Ok, so it’s not one of Arnie’s classics like Total Recall [you know what, I can’t really remember anything about the remake of that now except for the awesome girl fight!], but I still have a soft spot for Kindergarten Cop, the one where he’s a cop posing as a kindergarten teacher to get closer to a drug baron, nonetheless. I don’t see the point in remaking it but Universal Pictures are going to remake it anyway, though the result won’t be seen in cinemas. Showbiz 411 reports that Universal’s 1440 division, the branch responsible for direct-to-DVD sequels, will produce the remake of Kindergarten Cop with some significant alterations to the story. Schwarzenegger’s replacement will apparently be “a leading man type with an Indian sidekick named Sanjit.” The duo are looking for a missing flash drive from the Federal Witness protection program that has ended up in the kindergarten class. The bad guys are Albanian. We do still have a pretty teacher though.

The director for this eagerly awaited [sarcasm] film is a guy called Don Michael Paul, who apparently made a direct-to-video sequel to the excellent Jarhead entitled Jarhead 2: Field of Fire. The script is by American Pie 2‘s David H. Steinberg, so we’ll get lots of witty comedy there [sarcasm]. And, if it’s well recieved, the film may lead to a Kindergarten Cop television series.

This is all getting so desperate. What’s the betting Twins will be next, now that the sequel announced back in 2012 doesn’t seem to be happening? And please, just leave the stupidly awesome action masterpiece that is Commando alone.

I'm a huge film fan and will watch pretty much any type of film, from Martial Arts to Westerns, from Romances [though I don't really like Romcoms!]] to Historical Epics. Though I most certainly 'have a life', I tend to go to the cinema twice a week! However,ever since I was a kid, sneaking downstairs when my parents had gone to bed to watch old Universal and Hammer horror movies, I've always been especially fascinated by horror, and though I enjoy all types of horror films, those Golden Oldies with people like Boris Karloff and Christopher Lee probably remain my favourites. That's not to say I don't enjoy a bit of blood and gore every now and again though, and am also a huge fan of Italian horror, I just love the style.

  1. I love Kindergarten Cop! I do have a soft spot for most of Arnie’s family movies but this one is high up there. The chemistry between him and Pamela Reed, who also co-starred with him in Junior, absolutely slays me. So funny!
    Needless to say, it won’t be a patch on the original and I do wish they’d stop remaking everything when there’s tremendous writers out there with original ideas.
