Steve Guttenberg, who starred in the Police Academy movies, has confirmed that another sequel is in the pipeline.
Guttenberg, who played wisecracking Officer Carey Mahoney, revealed the plans in a Twitter conversation with a fan.

It would be the eighth film in the cop comedy series, which saw seven films released in quick succession from 1984 to 1994.
The first was a raunchy R-rated comedy, with Guttenberg among a ragtag group of recruits who attend the academy of Commandant Eric Lassard, played by the late George Gaynes.
It made a star of Guttenberg, along with the likes of Kim Cattrall, Bobcat Goldthwait, and Michael Winslow, who played beatboxing recruit Jones.
It also signaled the beginning of a hot streak for Guttenberg, who went on to star in hits like Three Men and a Baby, Short Circuit, and Cocoon.
Later films in the Police Academy series had a softer tone, however, aiming at a more PG-oriented audience, which resulted in diminishing returns.
The final movie, Police Academy: Mission to Moscow, was a box office disaster, making just $126,000 in the U.S.
By that point, only Winslow’s Jones, Gaynes’s Lassard, the late David Graf’s gun-nut Tackleberry, and G.W. Bailey’s Captain Harris remained of the original cast.
