MIAMI – Don Johnson and Steve Guttenberg are to team up for the best mash up movie of the 80s EVER: Police Academy: Assignment Miami Vice.

Director, Alan Parker, said that the film will partly be a remake of Police Academy 5: Assignment Miami Beach ‘but as we had Don interested we changed the script so we could bring in his character of Detective James Crockett.’
A short synopsis issued by the studio reads:

When Officer Carey Mahoney (Steve Guttenberg), now a teacher at the famous Police Academy takes his rambunctious and hilarious misfit students on a field trip to Miami, he was hoping for a week of bikini clad fun, but instead he ended up gatecrashing Detective Crockett’s (TV’s Don Johnson) toughest assignment yet. And when a bunch of Chinese  North Korean terrorists kidnap Crockett it is up to Mahoney and the gang of surprisingly old students to rescue him and foil a plot to blow up something inexpensive.

Johnson said he was delighted to be working with the director of Midnight Express on such potentially award worthy material and Gu
ttenberg said he was delighted to be working. Guttenberg expanded:

When I first heard about the project I thought oh no. Because I had turned down the original Miami Police Academy movie thinking basically I’d done four and it was time to get into some serious acting. Little did I know of the wasteland that my career was to become.   

Parker revealed also that he wanted Philip Michael Thomas to return as Tubbs, Crockett’s erstwhile partner, but the actor turned down the role citing scheduling problems with his infomercial commitments. 

Police Academy: Assignment Miami Vice will be released in 2017.


What are we looking at?

HOLLYWOOD – Twenty years since the release of Michael Mann’s rip-roaring bodice busting scalp scalping run around fest The Last of the Mohicans, Michael Mann has revealed he intends to start filming a sequel early next year, provisionally entitled, Actually We’ve Found Some More Mohicans. The film will star Daniel Day-Lewis, who will have won another Oscar by then, as Hawkeye, not the hilarious army doctor who spent the Korean war quipping and lusting after Hot Lips, but someone totally different.

Speaking from his loft in New York, Mann screeched like an American eagle: ‘I was always really down on the end of our film, because it was such a bummer you know. The last of the Mohicans, sounds so final, but that was like the Fenimore Cooper novel. But then I got to thinking what if there were some other Mohicans who – I don’t know – had been hiding? What then?’
The film will also star Madeline Stowe who has already quit her job at JC Penneys in order to prepare for the role.
‘I am always looking for new challenges, to do something totally new and original,’ said the Miami Vice director. The plot will involve Curly, Moe and ChingaChuck, the three remaining Mohicans and the scrapes they get into when they are mistaken for drug smugglers by the mafia. Only with the help of Hawkeye and a lot of luck are they going to get out of this scrape.

Actually We’ve Found Some More Mohicans will be released in 2014.
