Hey look! It's Enrico Pallazzo! Ed Helms attached to new 'Naked Gun' movie
By Jeff Labrecque
As Variety initially reported this morning, The Hangovers Ed Helms is attached to the project, stepping into the sometimes-wrong, but never-in-doubt shoes of dimwitted cop Frank Drebin.
Jim Abrahams, David Zucker, and Jerry Zucker, who created Police Squad!, the short-lived TV series that starred Nielsen as Drebin and inspired the three successful Naked Gun comedies, are not involved with the new movie. Instead, Reno 911! creators Thomas Lennon and Robert Ben Garant are working on the script (which makes sense since they appreciate the importance of an exclamation point in a title.) The pair recently wrote Night at the Museum 3 for Fox.

Abrahams, Zucker, and Zucker have something up their sleeve!
Will O.J. be in it?
Hollywood has completely run out of ideas.
Another Naked Gun movie? Shirley you just!
Wait - I blew the punchline, didn't I? (sobbing)
The older two are at the grandparents, the baby has bottles lined up in the fridge, so mommy is having some Pinot Grigio. Forgive my slip up!
Lol! See my post #7.
Another good movie that Ed Helms was good in was “Cedar Rapids.” Absolutely hilarious.
I get the feeling that this will turn out like the reboot of the Pink Panther.
Ah don’t worry about it... cigarette?
All right, all right!
Ed Helms seems to be in a lot of losers...
Bruce Campbell would be a great Frank Debbin!
“A touch of cloth” is a British take on “Police Squad”. It’s so-so, the British dry humor makes an interesting combination.
No avalanches of jokes though- and you need that for that type of show.
If they want to remake the film , just reshoot all of OJ Simpson's scenes with another actor.
Well, at least there will be no crying game joke.
Nordberg deserves better than Tyler Perry.
I laughed so hard at some of those that I may have stopped breathing a few times.
Gadzooks, Imp-- The casting of this film... was a nightmare!
Clooney only came on board if Tyler got the Nordberg and played it in drag. Plus Geogre demanded Matt Damon play Ted Olson and have Ben Affleck in a cameo as his lab assistant.
Streep demanded no accent whatsoever for her character and that Johnny Depp play her son yet his film schedule/divorce-dating played havoc with getting his scenes filmed on time and budget. He originally wanted to play Rocco as a bald blonde, having never played one before, but he was convinced to use his own hair as he had never used it before either.
Scarlett Johansson agreed to the Tanya Peters role only if the 'Crying Game' joke was cut and all nudity be gratuitous.
Taylor Swift campaigned for the Jane role just because she has Daddy Issues and has always wanted to make out with a robot to be the basis for her new song "Lips of Metal Don't Leave Me Cold." Plus she wants to show off her beaver to gain fans in the PETA movement.
However, we did have some real troupers in the cast. Pia Zadora, James Earl Jones and Olympia Dukakis recreated their roles with the same verve and spirit as the originals--
"That's Phil Donabot... throwing up in a tuba."
And, like in the original film, Pia... did her own stunts.
Me? All Abrahams, Zucker, and Zucker had to do was meet... my price.
Pia’s probation officer let her leave Nevada? That was nice of him.
Nope, we shot her dance set... at the MGM Grand.
