Jonah Hill wants Zombieland's Emma Stone to star with him in his new action movie 21 Jump Street.
The Superbad star co-wrote the film, based on a 1980s TV show, and he wants Emma, who played his crush in Superbad, to star opposite him as the female lead, Variety reports.
Jonah also wants Johnny Depp to make a cameo in the movie, as the Hollywood heartthrob appeared in the original television show, helping him launch his illustrious film career.
Cyrus star Jonah has said he wants 21 Jump Street to be an "R-rated, insane, Bad Boys-meets-John-Hughes-type movie".
Emma is also in talks to play the female lead in the Spider-Man reboot opposite Andrew Garfield, according to Variety.
21 Jump Street was co-written by Jonah and Josh Appelbaum, and will be directed by Phil Lord and Chris Miler, who directed animation Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs.
It is scheduled for release in 2012.
