Johnny Depp is seriously considering signing on to the 21 Jump Street movie and has asked to read the script next week.
Get Him To The Greek actor Jonah Hill is writing and producing the big-budget version of the show and confirmed Depp's interest in the project.
Filming is due to start in January 2011.
"We wrote a Johnny Depp cameo and he's the one who has expressed interest in doing it, so we'd be thrilled if Johnny would come and do it," he told Ryan, Monty and Wippa.
"He's going to read it in I think a week or something."
The movie version of the hit television show will feature different characters to that on the small screen, so Depp would not be reprising his original role.
