Right on the heels of the latest class of NYPD cadets graduating, it seems that Warner Bros. is bringing back the Police Academy franchise. According to the Hollywood Reporter, series creator Paul Maslansky said, "I felt it was time to start again. I saw that 'Starsky & Hutch' and a number of other revivals were doing really well. 'Police Academy' has such a great history. I thought, 'Why not?'" Gothamist isn't totally sure of the logic, given our own problems with it, but we're sure Maslansky is getting tons calls from Steve Guttenberg, Bubba Smith, and Michael Winslow right now.

IMDB's listing on the Police Academy and its sequels; Sharon Stone was in the fourth one. And Gothamist must say G.W. Bailey is one of the archetypes for movie villains with his great 80s performances in Police Academy movies and Mannequin.
