In what may be the best news of all time, a new NAKED GUN film is in the works. The project is currently called THE NAKED GUN: WHAT 4? THE RHYTHM OF EVIL.
Aint-it-Cool has a review of the script. Here’s a snippet.
An ambitious Commissioner decides the only way to save the city is to reactivate the long inactive Police Squad, a division with a reputation similar to “The Untouchables,” and calls a retired Frank Drebin for guidance. Drebin initially thinks he’s being called back to active duty. He’s excited: “I can still do everything I did thirty years ago… just slower and with more mistakes,” but instead gets persuaded to name a successor. Throughout, Drebin is depicted like Obi Wan and even offers some early voice over narration but has to stop because the entire city can hear it.
I have a feeling OJ Simpson will not be reprising his role as Lt. Nordberg.
