21 Jump Street star Ice Cube has said that the sequel, 22 Jump Street, will be a lot crazier than the original.

The actor plays Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum's boss in the films and told Collider of the sequel, "It's a lot crazier! If you give [directors] Phil Lord and Chris Miller more money, then they come up with more crazy stuff.

"We shot a lot of crazy s***. We had fun. We were able to improve as much as we wanted. We were getting nice, juicy takes of all kinds of crazy stuff. You could damn near cut two movies together."

The 44-year-old star revealed that he jumped at the chance to reprise his role as Captain Dickson, "I always want to read the script before I totally commit, but it was pretty clear that they wanted me to be a part of the sequel and they wanted to beef up my role.

"You can't be mad at that. I told them to pencil me in and let me check it out."

22 Jump Street is set to hit cinemas on June 6.
