Police Academy 8 dead?
Please god let it be true. Leslie Easterbrook, who played the dominating Debbie Callahan in Police Academy, has said that the plans for Police Academy 8 are pretty much dead. Yippeee!
"In the last couple of years there have been rumors about doing a number eight, so Jerry Weintraub's company and Village Roadshow came together and decided to produce the movie and they hired a writer who wrote two drafts and nobody was happy with them. It kind of died at that point. I think Warner Home Video wanted to do one straight to video and that seemed like a good idea. The last I heard, Warner wants to do it, but they want a producer to get independent financing"
This comes from an interview over at UGO through Moviehole and /Film.
Can't say I'm disappointed, the shine was fading from Police Academy really early on and it would need a major rework to get it going again. However, we are in the age of remakes, could it still happen?
