    Detective Frank Drebin is coming back with Ed Helms on board to portray Leslie Nielsen’s character in Paramount’s reboot of “The Naked Gun” comedy franchise.

    The studio has tapped the scripting team of Thomas Lennon and R. Ben Garant — best known for the “Night at the Museum” and “Reno 911″ franchises, to write the screenplay as a new spin on the Drebin character.

    Helms starred in “The Hangover” trilogy and “We’re the Millers” and recently recently wrapped “Stretch” opposite Chris Pine and Patrick Wilson. He stars in the romcom parody “They Came Together,” which will premiere at Sundance, opposite Paul Rudd and Amy Poehler.

    Paramount released “The Naked Gun: From the Files of Police Squad!” in 1988 with Nielsen battling Ricardo Montalban’s character plotting to assassinate Queen Elizabeth II at a baseball game in Los Angeles. Sequels “The Naked Gun 2½: The Smell of Fear” and “Naked Gun 33⅓: The Final Insult” followed in 1991 and 1994; the three films made $275 million.

      They should've left Naked Gun alone!

        This is going to be nothing short of a huge disaster.

        First of all, Ed Helms is the anti-funny. He's horrible in everything he's in.

        Second, Leslie Neilson made those original movies. Ed Helms doesn't come remotely close to having the talent he had.

          Outside of Hollywood being scared of any original ideas these days, why is this movie being made? Did anybody honestly ever say "Gee ya know what'd be great? If they made a Naked Gun movie, only with somebody who isn't Leslie Nielsen."? This one has crap written allover it.

            Leslie wouldn't have approved of this.

              I don't Andy Bernard would make a good match for Leslie. Seriously,

                    Well I didn't see this coming. It will be okay. Nothing can be worse than the reboot of Robocop.

                      Yeah I recently saw the new Robocop, and it sucked.

                        The guys in Hollywood don't care what we want or don't want. They're gonna do what they please.
