Brie Larson Joins 21 JUMP STREET

Scott Pilgrim vs. the World actress Brie Larson joins Jonah Hill, Channing Tatum and Ice Cube in the big screen adaptation of ’21 Jump Street.’

Deadline is reporting that Brie Larson has landed the coveted female lead role in ’21 Jump Street.’ The actress will join Jonah Hill, Channing Tatum and the recently announced Ice Cube, who will play the precinct Captain, Adam Fuller.

Larson previously seen in ‘Scott Pilgrim vs. the World,’ ‘Greenberg,’ and the tv show ‘United States of Tara’ has nabbed the role of Molly, taking over the role that Emma Stone previously was forced to vacate to make time in her schedule for ‘The Amazing Spider-Man.’

The movie will go into production late April with Phil Lord and Chris Miller, the duo behind ‘Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs,’ directing from a script by Jonah Hill, Michael Bacall, and Joe Gazzam. The story centers on a group of youthful Los Angeles detectives who go undercover in a high school to put an end to teenage wrong-doings.

Created by Patrick Hasburgh and Stephen J. Cannell, ’21 Jump Street’ ran from 1987 to 1991 and starred Johnny Depp, Peter DeLuise, Holly Robinson, and Richard Grieco.
