If you enjoyed 21 Jump Street, then this will be great news for you. The sequel, unofficially titled '21 Jump Street 2', has just been set for release on June 6th, 2014. The summer release date is a sign of confidence from Sony, which is a given considering the $201 worldwide box office and $138 domestic box office of the first movie.
The announcement came from Twitter, with the snippet reading, "Sony has just set a June 6, 2014 release date for '21 Jump Street 2', starring Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum. #movies."
There's no word on when the film will go into production, but it would have to be in between Jonah and Channing's other commitments. Jonah has promotional duties for 'This Is The End' and 'The Wolf of Wall Street', which will carry him through the end of the year, and he's also currently filming 'How To Train your Dragon 2' and 'True Story'. Channing is also currently filming 'Jupiter Ascending' in London until the summer, and then he also has 'The Contortionist's Handbook' in pre-production.
