    reports that Bubba Smith has been telling people that Police Academy 8: Reunion Movie is in the works-theatricaly!!

    Former football player and star of the "Police Academy" series, Bubba Smith revealed to About.com that a reunion movie is in the works. "Yeah, I think we might do one this year," he said.

    Asked whether this would be a theatrical or TV production, Smith said, "theatrical. If we get all the people we want. We can get the whole cast, but there are some people that we want as our children who would be going in."

    The veteran cast would apparently be training a new generation. Bubba says that a lot of the original cast, including Steve Guttenberg, are up for the project.


    I'm SORRY BUT..I'm totally up for this!!
    hopefully they can do this before George Gaynes(Lassard) dies.
    But they will have to explain Tackleberry's abscence.

    I'm all for it, but the "New Generation" theme has killed many a beloved cult franchise, like the Revenge of the Nerds series. I hope the budget allows them to cast a few big-name (and actually talented) comedians to portray the new recruits.

    If the sound effects guy played by Michael Winslow shows up in the movie than I will be happy.

    David Graf, who played Tackleberry died of a cardiac arrest in 2001. He was only 50.

    Wasnt Kim Catrell in some of these?
    I think she's the only one that still has a career.

    Sounds like it could be fun. I'm sure everyone from the original movies could use the money [​IMG]

    Sharon Stone was, I believe. I'm not sure what the current prevailing wisdom on whether she has a career or not is.

    This would be great if it comes to fruition! I'm just going through the Police Academy boxset I got last week, and a new PA movie certainly would be appropriate, especially if it came this year (although that's addmittedly doubtful), since it would be 10 years since the last film.
