Back to Jump Street

Back to Jump Street

An 80’s TV series to base it on, Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum to star in, an approximate $40 million production budget resulting in over $200 million in box office revenues all spells one thing in the movie industry these days and that’s sequel.

Something of a sleeper hit, 21 Jump Street performed well both financial and critically, with generally positive reviews from critics. Reports are now surfacing that the studio is looking to move quickly on a sequel with filming schedule to begin in the second half of 2012 a mere 6 – 8 months following theatrical release of the first film.

If all goes ahead we could be seeing a sequel back on screens as soon as the second half of 2013! Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill are both currently reported to be returning however whether the original films director will be back is still to be confirmed.

Leith spent most of his formative years growing up on the coastal fringes of Western Australia without a cinema in sight. There he grew up on the wonders of home rentals before relocating to Perth and gaining access to a proper cinematic experience just in time for the Star Wars Special Edition re-releases. From there Leith's love of movies expanded to volunteering on a Star Wars fan film, reviewing films, writing about film news, and attending film and pop-culture related conventions on the other side of the world. Leith's favourite films are too many to mention but all start with the Star Wars saga, Back to the Future, the Dark Knight trilogy, Indiana Jones, Lord of the Rings and all things Kevin Smith. With an insatiable appetite for all things pop-culture related Leith also has an unhealthy addiction to the world of comics and can often be found buried under a pile of unread back issues madly trying to catch up on a number of titles coming out from mostly DC and Darkhorse.
