Sony's 21 Jump Street is inching closer to production, and despite interest from both sides, a Johnny Depp cameo in the remake has not yet been secured. Here's what star Channing Tatum had to say recently about a Johnny Depp appearance in 21 Jump Street:
"I really hope he does it. It would mean the world to us and I think everyone wants to see him do it."
We reported back in December that Johnny Depp himself expressed interest in coming in for a cameo. However, there have been no official discussions as of yet for Johnny Depp to come aboard. Star/writer Jonah Hill has said he wrote a part specifically for Johnny Depp in the new movie.
"It's a total reversal. Jonah's the cool one and I'm the loser."
"I've never read a script that I'm like, 'How are they letting us do this?' I don't even mean the censoring board. I'm like, 'No, I can't believe they're going to put this in a movie.' It's freaking ridiculous."
Johnny Depp starred in the original 21 Jump Street series, which ran from 1987 to 1991.
