From a personal point of view, I think it sucks. Ok, I can understand the studios wanting to put a name on the poster, but at the cost of Tom Selleck’s last big screen hope? Come On! According to the imdb,Selleck won’t be reprising his role as “Magnum P.I” for the film version – that honour will go to George Clooney.

“Pals of the actor say Clooney is desperate to take on the role made famous on the small screen by Tom Selleck between 1980 and 1988. They claim the mustachioed Magnum completes a "holy trinity" of roles Clooney has secretly coveted; "He’s wanted to play three characters since he started acting – Danny Ocean in Ocean’s Eleven, Hannibal in the A-Team and Magnum. He’s had the A-Team movie in the works for a while now, so he’s been chasing this one really hard." Hollywood sources say the film, which will begin shooting next year, will feature the brand new $800,000 Ferrari Enzo sports car in place of Magnum’s classic Ferrari 308 Gts. But the identities of who will play Magnum’s side-kicks Theodore ‘TC’ Calvin, Orville ‘Rick’ Wright and Jonathan Quayle Higgins III – played by Roger E Mosley, Larry Manetti and John Hillerman in the TV original – are being kept top secret.”

Those “Selleck-Magnum” fans better start those letters of protest!
