Jump Street Moving Forward With Meatballs Directors
Jonah Hill has been navigating the S.S. 21 Jump Street through the Hollywood seas for quite some time now, and it looks like the winds are finally catching the sails. With Columbia Pictures behind them, Hill and partner Mike Bacall are getting ready to take their story to the big screen with Hill starring and executive producing.
The Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs directing team of Phil Lord and Chris Miller are currently in negotiations to take the helm of the big screen remake of the TV show that introduced everyone to my favorite hetero love interest, Johnny Depp. This will be the their first time sailing into a live-action feature film project.
Lord and Miller also wrote Meatballs, which is quite possibly the funniest animated feature I've ever seen and instills quite a lot of confidence about how they'll handle the material. The team's other notable credit is CBS's How I Met Your Mother, where they were formerly writers and executive producers.
Jonah Hill and Columbia will be in good hands if the negotiations get finalized and the project moves forward with Lord and Miller on board. While this will be their first time dealing with live actors on a set, I'm confident this movie will turn out well. Anyone want to start placing bets on whether or not Depp will make a cameo?
