As if Seven, yes Seven "Police Academy" Movies are Not Enough, Get Ready for a Reboot! 

New Line Cinema wants to make a new "Police Academy" movie! Like other franchises ran to the ground because of multiple sequels, the solution to reinvigorate a tired property is to make a reboot aka remake the darn thing!

The Hollywood Reporter is saying that original producer Paul Maslansky is back for the new iteration, which has no writer or director attached.

The first film released in 1984 starred Steve Guttenberg as Mahoney, a repeat offender who becomes the group's leader when he enters the academy. We also met other characters such as Moses Hightower (Bubba Smith), Tackleberry (David Graf), Hooks (Marion Ramsey), and my favorite, Larvell Jones (Michael Winslow), the sound effects, beat boxing dude.

Other notables: Bobcat Goldthwait joined for the second film released in 1985, and both hot blondes, Kim Cattrall and Sharon Stone, were recruited as romantic leads. The last "Police Academy" film was released in 1994 called "Mission to Moscow."

Maslansky told THR that:

"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."

Hey, if it worked for "Star Trek" it certainly will work for "Police Academy" too, right? For now, let's relive 1984 with this original trailer of "Police Academy!"
