Ben Garant talks about the update of the franchise…
Speaking to CraveOnline, co-screenwriter of the upcoming reboot of The Naked Gun reboot, Ben Garant, said that the project will more of a remake than sequel.
Garant stated, "Right now we're calling it 'Episode IV – A New Hope.' That will change, but that's the working title... Our take is that Ed Helms is Frank Drebin, no relation. That's how he introduces himself."
He added, "We are trying to reinvent the world because that world was very 'Dragnet,' but we're trying to fit in 100 jokes a page... It's going to be a lot of fun. We're very much embracing the style."
Garant is co-writing the film with his creative partner Thomas Lennon. Ed Helms is set to star in the film.
