Are you ready for some new cadets? Or maybe some old ones?
Guttenberg recently tweeted out a photo, asking fans to name his location; one fan responded with the hope that it was a hint to another "Police Academy" movie. Guttenberg replied that an eighth movie is in the works:
There have been a whopping seven "Police Academy" movies so far -- "Police Academy" (1984), "Police Academy 2: Their First Assignment" (1985), "Police Academy 3: Back in Training" (1986), "Police Academy 4: Citizens on Patrol" (1987), "Police Academy 5: Assignment Miami Beach" (1988), "Police Academy 6: City Under Siege" (1989), and "Police Academy 7: Mission to Moscow" (1994).
The core cats included Michael Winslow, G.W. Bailey, George Gaynes, Bubba Smith, Leslie Easterbrook, Andrew Rubin, Kim Cattrall, and David Graf. It's not clear who would return for the eighth movie, but -- sadly -- some of the original stars have left us. George Gaynes, aka Cmdt. Eric Lassard, passed away in 2016. That was a huge loss for the franchise, not to mention the world at large.
But if they are going to bother to make "Police Academy 8" after decades away, the nostalgia factor would require multiple returning stars instead of a cast "reboot." They could certainly mix the two, like the "Top Gun" sequel, but we'd need more than just Guttenberg. Love you, man, but ... bring friends.
