Things We Saw Today: 21 Jump Street to Get the Female-Led Reboot Treatment

Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill in 21 Jump Street (2012)

The reboot culture is not showing any sign of slowing down in any way, with the news that we are going to have possibly a new incarnation of 21 Jump Steet, rumored to be staring Tiffany Haddish and Awkwafina.

21 Jump Street was originally a television show from the late 80s and early 90s starring Johnny Depp as part of a squad of baby-faced undercover police officers investigating crimes in high schools, college, and places where the youth come together.

It was already rebooted in 2012 in a film with Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum, which got a sequel in2014 with some amazing reviews and a solid box office. Which is why rebooting it again seems weird. Why not a spin-off since you know … it was supposed to be a squad of people. According to UPROXX, it is just a rumor at this point, but if we know anything about Hollywood it is that it loves to make money off the same ideas more than once.
