Ed Helms Set To Star In Naked Gun Reboot!

ed helms naked gun

Ladies and gentlemen, may we present to you the new Detective Frank Drebin!

The Hangover’s Ed Helms will try his best to fill the enormous shoes left behind by Leslie Nielsen, who originated the role in the Naked Gun film trilogy!

The crime comedies from the 80s and 90s featured some of the driest, most HIGHlarious jokes around, so we think Ed might be the perfect cop for this new case!

Mr. Nielsen, who many would Shirley surely recognize from his role in Airplane!, sadly passed away in 2010. And while he isn’t around to give Helms his blessing, we’ve got to assume he’d approve of handing over his badge to the next generation!

We can’t wait to see what this reboot will be about! Maybe it’ll just be a classic story of boy finds girl, boy loses girl, girl finds boy, boy forgets girl, boy remembers girl, girls dies in a tragic blimp accident over the Orange Bowl on New Year's Day….

Will Leslie Nielsen's Final Film Ever Get Released?

Filed under: Film FlickersSad SadBusiness Blitz

final leslie nielsen film may never get released

The last project Leslie Nielsen worked on was a small budget animated film, but we may never get a chance to see it.

After Leslie finished work on the film, the producers couldn't afford the costs of final animation.

According to director Bryan Waterman, Leslie finished his voice work over a year ago, yet there is still a lot to be done before the movie could possibly be released.

Currently, the project is taking donations, and anybody who contributes will receive a "special thanks" credit at the end of the film.

At the same time, Waterman is searching for investors.

He has said that he'll add a dedication to Leslie Nielsen if the film ever gets finished.

We hope they're able to get the financing to finish it! Would be nice to hear Leslie's voice one last time aside from re-watching Airplane A LOT, and we think including a dedication is a very sweet gesture.

Do U think Leslie Nielsen's final film will ever see the light of day?
