Film Adaptation of 'T. J. Hooker' In the Works


The producers and script writers for the film adaptation of TV series "T. J. Hooker" have been found, but not the cast.

Variety is reporting that "T. J. Hooker," the police drama television program famous in the 80s, will be made into big screen movie. While there have been no actors joining the cast of the adaptation just yet, several people have been on board to work on the installment.

The likes of David Foster, Ryan Heppe and series creator Rick Husky have all been tapped to produce "T.J. Hooker" film. The threesome will be working together with Brent Maddock and S.S. Wilson, both of whom will pen the script. Chuck Russell, who is best known for directing hit movies "The Mask" and "The Scorpion King," is still in talks to direct. Further details of the project, meanwhile, are kept under wrap.

"T. J. Hooker" TV series was run from March 1982 to May 1986. Its story centered on the relationship between the title character, played by actor William Shatner, and his father. Adrian Zmed, Heather Locklear, Richard Herd, and James Darren were among the main cast.

"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," so said Heppe of adapting the series into movie.
