Every time Hollywood decides to reboot, a kitten dies.

Please, someone think of the kittens!

You'd still need a good Drebin although I can see Elba pulling off the Nordberg role.

By doing that, you've in essence switched Norburg and Frank's roles. In fact, no one should be the absent minded idiot. What makes The Naked Gun movies brilliant is that literally everyone is playing it 100 % straight, despite the absurd things that they are saying, doing and are happening around them.

Had it been a straight sequel with Leslie Nielsen, I think a running gag in the movie would have been that every time Nordberg is on screen, he's played everytime by a different actor.

Every time I see that there is a new post in this thread, I pray it's because they've cancelled this project.

Josh Brolin would've fit better than Ed Helms, I think.

Yeah he was great as younger K in Men In Black 3 who's humor in the movie was similar to what you would expect from Frank Drebin.

He's already mimicked Tommy Lee Jones' Agent K, not sure he'd want to try to be Nielson's Drebin too.

I was just trying to think of a non-comedian for the role.

I watched the original the other night and it's still fantastic. There's only a couple of references to the time period in which it was film, other than that it stands up to this day. The issue with most parody movies these days is they are very much about what's hip at the time, stuff which gets forgotten soon after.

I'd go with the other LN - Liam Neeson.

That and the movies or events they're spoofing (often terribly) are movies that might not be relevant only a few years later. Some of them require you to have been alive and aware of the events at the time they're released.

Others can get away with making subtle references to events that don't require intimate knowledge of the era.

Neeson doesn't look goofy enough though. Now Arnold Schwarzenegger as Frank Drebin would be hysterical.
