After the jump; so what exactly does Hill have planned for his Jump Street remake?
A Jump Street feature film isn't exactly an easy proposition; it's no small feat to take the story of youthful-looking undercover police officers investigating high school crimes all that seriously. But before you think I'm being too hard on the show, keep in mind I watched all five seasons (even the year Depp was 'replaced' by Richard Grieco), and sure, Johnny Depp was dreamy...and yeah, that was about it really. But, if someone has to do a remake, it might as well be Hill, and luckily for us, he isn't planning a Starsky & Hutch style send-up. When asked about what he had in store he told Complex, "We're not even spoofing the movie. It's not strictly comedic, either. We're doing a full-on action movie, blowing sh** up." Judging by his description, I'm thinking Hill's Jump Street might end up a lot like Pineapple Express, but that isn't necessarily a bad thing, is it?
Do you think Jump Street can work on the big screen? Personally, I'm not sold on the idea, but maybe if Hill can get Depp to do one of those patented PSAs at the end of the film; we might be on to something.
