    Police Academy 8?

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Police_...e_Cancelled.29


    I think if all the original cast members returned, and they could do it justice,
    it could be really good. Rumor has it that Guttenburg also wants too return.

    Anyone hear anything new on this? It's got too be better than the horrid Film 7. The only unwatchable one in the bunch

    The problem with all of the original cast returning is that Tackleberry (David Graf) died in 2001 from a heart attack.

    A couple of others....

    Cmdt. Lassard (George Gaynes) is about 90 now, and Callahan (Leslie Easterbrook) seems to have her plate full.

    How old would GW Bailey be now?


    I did a Wiki on Lassard, and didn't know he was close too 90 now. I figured maybe 80... Yeah, sad news about Tackleberry..... but since he was married in the films, they could always have his son there.

    The most obvious choice for a new film is that they are now the seasoned pro's and have too train the new generation Yer's of recruits..

    G.W. Bailey is on The Closer. I think he is probably around 60.

    Has Guttenberg been in much since the 80s? Not that he really needs to be. I heard a statistic that said he was in more movies than anyone else that decade, managed his money and is sitting on some major bank right now. If he does do a new Police Academy, it'll be because he wants to, not for need of cash.

    I was flipping the channels tonight over at my grandparents who have Cablevision, so I don't know what HD station it was. But suddenly there was Guttenburg sitting at a rich looking table talking too two guys about what type of food was on it.

    He hasn't aged too badly, except for the hair style he had on...

    This just screams 'major financial risk' on Warner Bros. part. As far as i'm concerned, 'Police Academy' should stay in perminant retirement.

    Didn't they replace most of the original cast for the last one?
    Old people used to annoy me at weddings by pinching my cheeks &
    saying that you are the next.
    They stopped doing that when I started doing the same to them at funerals.

    It was so bad, I've only seen it once. I think only Harris and Callahan where in it...

    We're talking Police Academy 7?
    If so, there were:
    Lassard
    Jones
    Callahan
    Harris
    Tackelbarry

    Anyway, in my opinion the best movies were the first four.
    After Mahoney left it just wasn't the same.

    As for Police academy 8.
    If most (or all) the cast members return, then sure, why not.
    I'd like to see that.
    Fictional characters are just that. Fictional. They have no personality or free will of their own.
    Writers and editors mold them to their own wants and needs.
    All we as the audience and fans can do is pick and choose our favorite interpretation and ignore the rest.

    I liked the first six, never saw the 7th. I'd go see the 8th if they have most of the original cast. The series was always good for a laugh or two.

    I think remaking the original would be easier than getting the original cast back. I loved those movies and I think if they are redone right, could restart the franchise.

    But then, slapstick comedy has a hit or miss quality to it.

    Oh, I loved these films (and the cartoon ), I would certainly enjoy a new one if it was ever made.

    The first six movies & the cartoon series were great, however the seventh movie & the live action show were terrible. But I'd still go see an eighth movie if nothing else than for the nostalgia & love of the franchise.

    Indeed, I love that march, sometimes I have some fun improvising over that theme at the piano. I'm also curious about the question you made, hope someone can answer that, I think most surely it was composed for the film though.

    I've got a lot of love for that series, though I haven't seen one of those movies the whole way through in years. I'll see one pop up on cable every once in a while - usually I'll watch a little of it if it's one I remember [ so, basically PA I - IV ].
    It'd have to be updated, of course...and on the level or even funnier than Reno 911 to work.
    ...and I'm spent...

    I wonder if we'll ever see another Police Academy film? Seems like this has been shelved and re-shelved quite a bit.

    And in the years since this post, Hightower (Bubba Smith) passed away in 2011 as well.
