Hi Bryan Here….
That’s right. There will be a remake of ‘Police Academy’. And New Line Cinema has chosen its director which will be Scott Zabielski. This will be Scott’s first feature. He has previously directed a few episodes of the Comedy Central series ‘Tosh.0’. Also, Scott went through the police academy and is a reserve police officer in West Hollywood. So I imagine he will be drawing a lot from personal experiences.
It’s going to be hard to replace a lot of these original actors from the original ‘Police Academy’ films. I wonder if any of the original actors will make cameo appearances in the remake, and I wonder if they are shooting for a franchise film series like the original. For some reason I always thought ‘Reno 911’ was sort of an homage to the police academy films, and maybe a remake at this point in time would be overkill. I just hope Guttenberg and Michael Winslow have cameos. Your thoughts?
