If you're not old enough Naked Gun may just be a strange name for a comedy movie. For everyone else the Naked Gun series helped make Leslie Nielsen a household name and helped set the standard for spoof movies. Paramount is now looking to reboot the comedy series (I guess no longer spoofing anything?) with Ed Helms, best known for his role on The Office and in the Hangover series, will be taking over as Nielsen's character. The film will be written by Thomas Lennon and R. Ben Garant, who also wrote Reno 911 and Night At The Museum, which aren't bad choices for this kind of comedy.
I wonder if this kind of comedy can play anymore or if the whole Naked Gun motif will need upgrading and modernization. The jokes tended to lean towards goofball and I'm not sure if that slapstick style still holds up in our modern day. I guess as long as they get OJ Simpson to somehow make an appearance, he was a character in the original series, then they're heading in the right direction.
