‘Meatballs’ Directors to Police ’21 Jump Street’ Adaptation

Columbia Pictures is negotiating with the Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs directing duo of Phil Lord and Chris Miller to step behind the camera on a big-screen version of 21 Jump Street. Variety reports Jonah Hill will star and executive produce. 

Neal Moritz is producing with Stephen J. Cannell.

The film, about a group of baby-faced cops who go undercover at high schools, was written by Mike Bacall, who hatched the story with Hill.

The series ran from 1987-1990.
