Universal, also, digs the concept and, after a decade of hemming and hawing and almost casting Michael Douglas, they've hired Will Smith to star in their movie version. (Wow, that was a near thing - Michael Douglas doing anything remotely cool is less and less convincing. Plus, I still get a kick out of race-blind casting. So sue me.) The script is currently being revamped by David Elliot and Paul Lovett, who reportedly have the "fresh take" that has finally brought the movie to the forefront of Universal's schedule. Hopefully that take involves a sense of humor and lightness, as opposed to a need to turn the series into another all action, all the time Smith flick.
