Entertainment Weekly confirms that New Line Cinema has hired Scott Zabielski - best known for helming episode of Comedy Central's Tosh.0 - to direct the comedy, which still lacks a cast and a release date. Zabielski is actually a reserve police officer in Hollywood.

The first Police Academy hit theaters in 1984. It went on to spawn six sequels.
