21 JUMP STREET is the next in a line of remakes and adaptations, following MIAMI VICE, STARSKY AND HUTCH, and A-TEAM by being the next classic TV series to get the big screen treatment. With the cast being led by Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum, the film is lining up to a fun comedic action movie and is being likened to the BAD BOYS franchise.

Now the film has seemingly found its female lead. Brie Larson, who recently showed up in SCOTT PILGRIM VS. THE WORLD as the infamous Envy Adams, lead singer of The Clash At Demonhead, has been chosen to take up the lead. She will be filling the shoes of the character Molly. The film is being directed by Phil Lord and Chris Miller, who recently directed CLOUDY WITH A CHANCE OF MEATBALLS.

I'm excited to see Larson get a bigger role than that in SCOTT PILGRIM, as she really owned the role and made it fun. I'm sure she'll be able to do the same for her role in JUMP STREET. This is also a really great way to throw her deeper into the spotlight, make her more well-known than she currently is. What do you guys think?
