What Would Johnny Say???

| Filed under: Film FlickersJohnny Depp


Remember 21 Jump Street, the 80's undercover cop TV show that introduced the world to the magnificence that is Johnny Depp?

Well…according to reports, Superbad star Jonah Hill is in negotiations to develop a movie adaptation of the show!

Jonah Hill????

Let's hope he doesn't ruin star in it!

Hill's going to write the screenplay and serve as an exec. producer, but it's not clear if he'll make an appearance in the movie.

Neal Moritz of I Am Legend and 21 Jump Street co-creator Stephen J. Cannell will produce.

Sadly, we're not expecting Johnny Depp to make an appearance. Do you?

Johnny's too um, seasoned, to re-visit his past this way, right?

And, this announcement proves once and for all that originality is officially dead in Hollywoodland!

    OH MY GOD, can nobody have an original idea these days! I feel like every other movie or show has been a remake for the past 5 years. Why can't nobody think for themselves anymore. This is a bad idea!

    I doubt Johnny would make an appearance. He's said in many interviews that he hated doing 21 Jump Street.

  12. LoveMaegan.com says – reply to this


    um, 21 Jump Street with Jonah Hill would be HILARIOUS! DO IT.

  27. miss anna says – reply to this


    I agree - Hollywood is a recycled cesspool of waste when it comes to movies.

  28. YAWN!! says – reply to this


    Remakes are sooooo boring! Blegh! I thought people in Hollywood get paid the big bucks because they're super-duper creative. Guess not.
    Too bad…I loved that show too. :(

    doesn't the fat guy (deluise) do the beneful dog food ad? he's done well……

  31. depechemiami says – reply to this


    He didn't like it while acting in 21 Jump Street. It's well known through his interviews. I say, he wouldn't pay any mind to it.

  32. heather says – reply to this


    NO NO NO don't mess with a girls childhood fantasies!!

  33. of course says – reply to this


    damn, johnny is SUCH a stud. i love him.

  34. hayley DEPP!! says – reply to this


    i am johnny depp's BIGGEST fan in the universe…and he would never do it again its not him anymore. it got him on the ladder but i don't think he enjoyed it from what i researched! i know im a complete loser!!! xxx

  35. collegegrad321 says – reply to this


    That old pic of Johnny kind of looks like Stephen Coletti

  36. Brittany says – reply to this


    Johnny Depp hated that show- he tried to get fired so many times, they finally let him out of his contract.

    No way he'll do the movie.

  37. Leen says – reply to this


    Hey Perez, Johhny was introduced to us in Nightmare on Elm Street 3 years before 21 Jump St…

  38. Lali says – reply to this


    oh jonny

  39. smiff says – reply to this


    I think Johnny should play a pirate in the remake

  40. sourdoggie says – reply to this


    Oh god WHYYYYYYYYYYYYY??????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I liked the show but I don't think a movie would be good.

  41. monkeycox says – reply to this


    He is obviously going to play the character that Dom DeLouise's son played - not the character Johnny Depp played, dumbass!

  42. Ahoy! says – reply to this


    He'd have to resistance train with dedication to get those shoulders, neck and THAT body back again. You shrink as you get older due to muscle loss unless you do weight or physical work or you GAIN weight. He still makes a mighty fine pirate.

  43. Pocahontas says – reply to this


    whoa. that Cherokee Indian DNA in his genetic make-up sure looks delicious! he is just too gorgeous.

  44. JD Fan says – reply to this


    Johnny will most definitely not show up if this hair-brained idea actually makes it to the big screen. He hated that show and begged to get off it (which you neglected to mention).

    You're right about one thing though. Hollywood is sorely lacking for original ideas. I hate all these remakes! There must be an orginal idea out there somewhere!

  45. Richard Grieco says – reply to this


    Re: Kate – Richard Grieco passed out from too much eyebrow tweezing. no. no. it's true. ;)

  46. cats7 says – reply to this


    Johnny HATED being on that show and he's said so in many various interviews.
    He'd rather stab himself in the eye with a screwdriver than be apart of anything to do with 21JS.

    "And, this announcement proves once and for all that originality is officially dead in Hollywoodland!"

    It won't be once I get out there!!

  48. TimFarrissFan says – reply to this


    Ahh, let the kid do it for Christ's sake!! He looks just like that Johnny Depp dude anyway!
    Not that I care, Depp is too skinny anyway, and in my eyes, UGLY!!!

  49. Vee115 says – reply to this


    Chance of Johnny Depp cameo = 0. Funny, I remember when he left the show - I was crushed! Good move, though! No one else has done squat!

