Ice Cube and Directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller Will Be Back for '21 Jump Street 2'

The 21 Jump Street sequel is starting to take shape. Collider has an interview with producer Neal Moritz, in which he reveals that Ice Cube will be back as the police captain, with original directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller attached to return too. It was previously announced that Jonah Hill and the first movie's screenwriter, Michael Bacall, are working on the script.

'Ride Along 2' Is Going to Be a Movie

It's only been a month since the Kevin Hart-Ice Cube action-comedy Ride Along came out, but the film is already getting a sequel. Universal has greenlit a sequel to the film, and Kevin Hart and Ice Cube are closing their deals to return, Deadline reports.

Kevin Hart and the Guy from the Coors Light Ads Star in the 'Ride Along' Trailer

Here's the trailer for Ride Along, a new movie in which Ice Cube plays the same character he plays in those commercials in which he has a rivalry with a can of beer. But this time, he's also a badass cop who takes Kevin Hart out on the streets to prove that he's worthy of marrying his sister. It doesn't come out until January 17th of next year, but that just gives you plenty of time to prep for it.

The New 21 Jump Street Trailer Is the Longest Trailer Ever

Four minutes and 43 seconds has got to be brushing up against some records for longest movie trailer ever. But while not all comedies might be able to pull it off, this trailer makes 21 Jump Street look worthwhile even after watching five minutes of its best jokes. It's got all the Rob Riggle touching Jonah Hill's tongue of the original trailer, plus more angry Ice Cube, frustrated school principal Jake Johnson (who could easily be playing his New Girl character who's quit bartending), and Channing Tatum telling science to fuck itself while standing in front of a white board full of the number 4. In other words, [...]
