Official press release below…

Principal photography began September 28th, 2013 on Columbia Pictures’ and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures’ ‘22 Jump Street,’ the sequel to the 2012 action-comedy blockbuster ‘21 Jump Street,’ which took in more than $200 million at the worldwide box office.

‘22 Jump Street’ reunites Jonah Hill (‘Wolf of Wall Street’) and Channing Tatum (‘Foxcatcher’) as they return to their roles as undercover cops Schmidt and Jenko; they are also re-teaming with ‘21 Jump Street’ producer Neal H. Moritz (‘Fast and Furious’ franchise) and directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller (‘Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs,’ ‘The Lego Movie’). Alongside Hill and Tatum, Ice Cube (‘Ride Along’) reprises his role as Captain Dickson.

In the action-comedy ‘22 Jump Street,’ after making their way through high school (twice), big changes are in store for officers Schmidt (Hill) and Jenko (Tatum) when they go deep undercover at a local college.

Neal H. Moritz produces through the Original Film banner, along with Hill and Tatum. Executive producers are Brian Bell (‘Cedar Rapids’), Tania Landau (‘Vantage Point’), Lord, Miller, Reid Carolin (‘Magic Mike’), and Stephen J. Cannell.

The screenplay is by Michael Bacall (‘21 Jump Street,’ ‘Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World’), Oren Uziel (‘Kitchen Sink’) and Rodney Rothman (‘Forgetting Sarah Marshall’), from a story by Michael Bacall and Hill, based on the television series ‘21 Jump Street’ created by Patrick Hasburgh & Stephen J. Cannell.

Filming on the sequel is taking place in New Orleans and Puerto Rico.
