Hollywood has dragged the cult Police Academy film from its resting place, and after having its way with the desecrated corpse, set its rebooting eyes on a new adaptation of the bungling law enforcement cadets.

The project will be under the direction of Scott Zabielski, who will sit in the directors chair for the first time for the New Line Cinema backed film. Zabielski has previously directed episodes of Tosh.O, and also happens to be a reserve police officer for West Hollywood.Cyber Monday Deals On Uggs Boots

Original Police Academy producer Paul Maslansky is also back, hoping to revive the success of the early films, and hopefully avoid the disaster that the final films turned into.

“It’s going to be very worthwhile to the people who remember it and to those who saw it on TV,” Maslansky told The Hollywood Reporter.

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.

David Diamond and David Weissman, writers of When In Rome, are pulling scripting duties for the remake. If the Blue Oyster bar and a certain goldfish is exempted from this film, I’m considering it to be a disaster.
