The Playlist By Ken Guidry | The Playlist April 24, 2013 at 2:59PM

When a film like “21 Jump Street” winds up becoming such a huge hit ($200 million worldwide, to be more specific), the talk of a sequel is very much inevitable. But unlike many other films, thanks to the great chemistry between Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum, we welcome any news regarding a potential “21 Jump Street” sequel. And while directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller have certainly kept themselves busy with the upcoming animated film “The Lego Movie,” it sounds like they are definitely on board.

When a film like “21 Jump Street” winds up becoming such a huge hit ($200 million worldwide, to be more specific), the talk of a sequel is very much inevitable. But unlike many other films, thanks to the great chemistry between Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum, we welcome any news regarding a potential “21 Jump Street” sequel. And while directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller have certainly kept themselves busy with the upcoming animated film “The Lego Movie,” it sounds like they are definitely on board.

Producer Neal Moritz recently talked with Collider regarding “21 Jump Street” sequel news, and he’s not only confirmed that it’s happening, he says shooting is set to begin this fall. He also confirms that Phil Lord and Chris Miller “are attached to direct the movie, we’re actively developing the script with them. Right now we’ve got a first draft that we’re pleased and the second draft is coming along.”

Moreover, Moritz has given us a little taste of what we can expect from the Jump Street sequel: "It leads off where we ended the last film and our guys are going to college. Now, I can’t tell you more than that because there’s some fun to be had in what college they’re going to and what’s going to happen. It really just starts there. The relationship developed quite a bit in the first movie and now we’re kind of in the marriage phase between the two guys.  Now they’re actual partners, so they’re married – what happens once marriage starts? In certain ways, it’s kind of like 'The Seven Year Itch' of police buddy comedies." That's good enough for us.

Michael Bacall, who wrote the screenplay to the first film, is back working on the script for the sequel with Jonah Hill. And while we’re excited, Sony is even more thrilled. They’re planning on giving “21 Jump Street 2” a summer 2014 release date.
