Um, with Kevin Hart as Rick?

Nothing against The Rock, but please no.

I like The Rock and his series Ballers on HBO but come on. And Kevin Hart, can he appear in any more projects in any given year!

I wish Hollywood did these remakes to appeal to existing fans of the original material. But it seems like they wait until no one is looking, and subvert the original into something that offends the original fans, and is made for another demographic. (I'm looking at you, Ghostbusters)

I can only assume it stems from a lack of original ideas and a lazy way to make a buck, while trying to be trendy and cool looking ("Look! I remade Citizen Kane with Jaden Smith as Kane!!" or "I'm remaking "Bonanza" with an all transgender cast!")

Count me out.

Count me out too. It has been 28 years since Magnum PI was on. We survived without having a reunion movie and we will all survive just fine without some cheesy re-make. Let MPI rest in peace...or in reruns.

I like Dwayne Johnson but Magnum PI ........... " This is outrageous ! ........ outrageous ! :higgins:

This is as ridiculous as suggesting he be the next James Bond.

If Hart and Dwayne want to do something together why not remake "Twins" :lol: Dwayne Johnson takes Swartzenneger's role and Kevin Hart takes De Vito's.

Man, the folks in creative control just don't get anything about being creative. Sounds like the execs are just looking to bank on the flash of a title like Magnum PI and on the nickname "The Rock." Doubt many of them have ever watched more than the opening credits of Magnum PI. Like in just about every anymore, I guess cheap and easy rules the day. What a terrible idea for Magnum.

Looks like this is going to be a version of the
Starsky and Hutch movie. I believe I'll pass on this one.
