Phil Lord and Chris Miller head to 21 Jump Street

Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs helmers Phil Lord and Chris Miller are in talks to direct 21 Jump Street, the pic based on the TV series that launched Johnny Depp.

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 hatched the story together. Bacall wrote the script and Hill, will star in the film and be its exec producer.

Neal Moritz is producing with Stephen J. Cannell.
