A sequel to 21 Jump Street has officially been confirmed. We figured it would, but we were not sure if Dave would be in it. It looks like Dave will be back for the sequel!
Last summer, Sony announced they were preparing a 21 Jump Street sequel. Jonah Hill followed up to say he was working on the script with Michael Bacall and expected to start filming in September 2013. It looks like all is going according to plan, as Sony announced 21 Jump Street 2 as part of their 2014 slate at CinemaCon. 21 Jump Street was too funny to leave alone and lends itself to a case-of-the-week comedy franchise, so I look forward to another adventure.

Hill and Channing Tatum are expected to reprise their starring roles. Dave Franco says that despite plot logistics, he heard there is a place for him in the sequel. Directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller are currently hard at work on the Lego movie, but it sounds like there will be room in their schedule to return to Jump Street.
The new film will see Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum reprise their roles as hapless cops Schmidt and Jenko, who are sent undercover to a US high school.
Dave Franco is also expected to return as high school drug dealer Eric Molson. Hill will once again write the script with Michael Bacall. It has yet to be confirmed whether joint directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller will be back for the sequel
