Channing Tatum has said he's hopeful Johnny Depp will make an appearance in the upcoming 21 Jump Street film.

The movie, which The Eagle star will act in and executive produce, is a contemporary version of the 80s police series, which featured a young Johnny as police officer Tom Hanson.

The Pirates Of The Caribbean star has previously said he'd be happy to make a cameo, but Channing admitted he's not sure yet whether the Hollywood superstar will find time to take part.

"I don't know. It's one of those things. He's got one of the tightest, busiest schedules you can possibly ask for, but I really hope he does," he said.

"He's a busy man. He's bigger than our movie as well."

Speaking at The Eagle's UK premiere in London, the 30-year-old joked: "It would be fun for us and probably a haunting memory for him."

Channing will be joined on set by actress Brie Larson, rapper Ice Cube and Jonah Hill, who has also co-written the film.

21 Jump Street is set for release in April 2012.
