Clone High creators may go back to school for 21 Jump Street

21jumpstreetOkay, so you know that 21 Jump Street movie that Jonah Hill is heading up? No? Dude that’s old news. Well, anyway, there is one, and it was written by Jonah Hill and Mike Bacall (Scott Pilgrim vs. the World). Hill swears it’s not a spoof (“we’re doing a full-on action movie, blowing sh** up”), and that they’re going for an R rating. Seriously, I’m not making this up.

Well, anyway, today, Variety has revealed that Phil Lord and Chris Miller – the co-creators of MTV’s short-lived but brilliant Clone High, one-time How I Met Your Mother producers, as well as the writers and directors of a recent animated hit you might have heard of called Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs are “in negotiations” to direct the film.

As always, take that “in negotiations” line to heart. This shit ain’t real until the ink is dry. But would it make me ten times more likely to see the 21 Jump Street movie? Shit yeah, it would.

IMDB has it down for 2012, but there’s no planned release date for this, either, so don’t start holding your breath yet. This could get fast-tracked, or it could just sit on a shelft somewhere, waiting to get a greenlight. Sometimes I get the feeling Hollywood just announces shit like this so they can watch the internet reaction to gauge interest.

    Clone High remains the best idea that MTV ever gave up on. Hilarious show, terrific voice acting, and canceled on my freaking birthday.
