Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele – of the aptly-titled and brilliantly incisive sketch show Key & Peele – are set to produce a Police Academy reboot.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the duo is on board to develop the flick for New Line.
Though a reboot has long been in the works, this is the first bit of development news in some time.
Director Scott Zabielski, last named as helmer in 2012, has walked away from the project.
Key and Peele will team up with original producer Paul Maslansky for the new take on the seven-film franchise.
It’s unknown if they’ll star in it… but surely they would, right? The world needs a cinematic vehicle for these two comic talents, even if it is pre-loved.
It was announced in November that Judd Apatow was working with the duo on a film of their own. Until that manifests, we’ve got this.
Oh, and if they’re looking for character names to join the force, might we suggest Ibrahim Moizoos or Hingle McCringleberry?
