The idea of making a movie about Magnum P.I. exists since 2006 but until now thing intention is resisted by Hollywood. The script is said to be ready for now and given to Matthew McConaughey to be read.
However the actor for the main role has not been appointed yet. Among the challengers are Ben Affleck, George Clooney and Vince Vaughn. Of course the fans of the show would be happy to see original Magnum on their screens but unfortunately Mr. Selleck considers the whole idea to be stupid and refuses from taking part in it. His refusal does not coincide with the David Hasselhoff Theory of Celebrity Comebacks, according to which an actor never allows an old role to die.
