Channing Tatum will star in the comedy, '22 Jump Street'.
The actor is joined by Amber Stevens and Wyatt Russell in the upcoming comedy sequel.
Amber Stevens, who starred on ABC Family’s Greek, is set to play Jonah Hill’s love interest in Sony’s collegiate comedy 22 Jump Street, TheWrap has learned.
The sequel finds stars Channing Tatum and Ice Cube returning along with filmmakers Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, who will direct from a screenplay by Michael Bacall and Oren Uziel.
22 Jump Street follows officers Schmidt (Hill) and Jenko (Tatum) as they go deep undercover at a local college. But when Jenko meets a kindred spirit on the football team and Schmidt infiltrates the bohemian art major scene, they begin to question their partnership.
In addition to cracking the case, the two freshmen must figure out if they can have a mature relationship like real men.
Apart from Stevens, new cast members include Wyatt Russell, who will be playing one of Tatum’s teammates.
Hill and Tatum are producing with Neal H. Moritz, while Stephen J. Cannell, who created the original TV series with Patrick Harburgh, will executive produce with Reid Carolin and Brian Bell.
21 Jump Street grossed more than US$200mil worldwide, and Sony is slated to release the sequel on June 13, 2014.
Stevens, who is best known for playing Ashleigh Howard on Greek, has also appeared on How I Met Your Mother and 90210. She recently appeared in Sony’s The Amazing Spider-Man and Ishai Setton’s indie comedy The Kitchen, and will soon be seen in Lionsgate’s horror movie Jessabelle. — Reuters
