PI for the Grazer guy?

09.24.2003

Ahhhhh, the memories... I vividly recall sneaking out of my room as a kid, creeping slowly down the hallway (to avoid creaks in the floor) and hiding under an end-table in our living room, where from I had a perfect vantage point to gaze at all the pretty ladies on all of the TV shows I wasn't supposed to be watching, all the while able to remain undetected by the parental units. Heh, heh, those were the days... until I got caught, that is. And do I remember how I got caught? Of course I do... It was all Tom Selleck's fault! I only say that because Magnum P.I. was on during that fateful and defining moment, but I don't harbor any hard feelings towards you, Tom (yes I do! Magnum got shot in that episode and it made me jerk up and hit my head on the underside of the table!). That was quite a (non) story just to get to the wacky news that Ron Howard's Imagine Entertainment partner - and frequent producer of his films - Brian Grazer, along with Universal Pictures, have optioned the right to turn the 80's Selleck starrer into a feature film. Grazer will develop the film with series originator Donald Bellisario and the two have already hired AUSTIN POWERS 2 & 3 screenwriter, Michael McCullers, to pen the script. Now the question is: "Who will be the first to make it to the Box Office, Magnum's Ferrari 308 GTS or Bo and Luke Duke's General Lee?"

  • Tom Selleck was originally cast to play Henry "Indiana" Jones in RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK, but had to drop out because of commitments to start filming the first season of Magnum P.I. - How different would the Indy franchise have been if Selleck was the one wearing the fedora?
  • Until his death in 1985, Orson Wells provided the voice of Thomas Magnum's employer, Robin Masters (who owned the mansion in which the mustachioed one resided).
