Today’s 80s remake bought to you by T.J. Hooker

80’s television series T.J.Hooker is to be remade as a Hollywood action/ comedy movie.

David Foster, Ryan Heppe and series creator Rick Husky producing, and Chuck Russell (“The Scorpion King,” “The Mask”) is in talks to direct, according to Variety. Foster and Heppe have previously produced such gems as Wild Wild West and the Tremor pics.

T.J. Hooker was a Aaron Spelling series starting William Shatner that have a five year television run from 1982. Other starts on the show included Adrian Zmed, Heather Locklear, Richard Herd and James Darren.

Given the success of Star Trek (which also starred William Shatner) maybe it might turn out ok…or maybe not. Here’s betting it’s as bad as the Starsky and Hutch remake.
