Jonah to Jump Street?

05.14.2008

While Jonah Hill didn't make it into another 80s fixture in the TRANSFORMERS sequel, he might make it into another 80s-based movie. According to Entertainment Weekly, Jonah Hill has signed with Sony to write and produce an upcoming feature based on the late-80s Fox series "21 Jump Street." "Jump Street" is best known for launching the career of Johnny Depp (and the sons of Dom DeLuise, which we should not be so thankful for). It apparently hasn't been decided whether Hill will star in the film or not but considering Hill doesn't have a writing credit to his name yet, I'd imagine starring would be some kind of qualifier. Sony wouldn't give up any details on the movie as to whether Hill would be adding a comedic spin but perhaps it'll be similar in tone to Seth Rogen's GREEN HORNET (comedy mixed with action or vice versa) that's also set up at Sony. The only bummer in the news is that Neal Moritz (STEALTH) is producing the film for Sony. Hill is currently filming THIS SIDE OF THE TRUTH with Ricky Gervais and Jennifer Garner.

I just don't see it.

Does Jonah have it in him? I dont know. He is a funny character actor but he must be ready to break out of that. I hope he is successful if he does.

Are we sick of this fat kid yet? I find him only kind of funny, at best, and now the studio is letting him write? What the hell? How are new screenwriters supposed to have a career outside of lame indie flicks with coat-tail riding jerk-offs like this literally clogging up the scene?

Aw boo!!!

I'm convinced that the Transformers talks broke down in large part because of us at JoBlo.com (stand up and take a bow)... even though only like 20 of us said something, we weren't like the hacks at aintitcoolnews who were giving Jonah a blow job over it... and looks what happens... he's now gone. Hollywood knows the schmoes know their shiz.

So upon reading this now, I am shaking my head in shame. Not shame in the classical sense, but in shame because Depp is now shamed. Which is

Jonah Hill, like I said before... fade away man. Just fade away. You're not funny, you're not cool, you're not intelligent.

Boo to this. Just boo. And to think, I used to doodle the 21 Jump Street logo on a pad during church when I was a kid and bored.

If you're Mike Sampson do you duck when StarGate TV fans lay down the smack over DeLuise comments?
