*With Holly Robinson Peete making news because of John Mayer’s recent racist comments about her, we’re reminded that her old TV series is being made into a feature film for the big screen.

Via Twitter, Sony Pictures announced that a release date has been set for its upcoming film “21 Jump Street”:

“21 Jump Street the movie will be released in August, 2011! Do we have any fans of the TV show following us?”

“21 Jump Street”, which will be directed by Phil Lord and Chris Miller, serves as the remake of the undercover cop TV series of the same title which starred Robinson Peete, Steven Williams and would you believe, Johnny Depp!?
