Colombia Pictures has debuted the red band trailer for 21 Jump Street, a feature film adaptation of the mid-’80s television series that jump-started Johnny Depp‘s career. The film features Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum in the lead roles with Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs helmers, Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, directing.
I don’t know about you, but I haven’t seen a single episode of the television show so I have no idea if what to expect from the film, but based on the snippets I saw while snagging the above screenshot it looks like it’s supposed to be some sort of buddy-cop spoof as Jonah Hill and C-Tates play high school students looking for some sort of drugs. Did the original “21 Jump Street” have a lot of comedy in it?
Here’s the official synopsis from the studio:
The film co-stars Ice Cube, Brie Larson, Rob Riggle, DeRay Davis, Jake Johnson, Johnny Simmons, Dakota Johnson, Ellie Kemper and is expected to feature a cameo appearance from Depp. Colombia is set to release the film in theaters on March 16, 2012.
