Man, its raining Steve Guttenberg news today!
The actor’s now trumpeting a new “Police Academy” movie – yeah, the one that was supposedly canned a few years back.
The Gute joined his, er, groupies at The Empire cinema, Bromley for a screening of the original 1984 comedy where he announced he’ll be directing the, er, highly anticipated ”Police Academy 8”.
And though he originally planned on reprising his role as Mahoney for the film (that’s what he told me a couple of years back anyway) the actor said he probably won’t wear the badge again.
Guttenberg later today The Sun that â€œWe are doing a new movie and it is going to be great fun,” adding. “A script is being written and so far it is really great, everyone from the original movies who is still around will return.â€
The actor said he’s hoping Kim Cattrall and Sharon Stone can be coaxed into reprising their roles from “Police Academy” and “Police Academy IV : Citizens on Patrol”, respectively, too.
â€œI know Kim and Sharon have been asked but they havenâ€™t said yes yet. It would be really great to have them onboard.â€
In 2005, Producer Jerry Weintraub and Warner Bros confirmed plans for an eight “Police Academy” – one that would reunite the original cast. Weintraub had since announced that the film wouldn’t be happening though.
Obviously Guttenberg’s privy to information that the producers aren’t. Heh.
