported it. Realistically, it's been in the works about as long as the original has been.

    As for the acting talent, while nothing's official, we have to imagine that stars Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum would be locks for a return engagement, and we certainly hope Ice Cube could be convinced to get back on board--his angry black man routine was inspired. We would love to see a bigger role for Nick Offerman, too.

    The biggest question mark will likely be directors Chris Miller and Phil Lord, who are currently working on the Lego movie, and will no doubt be flooded by offers as "Jump Street" continues to rake in cash.

    Here's a "21 Jump Street" Trailer the Whole Family Can Watch!
