That long-awaited and highly anticipated Police Academy reboot that everyone’s been clamoring for finally has a director. Deadline reports that New Line Cinema has set Scott Zabielski to helm the remake of the 1984 film. The original comedy spawned six sequels that culminated with 1994’s Mission to Moscow (shudder). Zabielski will make his feature directorial debut with the project, having helmed a number of episodes of Comedy Central’s wildly popular series Tosh.0. Zabielski actually went through the police academy, becoming a reserve police officer in West Hollywood. I’m sure this will come in handy when staging R-rated sex comedy gags.
No plot details are known at this time regarding the reboot (though my fingers are cross for a Steve Guttenberg cameo), but we should hear more soon now that a director’s attached. For a refresher, hit the jump to watch the trailer for the original film.
