Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill set to return in ’21 Jump Street’ sequel, set for 2014

Last summer, Sony announced they were preparing a 21 Jump Street sequel and Wednesday (at CinemaCon) have set a 2014 release date.

Star Jonah Hill confirmed the initial reports of the sequel’s script with co-writer Michael Bacall and may be filming as soon as September 2013.

Sony announced 21 Jump Street 2 as part of their 2014 slate at CinemaCon.  21 Jump Street was “too funny to leave alone and lends itself to a case-of-the-week comedy franchise,”

Channing Tatum is expected to reprise his starring role and Dave Franco is likely to return. Directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller are currently hard at work on the Lego movie, but will be certainly pursued for the sequel.

Tatum is currently enjoying some box office success with GI Joe: Retaliation which has been so successful, Paramount confirmed a third chapter in the franchise will be in development. Hill will be seen next in the film This is the End with James Franco, Emma Watson, Paul Rudd, Seth Rogen and Jason Segel.

The film had a $42 million budget and grossed over $138 at the US box office alone.
