"Naked Gun" Reboot Will Not Be a Spoof Comedy

Posted: March 13th, 2015 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"Naked Gun" Reboot Will Not Be a Spoof ComedySubmit Comment
We already know that there's reboot of the "Naked Gun" franchise in the works that will star Ed Helms (The Hangover, "The Office"). And now comes word from David Zucker, director of the original film, that the reboot will be very different from his movies.

"It won't be like the 'Naked Gun' that I did. It may be good, but it won't be that kind of movie. They're going to use the title," he explained. "They asked me if I wanted to produce. They're nice people, but they don't want to do that style of spoof that I do. I would want somebody who had never been in an comedy. Ed Helms is very well known for three of the biggest comedies ever. I understand why Paramount is doing what they're doing. If my name was on it, I would be making all sorts of suggestions and trying to change it, and it would be frustrating."

One possible reason why the studio has no interest in making the new "Naked Gun" a spoof movie is because the spoof genre is no longer profitable. And Zucker agrees. "I produced 'Scary Movie 5,' [and] that was so watered-down that [it] contributed to ruining the genre, as did all the Friedberg and Seltzer movies [such as 'Date Movie,' 'Epic Movie,' and 'Meet the Spartans']. [Parody] has come on hard times. They're not being done well."

Never thought Leslie was anything more than mildly amusing, although I'm sure "some people" will beg to differ, since that's their recycled schtick, but without Leslie's involvement, why bother? Sounds like blasphemy to me.

And you just know they'll hire Will Ferrell for the lead role.

Could you write a more f*cked up, convoluted and obfuscated paragraph, dude?

..."three of the biggest comedies ever"
Hangover 3 is not a Big comedy -it was pure garbage !
First two were pretty good but nothing like the first two Drebin movies(classics).
That being said, David Zucker has been involved in a sh*tload of crappy spoof flicks, and the genre has been dead for many years, so who knows what this will turn out to be ??

Once again, "Minkowski", someone who claims to do research and is on top of things is unaware that:

1: Leslie Nielsen died in Nov 2010 at age 84 so his involvement in this reboot is obviously impossible.

2: Ed Helms was cast as Frank Drebin nearly a year ago when this reboot was announced.

So again, this blatant idiocy from this "Minkowski" charlatan is further proof that they are not the original minkowski.
