'T.J. Hooker' remake coming to the big screen

AdrianZmed_TJHooker Latest sad news: '80s television cop show template T.J. Hooker is now officially set for a big-screen Hollywood remake. To answer the very first question you're thinking: No, we don't yet know if William Shatner, Adrian Zmed or Heather Locklear will star or even make appearances in it.

No casting decisions have been made, says Variety.com, but series creator Rick Husky will be one of the movie's producers. Chuck Russell (The Scorpion King, The Mask) is the first choice for director.

According to Variety, the movie will focus on the relationship between Hooker and his father. No, that doesn't sound boring at all!

Here's another mixed omen: Co-producing with Husky are David Foster and Ryan Heppe, who are also handling the remake of Short Circuit. (Because WALL-E wasn't enough of a ripoff? Or maybe they're just big Steve Guttenberg fans. Who isn't?)

BY THE WAY ... If you are a Shatner fan and love Sci-Fi flicks, you need to see the 1998 movie Free Enterprise, in which Shatner plays himself. No, it's not an '80s film, but I think you'll love it anyway. Plus, it gives me a chance to salvage a top 5 list out of this blog item.

TOP 5 SHATNER LINES FROM FREE ENTERPRISE:

5. "My boy, that was a TV show. I used a stunt double. I always use a stunt double. Except in love scenes. I insist on doing those myself."

4. "You know. I have an idea for a movie. It's a musical based on Julius Caesar. I'd play all the parts. Except for Calpurnia. I was thinking Sharon Stone for that."

3. "Logic is the other guy's schtick."

2. "Guys, you gotta mix a little reality in with your imagination to achieve happiness in your life. And you've gotta overcome your programming - which in your case is a 30-year-old television show."

1. "I'm one of the top 10 imaginary friends kids have. Just behind John Travolta, Reggie Jackson, and Farrah Fawcett-Majors."
