The Police Academy franchise is mother of seven films, one live-action television series and an animated television series. It has squeezed just about everything it can from the franchise. Just about. Now we get news about a Police Academy reboot. I’m not sure if I am shocked that they are rebooting the series or that it took so long to think about a reboot. Leave it to Paul Maslansky to dream up yet another installment of Police Academy.
“It’s going to be very worthwhile to the people who remember it and to those who saw it on TV,” Maslansky said. “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.”
Let’s break down what Maslansky said…
