Exclusive: Third ‘Stakeout’ Movie In The Works


I had a chat with someone I have exchanged screenplays with at the weekend, many of which I wouldn’t publicly admit to possessing.  The guy I can vouch for and to be honest, he has done more for me than I’ve done for him.  Anyway he mentioned that a third ‘Stakeout’ movie is in the works.

Apparently the movie is ready to go with a screenplay that is ‘way funnier than it has any right to be’, with a view to bringing back Richard Dreyfuss and Emilio Estevez as Chris Lecce and Bill Reimers respectively.  You might notice I did not use the term detectives Chris Lecce and Bill Reimers, that’s because supposedly neither are employed as police officers any longer.

Having disgraced themselves and lost their jobs, Lecce and Reimers now operated as private eyes and, put on a routine stalking case, find themselves on the trail of something big.  And that’s pretty much all I have to reveal.

Apparently Disney are high on the screenplay but nervous on the idea of bringing back Dreyfuss and Estevez and that it could ultimately be repackaged as something else with a younger cast.  22 years ago the second movie was panned and was a financial bomb, but in my opinion, it was kinda funny.
