New Line is moving forward with its Police Academy remake, hiring Scott Zabielski to direct. This will mark Scott Zabielski's feature directorial debut, after serving as a director and producer on the Comedy Central series Tosh.0.
We first reported on this project in October 2010, when Paul Maslansky, who produced all the original Police Academy movies, set the project up at New Line Cinema. A screenwriter is still not attached for Police Academy at this time.
Although this will be Scott Zabielski's first feature film, he does have a bit of experience, which will come in handy. He went through the real police academy and currently serves as a reserve police officer in West Hollywood.
No production schedule was given for the Police Academy remake.
