Sony’s “21 Jump Street” movie is still hopping. The big-screen reboot of the ’80s FOX cop show has added Brie Larson to the cast.
The “United States of Tara” star will be playing Molly, the female lead on the show. The article doesn’t say if Molly is one of the movie’s baby-faced undercover cops or one of the “teens” in the high schools that the cops target for crime elimination.
“21 Jump Street” will star Jonah Hill (aka the Fat Kid from “Superbad”) and Channing Tatum (aka Duke from “G.I. Joe”) as undercover cops in high school, with former badass rapper turned generic movie actor Ice Cube playing their no-doubt no-nonsense taking, snarling Police Captain.
Phil Lord and Chris Miller are directing.
