Channing Tatum will star in 22 Jump Street

Rising star Wyatt Russell has signed up to join Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill in 22 Jump Street.

Directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller are returning for the sequel to action comedy 21 Jump Street, based on the hit eighties TV series about two young cops going undercover in high schools.

22 Jump Street will see the cops Schmidt (Jonah) and Jenko (Channing) graduate to going undercover at a college, according to The Hollywood Reporter

Wyatt, who is the son of Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn, will play a fraternity brother who bonds with Jenko and is the lead suspect in the case.

He is best known for his minor league hockey career, but has been branching out into acting.

He appeared as a hockey player in Judd Apatow comedy This Is 40, and had roles in Cowboys And Aliens and Love And Honour, a drama that also starred Liam Hemsworth and Teresa Palmer.
