If they have the balls they should rehire OJ.

"There are people who can [play it straight, like Liam Nielsen], and they're not famous. You wouldn't know who they were. But I know actors who can do it."

That's some crackerjack proofreading if I've ever seen it.

All the Scary Movie sendups and Movie 43 only bring into sharp relief that those movies were a lot more clever than they look. And if you don't have the chops, do not attempt.

I might could see the new Frank Drebin being played by Liam Neeson (with a hairpiece similar to Leslie Nielsen's hair).

But I think they need to forego this and focus on rebooting Spider-Man or something...

This. It's been, what, six -- maybe seven -- hours since they've rebooted Spider-Man? Clearly overdue.

Well, ZAZ wrote and directed Airplane, Police Squad, and Naked Gun, so does it really matter?

Also, No. Just No, David Zucker. You enjoy your piles of money and leave well enough alone.

i'm leaning more toward "that is the joke". it is the same actor (nielsen) and the same movie makers (zucker/abrams), and the same "spoof" genre

Especially since Scary movie 3 was done by Zucker, and it was awful (The studio stole the franchise from they Wayans brothers after the second one).  Zucker by himself isn;t good, he need the other Zucker and Abrams in order to shine.

According to wikipedia:"In 2008, he was found guilty and sentenced to 33 years' imprisonment, with a minimum of nine years without parole.". But that doesn't mean they can't film his parts in prison. I still think he will be a viable addition to the cast.

It is time for "Hollywood" to come up with new ideas that don't suck.

\not holding out much hope for that.

And this:
www.cultreviews.com

The zany parody movie that asks the question: why does Michael Moore hate America? Because obviously Michael Moore hates America, because he's making all of those movies that ask questions.

Zucker has fallen into the David Mamet/Dennis Miller vortex of suck that happens when talented individuals turn conservative. If he were to do another Naked Gun, I'm sure it would be full of 'subtle' 'humor' against liberals.

No, it's not.  And don't call me Shirley.

"There's room for a 'Naked Gun' style. A bumbling guy in a position where he's respected. ... I want to do the character, but not the specific [job]. Not 'Naked Gun.'"

i would be okay with this.  it would be great to see more movies with the kind of straight-faced absurdity that made naked gun and airplane so brilliant.  i love that kind of humor.  if zucker could make a new movie in that style i would love to see it.
 
2013-04-11 09:10:39 AM
The only person I can think of that can conceivably approach Neilsen's Drebin right now is Ryan Stiles, but he's no where near the dramatic actor Neilsen was.

Granted, Ed O'Neill probably could pull it off as well and actually has the dramatic chops and impeccable comic timing of Neilsen, but he's a bit old now for the role I'd think.

so i was wrong, right?

anywho, yes they could film in prison

It works for Matt Stone and Trey Parker to hilarious effect.

I had to see the movie a second time to catch the follow-up line.

CSB: My late brother had ALS, and that film was one of the last movies I took him to before he was confined to bed. When Neilsen delivered that line, I was laughing hard and looked over to see my brother was gasping for breath. I put his oxygen mask on for a moment or two. He caught his breath and waved off the mask, saying: "Jeeze, I can't believe he actually said that. That's the funniest line ever." Always wanted to meet Neilsen to thank him for that moment of pure hilarity for my brother. /CSB

A reboot?  What is it?
 
2013-04-11 09:49:51 AM
Surely it is time someone made ZAZ watch their own movies. Sit them down, watch Airplane and Top Secret but then stop them before all the good parts and put on a clip from Scary Movie 3.

/Tell him George Zip said to suck on an exhaust pipe.

It's a completely pointless cash grab that will never live up to the greatness of the original and most fans will deny it even exists, but that's not important right now.

Not to take away from the writing, because there are some great jokes in the Naked Gun series, but Leslie Nielsen IS the reason those movies were so damn funny. Well, the first one is hysterical, the other ones were funny enough.
