21 Jump Street - Don't expect an extended cut
Not only somewhat dated films with a considerable fanbase get remakes but TV series as well. Famous examples from the more recent past include Charlie's Angels or Starsky & Hutch. Now, Johnny Depp's breakthrough format 21 Jump Street joins them.
With Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill starring, the trailers promised that raunchy humor would play a prominent role in the comedy. The MPAA's rating confirms that: Rated R for crude and sexual content, pervasive language, drug material, teen drinking and some violence.
Today, it's not a rare occasion to put out longer unrated versions on DVD/Blu-ray anymore. So one could anticipate that the studio behind 21 Jump Street decides to extend its comedy as well. However, as the two directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller revealed in an interview with Collider, they do not plan to make an extened cut of their movie, although they have 20 deleted scenes and about 45 minutes worth of outtakes.
Those who refrained from going to cinemas because they expected a longer version later on, can now consider again if they want to see the comedy on the big screen.
