"We stole these from J.J. Abrams."
Jonah Hill’s 21 Jump Street is inching closer to "thing that may actually happen" status. There’s news that Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller are in talks to take the reins. The movie, of course, centers on young cops who go undercover in high schools to prevent teen crimes. No strangers to comedic teen angst, Lord and Miller are also the creators of Clone High, a clever animated series whose untimely cancellation is a crime worse than anything Randy Quaid‘s wife ever did. Negotiations are in the works but it seems likely the duo will get the gig. After all, Jonah Hill really loves Meatballs. (Variety)
