Sony Pictures reveals that 21 Jump Street 2 with Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum will be out in 2014

21 Jump Street

It was announced before the first film was even released but now it's official: a sequel to 21 JUMP STREET is in the works and will be out in 2014. This was announced yesterday at Sony Picture's presentation at CinemaCon in Las Vegas. The studio also showed off the new logo for the film but unfortunately there aren't any images of it available at this time.

The surprise hit starring Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum ended up pulling in over $138 million domestically (and another $63 million overseas) on a budget of only $42 million, which if you do the math correctly means 21 JUMP STREET was pretty profitable.

The end of 21 JUMP STREET kind of established where a sequel might go but it hasn't been confirmed if the next film would still follow that path. Jonah Hill (who is also helping with the screenplay again) and Channing Tatum will definitely be back however there's no word on if supporting characters played by Ice Cube and Brie Larson will return for the sequel but there's probably a good chance we'll see Ice Cube again.

Production for 21 JUMP STREET 2 should start sometime this year (I've heard September) and I wouldn't be surprised if they positioned the film to be released in the summer months of 2014 since the first film performed so well when it hit theaters in March of 2012.

Who's excited for the return of Schmidt and Jenko?

first one was hilarious, lets hope the sequel will be just as good, most comedy sequels can be hit or miss, but I got faith in this one.

Loved the show, loved the movie.... seen it about 10 times now and still laugh. However I just hope they bring Booker in for a cameo this time.

Be prepared to hit that red "thumbs down" button...

The first movie was mildly amusing AT BEST. Kind of funny as a one-off, didn't expect a sequel but it doesn't surprise me that one is being made. If I see this AT ALL, it will be on DVD. As a rental. A weekly.

Better start dieting now, Jonah.

As long as they get Phil Lord and Chris Miller to direct. They literally MADE the first one.

This is great news! I didn't really think the first needed or depended on a sequel. But the tone of the movie allows for any more sequels to be stand alone films as well. I'm thinking like the comedy version of Lethal Weapon. I think the sequel will definitely outperform the first one. The first movie did so well in theatres, plus it got an even bigger following after it's video release (Netflix release? DVD release? Blu-ray release?). I think with that entire following, there will be

Jonah Hill Is Fat Again

I loved the first one. Cried from luaghter. Jonah Hill lost so much weight his body type looked so weird. He looked like he lost all the weight in his face, legs, and arms but not in his mid section. It will be interesting to see with all that weight he put on if he can slim down again.

The first 21 Jump Street was a big surprise for me. If they can maintain that off-beat comedy with crazy action, the sequel should do fine.

Sorry but the first movie was below average and relied heavily on male genitally jokes. Sorry that is not funny.

Genital jokes. Sorry.

Yes I'm 24. This movie was directed to people in my age group. And How exactly am I a tool because I didn't enjoy the first movie?

you're a tool because you didn't take responsibility for your own preference and state that you don't enjoy dick jokes, you made the broad statement that they aren't funny to anyone except children. the performance and reaction to the film clearly disputes your assertion.

I'm definitely excited for this. I love a good buddy/cop movie, and this one was better than most of the recent output in that respect. And Ice Cube just about stole the show.

They need a cool villain to pit these two against. The first film surprised me, the fight during the Peter Pan play in which they're both suspended on wires was hilarious (But my favourite gag is the box of doves).
