Steve Guttenberg is making a return to comedy in an “ultra-low-budget” European time-travel film called ‘Stuck!’. Not only that, but the film reunites Guttenberg with his ‘Police Academy’ costar Leslie Easterbrook, who played the statuesque Sgt. Callahan. It may not sound like the most auspicious return, but fans may embrace the idea of seeing Guttenberg back in a comedy film. Following its European release, ‘Stuck!’ will reportedly be released on digital in the US. Directed by Hungarian filmmakers Martin Csaba and Kala Czupi, ‘Stuck!’ was filmed over the course of nine days in Los Angeles. The film also stars Tom Hankssssssssss’… brother, Jim Hanks.
Guttenberg will play Dr. Laundauer, one of a group of scientists who are working on mastering time travel. They discover a time-travel serum, after realizing that eating gluten has been what has held humans back from traveling through time in the past.
“The film takes place over the course of one day, when one of the scientists realizes that her gluten-free diet allows her to time-travel. Of course, as is often the case with time-travel, it causes more problems than it fixes and the cast of Stuck! is quickly thrown into chaos.”
Guttenberg was practically a household name in the 1980s, starring in such classics as the ‘Police Academy’ series, ‘Diner’, ‘Cocoon’ (and its sequel ‘Cocoon: The Return’), ‘Short Circuit’, and ‘3 Men and a Baby’, plus its sequel ‘3 Men and a Little Lady’. He would later star on ‘Veronica Mars’ and ‘Ballers’ and made appearances on such shows as ‘Community’ and ‘The Mysteries of Laura’ and in low-budget TV movies like ‘Sharknado 4: The 4th Awakens’, ‘Lavalantula’ and its follow-up ‘2 Lava 2 Lantula’.
If ‘Stuck!’ doesn’t sound like your idea of a good time, last fall, Guttenberg announced that a new ‘Police Academy’ movie was in the works. Of course, Guttenberg, Easterberg and their one-time costars are a little old to be attending an academy of any sort, but for fans of the original franchise, this may be a welcome stroll down memory lane.
