New Line Taps Scott Zabielski To Helm ‘Police Academy’ Remake

Deadline says

New Line Cinema has set Scott Zabielski to direct Police Academy, its remake of the long-running film series that started at Warner Bros in 1984 and spanned seven films. They were considered lowbrow, but how many Warner Bros series has spanned that many movies, other than Harry Potter? Zabielski is making his feature directing debut after directing several seasons of episodes of the hit Comedy Central show Tosh.O. While Zabielski is new to features, he’s quite familiar with the concept of police academy: He went through the academy and is a reserve police officer in West Hollywood. He’s repped by Underground and UTA.

I'd like to see a reboot of the series as long as they keep the core of what made the originals as much fun as they were. I always thought of it as an Animal House set in a Police Academy.

I enjoyed the first two very much and they were very funny. I don't remember how many they made but they stopped being that funny after a while.
