It’s Hingle McCringleberry meets Tackleberry! In a move that shows an incredible amount of foresight and maturity for a movie about farting cops, New Line Cinema have signed Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele to produce the upcoming Police Academy reboot. They’ll join original producer Paul Maslansky in making something nobody wants or asked for somehow likeable. Tosh.0′s Scott Zabielski had been attached to write and direct in 2012 but New Line has since decided that guy sucks.

It remains unknown whether or not Key and Peele will also star in the film or if Michael Winslow will be replaced by a guy with a really handy iPhone app. (THR)

‘Police Academy’ Reboot Will Be Helmed By A ‘Tosh.0′ Director http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/police-academy-reboot-will-be-helmed-by-a-tosh-0-director/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/police-academy-reboot-will-be-helmed-by-a-tosh-0-director/#comments Tue, 10 Jan 2012 22:57:14 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=242065 Now that this has been resolved, a nation can exhale and turn its focus to the presidential election.

Police Academy, the Tosh.0 of movies, will logically be directed by Scott Zabielski, who has never directed a film, but has directed episodes of the web-based Comedy Central hit. You didn’t think that Tosh.0 episodes directed themselves, did you? Each episode requires fifteen minutes of careful study to ensure that there are no boom mics in frame, and that Daniel Tosh doesn’t have any corn or cilantro in his teeth.

Adding to the humor is the fact that Zabielski is a “reserve police officer” in West Hollywood, meaning he probably tells people to cover up during Pride Week, and may or may not be the guy that gives my friends parking tickets when they come over to visit.

What else is known about the reboot, which has been looming over us like a blimp filled with cow shit since it was announced in 2010?

It will stick to the formula of ragtag civilians who become cops, and will almost certainly consist of a collection of bizarre scenes that can be played in any order without affecting the story one iota. According to a producer, it will also “probably retain the wonderful theme music.”

Can we just assume that McLovin has already been cast in this?

Steve Guttenberg Is Just Now Receiving A Star On The Walk Of Fame http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/steve-guttenberg-is-just-now-receiving-a-star-on-the-walk-of-fame/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/steve-guttenberg-is-just-now-receiving-a-star-on-the-walk-of-fame/#comments Wed, 14 Dec 2011 20:27:16 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=239762 I wrote one letter a day for almost 28 years. I feel vindicated.

Don’t ever say that the people who bestow stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame don’t take their time. The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, the group that wields the star-granting power, has decided, 20 years after Steve Guttenberg’s last relevant role (unless you count his appearance in Party Down), that he should be immortalized with the 2,455th star on the street.

The fact that the star for the actor from Police Academy and Cocoon is going right in front of the Police Activities League at 6411 Hollywood Blvd is even more awesome. The ceremony starts at 11:30 AM today, so if you’re available, or if you’re a relative of Steve Guttenberg, you might want to find your way down there and shake Mahoney’s hand, if not for his film work, then for his charity, the Guttenberg House, which gives at-risk foster children a place to live when they turn 18 and must leave foster care.

“Who made Steve Guttenberg a star? We do. We do.”

Michael Winslow From ‘Police Academy’ Is Still Making Really Amazing Noises With His Mouth http://www.screenjunkies.com/video/michael-winslow-from-%e2%80%98police-academy%e2%80%99-is-still-making-really-amazing-noises-with-his-mouth/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/video/michael-winslow-from-%e2%80%98police-academy%e2%80%99-is-still-making-really-amazing-noises-with-his-mouth/#comments Wed, 19 Oct 2011 18:57:53 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?post_type=video&p=233019 You'll probably spend the next 15 minutes watching Michael Winslow videos on YouTube.

It’s easy to make fun of this Michael Winslow because of his involvement in Police Academy and those pretty stupid Geico commercials, but all that stops now. This is very impressive. I have seen this guy recreate pretty much every sound imaginable, but I’ve never seen him do voices. And I didn’t know he could do Robert Plant.

It’s a testament to Winslow, appearing here on the Norwegian show Senkveld med Thomas og Harald, that I can’t really tell what sounds he is making and which ones he isn’t. The whole thing just confuses and amazes me, which is pretty much the point.

I played guitar for years and couldn’t get close to replicating those sounds. Maybe I should just try to sound like Michael Winslow, though I’d probably just end up vomiting and sneezing all over myself.

Like I always do.

As the Clash once sang, “London is drowning, and I live by the river.” Well, London isn’t drowning, it’s burning in a third night of unprecedented rioting that has now spread throughout the country. As police fight pitched battles with angry mobs, all we can do is sit and watch as the violence unfolds. Or, if that’s not to your liking, you can sit and watch these nine intense cinematic riot scenes, instead. The choice is yours.

Gangs of New York

This extremely violent Martin Scorsese film focuses on 19th century Irish immigration set against the backdrop of the 1863 New York City Draft Riots. As nativist and immigrant gangs fight for control of the city’s Five Points slum, political forces beyond their control come to a head. And by “come to a head,” I mean mobs of marauding rioters outraged over the recently enacted draft bring the city to its knees. While the incident might have made for one of the darker chapters in U.S. history, it also made for one hell of a movie.

New Line Wants New Recruits for ‘Police Academy’ Reboot http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/new-line-wants-new-recruits-for-police-academy-reboot/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/new-line-wants-new-recruits-for-police-academy-reboot/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 We already know that Steve Guttenberg feels another Police Academy would be good for the world. The healing power of nut shots and superglue pranks should not be underestimated. But do we really need another sequel? Or a reboot for that matter?? New Line Cinema and Warner Bros think so.The studios announced that they will be returning to the series with an all-new relaunch of the series. Though no writer or director are attached at this time, producer Paul Maslansky wants to start with a new cast. This news will make sound effects maestro and series star Michael Winslow cry like a baby. And I don't mean that he will  imitate the sound a crying baby makes. The man has bills! (THR)
