Jeremy Garelick Tackles Police Academy
He'll re-write the reboot

Jeremy Garelick Tackles Police Academy

It’s been a couple of years since we've heard any solid reports on the Police Academy reboot that has been threatening to crawl out of development and worry our cinemas. It’s mostly still sitting in the script swamps, but now The Break-Up’s Jeremy Garelick has been hired to take another crack at it.

Though talk had previously been about original series star Steve Guttenberg and some of the old crew reuniting for yet another movie, the current plan is to go back to the drawing board on the first movie’s concept, which saw the titular training facility throwing its doors open to all and the resulting crop of bumbling recruits saving the day. That 1984 original went on to spawn six sequels and a couple of TV shows, so New Line is naturally eager to tap that vein again. David Diamond and David Weissman had written the most recent version of the script.

Garelick will be working with telly director Scott Zabieski, who is attached to make his film debut with the project. The writer has also been working on Sick Day for Universal, which he may end up directing, plus a few other projects bubbling away, including The Insane Laws and The Golden Tux.

It'll be interesting to see if they keep the Blue Oyster Bar queer jokes in the remake (probably too un-PC these days). The old blow-job-under-the-podium gag will no doubt get an airing. The Police Academy movies were basically Carry On Policing, the difference is that the Carry Ons did the same jokes in different scenarios where Police Academy did the same jokes and never changed the scenario.
