Depp To Star In 21 Jump Street Remake?

JOHNNY DEPP is considering starring in the film version of 21 JUMP STREET, the TV show which shot him to fame 20 years ago. BRAD PITT, VINCE VAUGHN and SHANNEN DOHERTY also launched their careers in the cult 1980s police drama, and director STEPHEN CANNELL is keen to bring his format to the big screen. Depp and Cannell parted on bad terms in 1989, but the PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN actor is prepared to put the bitterness behind him if he is allowed to play his character TOM HANSON as an ageing hustler. Depp tells the New York Daily News, "Now that would be interesting. "To go back and play the same character that I played 20 years ago with a bunch of people talking behind his back, going, 'He's out of his mind. He's really old now. But he thinks that he's really young.' That I would love to do."

I think that Depp [of course] and all of the original 4 should be on the remake. I love Depp and think lots more people would come to the movie just for him and love Ngyuen and DeLouis.I just can't see Depp wanting to do this movie since he hated the original thought police in school are spies and hates guns. I'll be very interested to see if this is a real quote from Depp and if his part comes to be.

Depp is an idiot if he thinks he can do "21 Jump Street" it was a very cool show and i liked HOlly Robinson but come on, if you bring it back then you will have to bring the entire cast.

I don't care what other people think saying "he's out of his mine" "he's to old".If Johnny want to do it that is up to him.Besides he look good for someone who is 43yrs old.
