T.J. Hooker is heading back to the streets

Posted by LiveFor on July 6, 2009

We’ve had Starsky & Hutch, Star Trek and The A-Team is in the works but now another programme from our youth is heading towards the big screen.

Chuck Russell (The Scorpion King, The Mask) is in talks to direct T.J. Hooker, an action comedy based on the 1982 TV series, with David Foster, Ryan Heppe and series creator Rick Husky set to produce.

According to Variety, the writing team of Brent Maddock and S.S. Wilson will script the story, which focuses on the relationship between the title character and his father.

No actors have been cast yet for the feature.

The TV series, produced by Aaron Spelling, debuted in 1982 on ABC and ran for five seasons, the last on CBS. William Shatner starred as a no-nonsense patrol sergeant, with Adrian Zmed, Heather Locklear, Richard Herd and James Darren as co-stars.

“The series was the poster child for cop TV shows in the 1980s with great stunts, so we think there’s a fun movie to be made from it,”
Heppe said.

I can’t say whether I was a big fan of Hooker. It was one of those shows I remember as a kid, but could take it or leave it.

How do you feel about a T.J. Hooker film? Who could play T.J.? Chris Pine maybe.

I’m holding out for a Quantum Leap film.
