Weintraub Cancels Cops, Finds God Instead

by | December 7, 2004 | Comments

MTV Movies contributes a piece of news that should prove absolutely heartbreaking to anyone holding out hope for a new "Police Academy" sequel…and that includes Steve Guttenberg: "Producer Jerry Weintraub, whose ‘Ocean’s Twelve‘ opens next week, is no longer interested in reviving the ‘Police Academy’ series and will instead focus his energy on his ‘Oh, God!’ remake starring Ellen DeGeneres. ‘I made the first one in 1976, and I’ve been trying to figure out how to do another one since then…And then Ellen just came to me and said, ‘I’d play God if you would take a chance and do that.’ I said, ‘Take a chance? That’s the best idea I’ve heard! Let’s go for it.’" Somewhere Michael Winslow is making a sad (yet oddly funny) sound with his mouth.
