says that New Line is looking for recruits for a relaunched Police Academy
No writer or director has been attached as of yet.Police Academy
was a seven-film lowbrow comedy series from Warner Bros. that saw a city throw open the doors of its police force to any recruit, much to the chagrin of its serious officers. The misfit officers band together and, of course, save the city.
Details of the tone of new movie, which would take the story to its beginnings with new characters, were unavailable.
Producer Paul Maslansky
says about the film, "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."
