Because U Demanded It: James Gunn To Reboot Starsky & Hutch

At long last, the wait is over. Starsky & Hutch is finally coming back (again) under the executive producership of Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn.

Ever since the 2004 reboot of Starsky & Hutch starring Ben Stiller, Owen Wilson, and Snoop Dogg, moviegoers everywhere have been asking the question: when will someone reboot this 1970s TV franchise again. Well, wonder no longer, moviegoers. The answer to your question is "now," and the man you have to thank is James Gunn.

Gunn will executive produce and write the show, the latter with his brother Sean Gunn and their cousin Mark Gunn, plus any additional Gunn family members that need a job when the time comes, according to a report from Variety. The production follows in a long tradition not only of rebooted 1970s TV series, but at this point, also of reboots specifically of Starsky & Hutch.

There's no details yet on who might star, but can we suggest Kate McKinnon and Aidy Bryant for what's sure to be a tongue-in-cheek take on the buddy cop action property? Let us know what you think in the comments, and if we're feeling charitable, we'll read them.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
