Jonah Hill rejected 21 Jump Street

Jonah Hill has revealed how he rejected the opportunity to be involved in the big screen adaptation of 21 Jump Street, before being persuaded that it would be a good idea. Jonah ended up writing and starring in the movie alongside Channing Tatum.

Hill explained, "When they approached me to do it five years ago, I tend to roll my eyes like everybody else would when you hear about a television show being made into a movie and you kind of think this seems like a corporate cash-grab or whatever, just to play on something that was popular a long time ago."
 
 
He added, "We make [a] joke in the movie three minutes into the film, saying like, 'Hey, we get what you're thinking', and we're going to call it out before you can and show you that it's a way better movie than you think you're about to see.” 
 
 
 
Jonah continued, "For us, it was just about if you could go back and relive the most important period of your youth thinking you have all the answers and getting back there and you think you have it wrong, that's a cool idea for a film. That's kind of the reason why I did it."
 
 
 
Jonah Hill can be seen starring alongside Channing Tatum in the movie 21 Jump Street, which is released on March 16 in both the US and the UK.
