Stay with this story for the frightening clue that the TJ Hooker movie is actually going to star William Shatner. It’s worth it for the shudder factor.
Variety have named Chuck Russell as the director out in the lead for the TJ Hooker gig. The screenplay is being written by Brent Maddock and SS Wilson, who previously took up pens for Tremors, Short Circuit and Ghost Dad. While the 80s TV series was a straight up cop action drama, his movie is being pegged as a comedy, perhaps inevitably.
