Franchise reboot lines up new scribe.

Deadline reports that screenwriter Jeremy Garelick (‘The Hangover,’ ‘The Break-Up’) has been tapped by New Line to rewrite the script for its reboot of the ‘Police Academy’ franchise.

Launched in 1984, the comedy franchise followed a group of good-hearted but incompetent misfits and their comical misadventures in the police academy. The original spanned seven films through the mid-90s.

As previously reported, Scott Zabielski (‘Tosh.O’) is attached to direct, with the reboot making his feature directorial debut.

    Not sure enough time has passed since the original series ended. It was a long time ago yes, but they really brought the series to desperate lows before giving up on it. Will be interesting to see how the casting goes though.
