In an era when remakes of 80s films are commonplace, it was only a matter of time before  New Line/Warner Bros. relaunched their lucrative "Police Academy" franchise. Now, The Hollywood Reporter states that with original producer Paul Maslansky, the redo is becoming a reality.

The seven-film comedy series starred actors such as Steve Guttenberg, G.W. Bailey, Bobcat Goldthwait, Bubba Smith, Kim Cattrall and Sharon Stone.

"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."

The new film has no writer or director attached at the moment.
