Ice Cube is now all set to return as Captain Dickson for 22 Jump Street, say The Hollywood Reporter. Even better news, I think, is that his role has been beefed up a little.
And then, giving us even more Dickson for our dollars, it turn’s out that one of the new roles in the sequel will be that of Dickson’s daughter Maya. She’s a student at the college where most of the action will take place and will be a love interest for Jonah Hill‘s character.
My best info says that she’s yet to be cast but I don’t think you have to scratch your head too hard to come up with suitable candidates. I don’t know who they’ll actually go with, but Zoe Kravitz was certainly a name near, if not at the top of the list.
Phil Lord and Chris Miller start production on 22 Jump Street in just a few weeks when post-production on The Lego Movie will have to become their moonlight role.
