Steve Guttenberg Says That a New POLICE ACADEMY Movie is Coming
There have been reports of a Police Academy reboot happening for years. The last thing we heard about it was that Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele were brought in to produce the film. That was back in 2014 and a lot has happened since then, especially with Peele's success after Get Out became a huge hit.
Well, according to Police Academy actor Steve Guttenberg, there is a new film coming. He doesn't offer any details and we don't know if Key and Peele are still involved, but I hope they are. I always enjoyed their style of comedy. Here's the Tweet Guttenberg posted:
The franchise's original producer Paul Maslansky has been attached to the project from the very beginning and I imagine that hasn't changed because, well... he was the original producer.
The first film was released in 1984 and Guttenberg played Mahoney, the leader of a ragtag group of police recruits who are called upon to protect the city. When previously talking about the new film, Maslansky said:
"It's going to be very worthwhile to the people who remember it and to those who saw it on TV. 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."
It'll be fun and interesting to see how this new Police Academy film comes together. I loved watching these films when I was growing up and I hope to see some of the hilarious original characters return!
What are your thoughts on the new Police Academy film being developed?
