What's that I hear? The infernal remake engines demanding another blood sacrifice? Well, since it's already been fed one '90s action-crime-comedy-caper in the form of Sister Act, we might as well double down with Kindergarten Cop.
Yes, the studio heads over at Universal have decided that Kindergarten Cop, a movie that owed a great deal of success to starring body-builder turned actor turned politician turned back to actor Arnold Schwarzenegger is prime remake material. It is also worthy of note that the film is being headed by Universal's 1440 division, which handles direct-to-DVD titles.
The movie is set to be directed by Don Michael Paul, whose last movie was Sniper: Legacy, the fifth film in a franchise you didn't even know existed. The remake is also set to be written by David H. Steinberg, who wrote American Pie 2.
Plot details are a little scant right now, though we do know that it will star “a leading man type with an Indian sidekick named Sanjit." Yes, they are using the phrase Indian sidekick non-ironically to refer to leading-man-type's partner because they're playing cops, not superheroes. Beyond that, the crime-fighting duo (maybe they are superheroes) will be searching for a missing flashdrive from the Federal Witness Protection program that ends up in a Kindergarten class.
Kindergarten cop has no release date as of yet, and given the production company may end up straight-to-DVD. Stick with us and we'll keep you updated on this terrible idea that I will definitely watch as soon as I can.