  50. NightmarE D says – reply to this


    Why wouldn't Johnny Depp have a little cameo in it? 21 Jump Street was also NOT where he got his start by the way.

    He got his start in A Nightmare On Elm Street. He also came back and did a cameo in "Freddy's Dead: The Final Nightmare" at the time he was doing 21 Jump Street. He was also wanting to be in "Wes Cravens New Nightmare" but Wes Craven thought he'd be too busy and never asked him to do the cameo in it. Johnny Depp called Wes Craven and said he would've done it in a heartbeat if he had asked him to.

    I wouldn't be surprised at all if he had a cameo in this movie

  51. jeremy says – reply to this


    Fuck you perez!
    Jonah hill is the shit.

  52. Kelly says – reply to this


    21 Jump Street did not introduce us to Johnny Depp. His first role as an actor was in Nightmare on Elm Street 1.

  53. deredeo says – reply to this


    LMAO!!! really - this should have been done 20yrs ago…who the hell wants to see a movie about cops undercover in hs today?

  54. Melinda says – reply to this


    I never watched the show when Johnny was on it, but I did watch Richard Greico (or however its spelled). I haven't seen him in anything since the 80's so I'm sure he's free to star in the movie!

  55. toy says – reply to this


    Great, Hollywood will manage to ruin yet another show that I love from the 80s. You already took Miami Vice, the Transformers, and Knight Rider from me (and I hear your going to ruin the A-team), what next, The Jeffersons??

  56. Maya says – reply to this


    FUCK ALL MIGHTY !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  57. Smirk says – reply to this


    If Johnny doesn't do a cameo, perhaps Keith Richards can do one. Or William Shatner. Or Christopher Walken.

  58. Bri says – reply to this


    He would be a fool for being in a movie like this. Anyone who thinks they can fill Johnny Depps role is out of their mind!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  59. Cassie says – reply to this


    I dig Jonah Hill…it could be funny…but I AM getting tired of movies being made from old television shows and what-not. :)

    I'm going to shoot myself, DON'T DO THIS TO MY JOHNNY!

  62. Reality Byte says – reply to this


    Why why why fucking why? Does no one have any original ideas?

  63. David says – reply to this


    Well since he hated the show, I don't think he gives a shit!

  64. i know says – reply to this


    perez- jonah is a writer so let him do his thing. he is not starring this - coming from first hand knowledge, he told me so himself

  65. Hey Greico! says – reply to this


    Okay. Originality may be dead but, my god, who doesn't love Johnny Depp?? Even if you don't love him you gotta admit that he's SEXY. Yeah, it may be a remake but wow - he is HOT. Who gives a royal rat's a**? Let's just enjoy his flesh. Naughty!!!!

  66. Kelly says – reply to this


    He hated doing that show. He would never make an appearance.

  67. john dixon says – reply to this


    21 Jump Street without Depp would suck…Exhibit A: Season 5 of 21 Jump Street

    JOHNNY DEPP should appear on it to spice it up with his imortal sexiness ;) I like Hollywood bringing back previous HOT hits, but Superbad boys with their looks are lucky they got it that movie =/ Hollywood needs to bring sexy back , i.e. Johnny Depp types & some new ,upcoming sex kitten girls ;)

  70. Kate says – reply to this


    They'd better film it in Vancouver. Anywhere else would be blasphemy.

  71. Bridie says – reply to this


    OMG! That is the first time Ive ever seen Johnny from his Jump Street days and OH MY GOD! It is such a shame that Im too young to have seen it originally because My God! The man is GORGEOUS! And he's only improved with age. I think if they did a few magic make up tricks and fixed up his hair he could be in it. Even though it sounds craptacular. Why do people feel the need to try and improve things that are already awesome, anyway?

  72. Shelley says – reply to this


    Johnny may do a small cameo, similar the Starsky and Hutch movie. He is a fun guy and would likely laugh at the movie being made in the first place. Also, I think he is greatful for every role he has ever had. I think he has learned from all of it and 21 Jump Streeet is no different. All he would need to do is smile in the movie and his fans would be happy!! I'd love to see him play a vagrant that sells info to the officer for like the burger the officer is eating, or something funny-dumb like that!

    How gorgeous does Johnny Depp look, he has aged so well. He is the same age as Brad Pitt but looks so much better. I like his films aswell, apparantly in the Libertine, I was reading an interview with Rupert Everett who played his male lover in this & they had a full on snog which was deleted, both Johhny & Rupert were furiuos at this. What kind of fuckwit would have deleted a scene with Johnny kissing another guy!!
