Ellie Kemper is the latest actor to come aboard the TV-to-film adaptation 21 Jump Street, where she will be seen opposite Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum as two undercover police officers who head back to high school to thwart a drug ring.

Ellie Kemper is playing Ms. Griggs, a chirpy chemistry teacher who experiences sparks with Channing Tatum. The tables are turned in her favor when she discovers he's not really a student.

Phil Lord and Chris Miller will direct 21 Jump Street from their own screenplay. The project is currently shooting in New Orleans.
