Opening in theaters on March 16th is the new action comedy from directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller (Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs) called 21 Jump Street, which is based on the classic '80s TV series that launched Johnny Depp's career. The new film stars Academy Award-nominee Jonah Hill (Moneyball), who also wrote the screenplay, and in addition features performances from Channing Tatum (Haywire), Brie Larson (Rampart), Dave Franco (Fright Night), Ellie Kemper (Bridesmaids), Rob Riggle (The Lorax), Nick Offerman (TV's Parks and Reacreation), and Ice Cube (Three Kings), as well as cameos by Holly Robinson Peete, Peter DeLuise, and Johnny Depp, who all reprise their roles from the original series.
IAR's very own Dana Gardner recently had a chance to sit down with actors Jonah Hill, Channing Tatum, Rob Riggle, and Ice Cube in New York City to discuss 21 Jump Street. The actors discussed the new film, their characters, why Hill didn't want to write just another remake of a TV series, Channing's impressive comedic skills, improvising on the set, where Ice Cube got inspiration for his role, how the film's cameos help add a sense of authenticity to the project, and what might happen in possible sequels.
