Universal Is Remaking ‘Kindergarten Cop’ With A Possible TV Series To Follow

06.12.15 4 years ago 6 Comments

2015 is becoming the year we revisit classic Arnold Schwarzenegger movies. Terminator Genisys hits theaters next month and a new Conan movie is in development. Joining the bandwagon, kinda, is Ivan Reitman’s Kindergarten Cop.

Universal’s 1440 division — which specializes in both direct-to-video sequels and remakes of old movies — is eyeing a remake of the 1990 film for a possible home video release. If all goes according to plan, Showbiz 411 reports the remake could potentially lead into a new TV series.

Here’s the movie’s synopsis from the folks at /Film:

The new film pairs the protagonist with an Indian sidekick named Sanjit. They’re looking for a flash drive stolen from the Federal Witness Protection Program, which has somehow made its way to — you guessed it — a kindergarten classroom. Unnamed Leading Man Type and Sanjit’s adventures also involve a beautiful teacher who takes a shine to our hero, and a bunch of Albanian bad guys.

The remake was written by David H. Steinberg (American Pie 2) and will be directed by Don Michael Paul (Jarhead 2: Field of Fire). Currently, no casting decisions have been made but it’s reported the filmmakers are looking for TV stars to fill the roles to further help cross-over potential.

And in case you’re curious, Kindergarten Cop may be Arnold Schwarzenegger’s favorite film from his career but he will not be returning to the project. Obviously.
