Larson to star in 21 Jump Street?

Brie Larson has reportedly landed a role in the upcoming film 21 Jump Street.

The movie, which stars and has been co-written by Jonah Hill, is a contemporary version of the 80s series which featured a young Johnny Depp.

Brie, who has acted alongside Toni Collette in the hit TV series United States of Tara, will join Jonah, Channing Tatum and rapper Ice Cube on set, according to Deadline.

The movie, to be directed by Phil Lord and Chris Miller, follows a unit of undercover police officers who plan to invade some high schools in order to lower the rates of youth crime.

Brie was most recently seen in the comic blockbuster Scott Pilgrim Vs The World, playing rock chick Natalie 'Envy' Adams, Scott's ex-girlfriend.

21 Jump Street is set for release in April 2012.
