CraveOnline chatted with co-scribe Robert Ben Garant who’ll be responsible for THE NAKED GUN which has Ed Helms set to star and Garant said the following..
“Right now we’re calling it ‘Episode IV – A New Hope,'”
“That will change, but that’s the working title… Our take is that Ed Helms is Frank Drebin, no relation. That’s how he introduces himself.”
“We are trying to reinvent the world,”
“because that world was very ‘Dragnet,’ but we’re trying to fit in 100 jokes a page… It’s going to be a lot of fun. We’re very much embracing the style.”
So it sounds like it’s one of those reboots that don’t necessarily completely replace the original, they just simply allow the original to kind of co-exist in their universe.
Ed Helms will play Detective Frank Drebin, (but no relation to Leslie Nielsen’s iconic character) in Paramount’s THE NAKED GUN Franchise reboot which will be scripted by Night At The Museum team, Thomas Lennon and Robert Ben Garant.
