:D Best news of the "Magnum P.I" movie project so far :D
I actually think Tom Selleck might do it now. I was sceptic before but this was good news indeed. But i would rather see a couple of good tv-movies than a bigscreenmovie.

I wonder if TS would consider buying some of the rights to the show to make a made for TV movie?

One way to make it happen. I know what you're thinking...

AND from my "read" on Tom Selleck's quotes I think HE REALLY WANTS TO PLAY MAGNUM AGAIN!

I bet if TS and the rest of crew came up with a plot line and the rest of the nine yards that they would not turn him down, because the 80's are hot right now

Guys and girls

I truly believe there are enough Magnum die hard fans like us they should aim to release regular movies, just like the James Bond franchise.

Maybe release the first two movies at the same time. One movie set in the 80’s with the other movie set now.

I want Magnum to last not just be a one off movie then forget it. Really I think it has the potential to be like James Bond a movie every few years.

Well I guess TS would love 2 be Magnum again and he have a idea 4 the screenplay 2.

Quote (time.com):

"... I have to ask you about the Magnum, P.I. movie. 
I know nothing. They haven't asked. They wanted to do one in the '90s. Tom Clancy wanted to write it because he was a big Magnum fan. But they blew it. It would be fun to revisit the guy. The problem with movies about television is they usually spend $100 million on explosions and then make fun of the original show. I'd hate to see that. The fans wouldn't like it.

Could anyone else play you? 
I really don't want anyone else to play me. But would I play me, and they were weren't writing Magnum as a 17-year-old? I'd probably take it on.

Where's Magnum now? 
I know where he is. He went to being a Navy seal. If they do a movie, they should do it when he gets out of the Navy and tries to back to his life in Hawaii. ..."


The Quote is from: http://www.time.com/time/magazine/artic ... 62,00.html

Sort of 'aged' but I'am shure TS aint change his mind:)

So all the other news has dried up, it would be great to see a Magnum PI movie, but it seems with no news the chances are slim for the next few years. Don't get me wrong a TV movie every 12 months or big screen job like the James Bond movies every 5 years would be great, they should keep Magnim PI going a new movie every so often.

Any Magnum movie, TV or Big Screen, without Selleck as Magnum, would be complete blasphemy. I hope one gets made eventually, but we gotta have the real Magnum.

I'm in the severe minority here . . . of course I would LOVE to see Selleck back as Magnum in some way. I'd prefer a series of TV movies which I think would be easier to make and would give us a better chance of seeing more of them.

But . . . I also didn't mind the idea of Matthew McConaughey playing the role. Of all the names bandied about I thought, if the script were right, and that's the most important part, he could pull it off. It wouldn't be Selleck, but I'm kind of resigned to it being a reboot and figured let's get the best possible reboot we can, capturing the feel we all loved of the series.

To me it's like the comic book movies. I've been a comics reader for over 35 years and am a big Iron Man fan. While the first Iron Man movie wasn't spot on regarding the history and continuity of Iron Man, they got the feel right. Robert Downey Jr.'s Tony Stark isn't exactly like the comic book version, but he was a perfect choice and he felt right.

I hope for the same thing with the Magnum reboot.

Yes he does, and that's what's holding up the production. Nobody wants him, but they can't make the film without his approval. I don't think he has any legal claim, but the studio fears any bad publicity if he isn't happy. The reason they don't want him is probably because his agent will demand an exorbitant salary for his client and the movie would have to be the highest grossing film of all time for the studio to make what they feel would be an acceptable profit for them. I suspect that's the reason that Quentin Tarantino has cancelled his plans for making Kill Bill III in 2014. Uma agreed to do the film, but probably only in principal. Her agent no doubt demanded a fortune. Bear in mind, that Tarantino only paid David Carradine $250K for both Kill Bill I & II combined. Read "The Kill Bill Diary," by David Carradine.
