I know Hollywood isn’t much into remakes these days. Today’s studio exec is all about taking chances on talent and story rather than cashing in on nostalgia and betting on a safe buck. I know this, you know this – I’m preaching to the choir.
But, for the sake of argument, let’s say they weren’t, and remakes of 80’s TV properties were the hottest thing around.
Fellow Mogul Hothumblepie recently posted her interest in seeing Magnum P.I.’s pistol-packin man-dukes gracing our cinemaplexes, although she may not have used those exact words.
Regardless, let’s say that were to happen…what would be the chances of actually getting our boy Tom Selleck back in his Hawaiian duds for some good old-fashioned private dick work??
Furthermore, if execs followed their cold, black hearts and did the usual thing, who would be our new Thomas Magnum? Who would you want to see don the famous stache with a side order of chest hair?
