Key & Peele will produce the Police Academy reboot

04.04.2014

So I completely forgot that Hollywood was trying to make POLICE ACADEMY happen again. Honestly, I have no issues with rebooting the series as long as thereís a cameo for the Guttes is in there.

If you werenít on board with a reboot of the classic cop comedy, then you might be after I drop this knowledge bomb. It looks like Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele who are the stars of Comedy Centralís KEY & PEELE will be on the New Line reboot as producers. This is a huge thing. If youíve seen these guys do their thing on the skit show then you know they are hilarious. They are definitely what this reboot needs.

No word yet on if the duo will star or not, but they should. Itís pretty much a must at this point.

Original producer Paul Maslansky is back on, and said this about the project going forward:

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.

The third season of KEY & PEELE ended last December, and the series was renewed for a four season to air some time this year. If you catch FXís FARGO, the guys will star as a team of cops for four episodes. Then thereís that movie that Judd Apatow is making with them. These guys are going to be busy for awhile.

This is the kind of thing that is fine to remake

The original is good, but there's plenty of horrible sequels already. It's a premise that lends itself to being able to be redone. If the right people are remaking something for the right reasons, then a remake is fine.

It's not like they didn't already ruin it with several sequels. Everything after 2 is crap. As long as they are on board because they are excited and have a direction - I'm all for it.

Of all the update and remake news this is the first in quite some time that not only makes sense but has me excited.

Much more hip to this then a new Ghostbusters. Just watched original two weeks ago, funnier than I remember. I really want to see Guttenberg and Michael Winslow (sound effects guy).

I'm fine with this. And I hope the boys star in it. If it half as funny as their show I'll be happy. I love their smart, dark sense of humor. This is great news for this reboot. It could become a under the radar gem.

I feel better that Key & Peele are producing this remake...part of me doesnt want another franchise being rebooted, but seeing their comedy show...I feel semi-confident that a new Police Academy will be cool.

Awesome

It wasn't even an hour ago when I said to my wife, "I need to rewatch the Police Academy movies. It's been years." Then I see this news. Key and Peele doing this movie makes me genuinely pumped to see it. I love their stuff.

A worthy update is a nice welcome to Police Academy as, for me, Police Academy 7 was really bad. Terry Crews would make a nice Moses Hightower. He was very hilarious in Brooklyn Nine-Nine.

These guys are definitely talented. Hopefully they can do for Police Academy what Phil Lord and Christopher Miller did for 21 Jump Street.
