Released today on DVD and Blu-ray, 21 JUMP STREET is the big screen revisitation of the popular ’80s television drama that centered on a team of young (-ish) looking adult cops working undercover in an urban high school. Created (and often written) by iconic TV producer STEPHEN J. CANNELL, the show made household names of such stars as JOHNNY DEPP, HOLLY ROBINSON PEETE, PETER DeLUISE and RICHARD GRIECO.
A long-time fan of the show, actor/writer JONAH HILL came up with a reboot idea and, with CANNELL’S blessing, collaborated with actor/screenwriter MICHAEL BACALL to hammer out a script that has Hill teaming up with CHANNING TATUM to bring JUMP STREET back to life.
Probably best known for his work in front of the camera, it was always HILL’S ambition to be a writer and he tells us that he only got involved in acting as a way to improve his writing. (CLICK ON THE MEDIA BAR FOR AUDIO)
