Johnny Depp could be starring in the remake of ‘21 Jump Street‘.

The ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ actor – who played Officer Tom Hanson in the TV drama of ’21 Jump Street’ – is reportedly set to take up a cameo role in the movie, which will feature Channing Tatum, Jonah Hill and Ice Cube.

Executive producer and writer of the film Jonah – who starred in ‘Get Him to the Greek’ – has previously revealed just how good having Johnny in the film would be for everyone involved – and we agree.

He said:

“We wrote a really awesome Johnny Depp cameo. I talked to his agent a few times. I’ve never met the man. He probably won’t do it, but if he does, it will be one I think he’d be proud of, and it’s a real crowd pleaser. It’s not cheesy.”

And Johnny has previously admitted he’d be keen on a role in the motion picture.

He added:

“If we find the right thing to do, it could be very funny. It sounds like a great idea. It’d be hilarious.”
