Earlier today some more details emerged on the sequel to “21 Jump Street,” a film that has taken the slow and steady approach to getting in front of cameras. Production now looks likely to be underway on “21 Jump Street 2” at least 18 months after the first film hit theaters, and that’s a gap that a couple of upcoming comedies are hoping to avoid should their first installments prove a success.

Since starting his studio career off strong with the solid hit “Barbershop,” director Tim Story then slowly turned in a string of mediocre releases (“Taxi,” “Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer”) that finally had folks questioning how he made off so well the first time.
