New Line is moving forward with their planned remake of Police Academy and have placed Scott Zabielski at the helm. Known for producing and directing episodes of “Tosh.0,” Zabielski will be making his feature film debut.
The original seven-film comedy series starred actors such Steve Guttenberg, G.W. Bailey, Bobcat Goldthwait, Bubba Smith, David Graf, Marion Ramsey, Michael Winslow, Kim Cattrall and Sharon Stone and detailed the comical misadventures of police training.
Bizarrely, one bit of Zabielski’s resume that seems to have helped him get the gig is the fact that he has actually trained in law enforcement and works to this day as a West Hollywood reserve officer.
