THE NAKED GUN To Abuse Nordberg Once More??
Ed Helms (THE OFFICE, THE HANGOVER films) will evidently star in a reboot of THE NAKED GUN.
THE NAKED GUN was a cinematic adaptation of the short-lived POLICE SQUAD TV series created by Jim Abrahams, Jerry Zucker, and David Zucker - the team who brought us 1980's AIRPLANE! Their POLICE SQUAD lampooned and eviscerated the cop/detective genre in the same manner AIRPLANE! took on in-flight disaster epics. And, on the whole, it was pretty great.
THE NAKED GUN, starring Leslie Nelson as Lt. Frank Drebin...
...spawned two sequels - THE NAKED GUN 2 1/2: THE SMELL OF FEAR and THE NAKED GUN 33 1/3: THE FINAL INSULT. There had been rumors for some time regarding a possible resurrection of the franchise, and if memory serves a script or two has already been attempted towards such ends. However, this appears to be the most solid run at resurrection yet - so much so that Thomas Lennon and Robert Ben Garant (co-creators and stars of RENO: 911, writers of the NIGHT AT THE MUSEUM films - and they recently brought us HELL BABY) have been brought in to tackle scripting duties.
No word yet on producers and whatnot, but one can only hope
