Are Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill down for 23 Jump Street?

06.13.2014

As premature as it may seem to discuss a sequel at this point, it may not take long to come to that conclusion, especially with 22 JUMP STREET raking in $5.5 million in midnight screenings last night. To compare, NEIGHBORS scored itself $2.5 million during it's midnight premiere, and that flick has grossed $140 million (domestically) thus far.  At this rate, 22 JUMP STREET will score itself over $50 million this weekend, which is probably just shy of its production budget (the first having cost a little over $40 million to produce).  So if this flick is the success it looks like it will be, what say the cast and crew for a 23 JUMP STREET? In a recent interview, the directors stated that an alternate ending had Schmidt and Jenko leaving Jump Street. They relented, however, and here's why.

The directors, in regards to having the characters go on after 22 JUMP STREET:

Phil Lord: Let's think of the craziest sequels we could ever think of.

Christopher Miller: Yeah, and sort of, like, be able to have a lot of fun and say that these guys gone on forever but still tweak, sort of, the franchising of movies these days. It's not homework for us. We're just nerdy guys who like to watch movies.

Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum's thoughts on sequels:

Channing Tatum: We joked about it, doing like an octogenarian version of this, like GRUMPY OLD MEN style. Just kinda go crazy.

Jonah Hill: COCOON. Until we're like 85.

Channing Tatum: Please let us remake COCOON. Oh my God.

Jonah Hill: 80 JUMP STREET.

Channing Tatum: Instead of BAD BOYS, we're just remaking COCOON.

I've enjoyed everything I've seen so far for 22 JUMP STREET, so as long as the film brings the funny, I'm totally down for a sequel. Jonah and Channing (we're on a first-name basis) are obviously having a lot of fun joking about the idea of sequels, but it's certainly more suggestive of them actually wanting to do one. I don't see why we can't get a trilogy out of this, or at the very least, a remake of COCOON.

22 JUMP STREET is now in theaters!

They should do one more (with everyone from the first two films intact) and make one awesome, great, hilarious trilogy.

Like when Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson had that great chemistry, its great to see young actors get their own franchise and can make you laugh like these two guys do for me.

Awesome!

First movie made fun of the surge of remakes for 70/80s tv show into movies.
Second makes fun of unneeded sequels.
Third one will deal with making fun of the trilogy. When the third movie is always the worst and least respected. I have an idea of what they could do for the third one. Instead of high school or college, they go undercover as teachers!!! Makes perfect sense and rounds out their story.

In other words, "We like getting paid lots of $$$."

As long as the cash keeps rolling in, I suspect these guys will happily crank out everything from 23 to 80 JUMP STREET.

I haven't seen 21 JUMP STREET but I've loved everything else Phil Lord and Chris Miller have made.
