The big-screen version of 21 Jump Street finally has a female lead. Brie Larson (United States of Tara, Scott Pilgrim vs the World) will play Molly in the rather unlikely R-rated comedy/action translation of the TV show that launched the career of a young Johnny Depp in 1987.
Phil Lord and Chris Miller (Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs) are directing from a script by Josh Appelbaum with Michael Bacall, Joe Gazzam, Jonah Hill and André Nemec. Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum will play the primary roles as cops investigating the drug trade in a high school; Ice Cube is their captain. The Lord/Miller team had me locked after Cloudy, and this one has been talked up as a Bad Boys-style action picture. Let’s hope that really happens. [Deadline]
