Cloudy Filmmakers in Talks for 21 Jump Street


Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs writer/directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller are in talks with Columbia Pictures to helm 21 Jump Street, based on the TV series that starred Johnny Depp.

Variety says that the film, about a group of baby-faced cops who go undercover at high schools, has been guided by Jonah Hill and Mike Bacall, who developed the story together.

Bacall wrote the script and Hill will star in the film and executive produce.

Neal Moritz is producing with Stephen J. Cannell.
