The Story So Far
For fans of the Jump Street franchise, the news of a third installment has been long-awaited. The first movie, 21 Jump Street, came out in 2012, followed by its sequel, 22 Jump Street, in 2014. Both movies were a hit with audiences and critics alike, thanks to their unique blend of action, comedy, and social commentary.
The movies follow the adventures of undercover cops Jenko (Channing Tatum) and Schmidt (Jonah Hill), who are sent to high school and college respectively to bust drug rings and other criminal organizations. The movies poke fun at the cliches of the genre, while also offering a fresh take on the buddy cop formula.
What We Know About 24 Jump Street
While there had been rumors of a third movie for years, it wasn’t until 2021 that Sony Pictures officially announced that it was in development. The movie is set to be directed by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, who also directed the first two movies. The script is being written by Rodney Rothman, who co-wrote the second movie.
While details about the plot are being kept under wraps, we do know that the movie will be set in a different location than the first two movies. In an interview with Collider, Rothman said that the movie will take place in a foreign country, but didn’t reveal which one.
Who’s Returning and Who’s Not?
While it’s not yet clear which cast members will be returning for the third movie, it’s likely that Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill will reprise their roles as Jenko and Schmidt. Both actors have expressed interest in returning, and their chemistry was a big part of what made the first two movies so successful.
It’s also possible that other cast members from the first two movies could make appearances in the third movie, such as Ice Cube as Captain Dickson or Jillian Bell as Mercedes. However, there’s been no official word on who will be returning.
One person who won’t be returning is Dave Franco, who played the character of Eric Molson in the first two movies. In an interview with Collider, Franco said that he wasn’t asked to come back for the third movie, but that he would be open to it if he was.
When Will 24 Jump Street be Released?
As of now, there’s no official release date for 24 Jump Street. The movie is still in the early stages of development, and it’s likely that it will be several years before it hits theaters.
However, given the success of the first two movies, it’s likely that Sony Pictures will want to release the third movie sooner rather than later. It’s possible that we could see the movie as early as 2024, but it’s also possible that it could be pushed back further.
What Can Fans Expect from 24 Jump Street?
While we don’t know much about the plot of the third movie, we can expect it to follow in the footsteps of the first two movies. That means we can expect plenty of action, comedy, and social commentary, as well as some unexpected twists and turns.
One thing that fans can be sure of is that the movie will continue to push the envelope and challenge the conventions of the buddy cop genre. The first two movies were praised for their originality and willingness to take risks, and it’s likely that the third movie will continue in that tradition.
For fans of the Jump Street franchise, the news of a third movie is exciting. While we don’t know much about the plot or release date yet, we can be sure that Phil Lord, Christopher Miller, and Rodney Rothman will deliver a movie that’s both entertaining and thought-provoking.
Whether you’re a long-time fan of the franchise or a newcomer, 24 Jump Street is definitely a movie to keep an eye out for. We’ll be sure to keep you updated as more details emerge.
