New Line is looking to revive its once-sturdy "Police Academy" franchise with Keegan Michael Key and Jordan Peele in talks to produce the reboot.
The comedians, who star in their eponymous Comedy Central sketch show, would produce with franchise creator Paul Maslansky.
New Line released seven "Police Academy" films between 1984 and 1994. Steve Guttenberg starred in the first four, along with Bubba Smith, Michael Winslow, David Graf and Bobcat Goldthwait.
Key and Peele began on "MadTV." They recently signed to appear in four episodes of FX's TV series adaptation of "Fargo."
The duo is repped by UTA and Principato-Young.
News was first reported by The Tracking Board.
