It’s only been ten years in development, alas seems the long-mooted Police Academy remake is finally inching forward.
Original producer Paul Maslansky is back to shepherd the reboot.
“It’s going to be very worthwhile to the people who remember it and to those who saw it on TV,” Maslansky tells The Hollywood Reporter. “It’s going to be a new class. We hope to discover new talent and season it with great comedians. It’ll be anything but another movie with a numeral next to it. And we’ll most probably retain the wonderful musical theme.”
The plan initially, I believe, was for the new film to go the “Ghostbusters 3″ route – with the original recruits (Steve Guttenberg, Bubba Smith and so on) training some new recruits. In fact, as recently as six-months ago Guttenberg (who, not surprisingly considering his fairly free calendar, has been championing the new film – and a “Mahoney” spin-off – for years now) announced he’d be reprising his role as Mahoney for the new film. Do wonder whether New Line knows of the Gute’s plan?
God It feels like yesterday I was at the cinema watching “Police Academy” (I believe I saw “Police Academy 2″ more than a few times at the cinema though, so it’s clearer in my mind) – how time flies, hey!?
