The latest Police Academy movie, Police Academy 54, is to be set in Newry Police Station.
The announcement comes as stars of the movie arrive in Newry for filming.
Director Larry Thomson told Newry Spud:
“We’re always looking for new places to set our hilarious movies and we just love Ireland so much that we thought we’d film here. Your villages are so cute. Us guys are going to have a right laugh filming here.”
Production has been delayed by a few days after some of the film set was stolen and used to make a bonfire to keep some Barcroft hoods warm.
“That’s so cute.” added Thomson. “You guys just love that kinda thing right? Newry is sooo crazy. I can’t wait for us to start filming our crazy police antics. This movie is going to be the best Police Academy movie ever.”
