Steve Guttenburg, the star of the Police Academy movies, has confirmed that another is in the pipeline.
Guttenberg, who played the wise-cracking Officer Carey Mahoney, revealed the plans in a Twitter conversation with a fan.
On asking him to consider London for a possible sequel, he replied: “Adam, the next Police Academy is coming, no details yet, but it is in a gift bag being readied!”

It would be the eighth in the series, the first seven movies being released in quick succession from 1984 to 1994.
The first was a raunchy R-rated comedy, with Guttenberg among a ragtag group of recruits who attend the academy of Commandant Eric Lassard, played by the late George Gaynes.
It made a star of Guttenberg, along with the likes of Michael Winslow, who played beatboxing recruit Jones, Kim Cattrall and Bobcat Goldthwaite.
It signalled the beginning of a hot streak for Guttenberg, who went on to star in hits like Three Men and a Baby, Short Circuit and Cocoon.
Latter films softened the tone, however, aiming at a more PG-orientated audience, as well as diminishing returns.
The final movie, Police Academy: Mission to Moscow, was a box office disaster, making just $126,000 in the US.
By that stage, only Winslow’s Jones, Gaynes’ Lassard, David Graf’s gun-nut Tackleberry and G.W. Bailey’s Captain Harris remained of the original cast.
