Jeremy Garelick Enlists In 'Police Academy' Rewrite

The Break-Up scribe Jeremy Garelick has come aboard New Line’s reboot of the Police Academy franchise that launched in the 1980s and spanned seven films through the mid-’90s. The comedy, once again produced by Paul Maslansky, picks up the tale of a group of bumbling police recruits. David Diamond and David Weissman wrote the most recent draft.

Garelick, who did extensive rewrites on The Hangover, is separately rewriting Sick Day for Universal and Imagine. He’s attached to direct that film. Police Academy will be directed by Scott Zabielski, who’s making his feature debut after helming TV episodes that include Tosh.O. Garelick’s repped by UTA and Principato-Young, while Zabielski is repped by UTA and Underground.

I loved the first couple of movies they made and then I got tired of the rest but I wouldn't mind the remake of the first was very funny.

Not sure of a remake of this one. It would like trying to do a remake of Airplane. Would a remake actually be funnier or add anything? We're just throwing it out there!

alycakes2714d ago

Yes..that would be long as they don't draw them out and try doing the sequel after sequel.

I don't think a remake of police academy is going to work. I mean, the cops don't exactly have the same stereotypes of being the bumbling idiots anymore. Some do, but with all of the cop drama TV shows and films out there now, it's not something that has been portrayed in a long time.

I don't think a lot of audiences are going to buy into it, like they did before.
