Ice Cube In Negotiations For 21 JUMP STREET
Deadline.com is reporting that Ice Cube is nearing final negotiations to join actors Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum in the Sony’s 21 JUMP STREET. Ice Cube will play the role of the precinct captain role, which was originated by actor Steven Williams. The film will be directed by Phil Lord and Chris Miller.
21 Jump Street, a show about undercover cops who infiltrated schools, launched the career of Johnny Depp back in the 80’s. It’s unclear what the direction of the movie will be and whether the series will replicate the plot of the original, but shooting is set to begin in late April and Neal Moritz is producing.
What do you think about Ice Cube’s casting? Do you think he’s too old for the role? (Depp was only 24 when he burst onto the scene.) Are you excited that the series is being turned into a film?
