As if six sequels weren't enough, the cult '80s comedy 'Police Academy' is definitely set for a remake: and now it has a director attached.

Both Deadline and Entertainment Weekly have confirmed that the 'Police Academy' remake is underway, and are reporting that studio New Line have appointed Scott Zabielski to direct.

It will be Zabielski's first feature film, though he has plenty of comedy experience after working on several series' of Comedy Central's 'Tosh.O'.



Bizarrely, he also has his own personal experiences of real-life 'Police Academy'; apparently he was a City of West Hollywood reserve police officer.

Rumours of a remake first began to circulate back in 2010, when original producer Paul Maslansky told the trade press he wanted a reboot that would be "anything but another movie with a numeral next to it".

The first seven 'Police Academy' films made a combined £156 million at the box office.

The next step is casting, and a generation of fans will be watching eagerly to see who is hired to recreate the zany hijinks of the original.

But will anyone want to be the next Steve Guttenberg?
