Now, finally, the movie is coming. Legendary Pictures (a newish, WB-based company that has a first-look deal with the studio) recently optioned a screenplay written by Spielman himself, along with series writer Howard Friedlander, and has revealed that the film's content will be very familiar to fans of the series: According to a Legendary exec, the movie will "explore the events on which the TV show was based and the origins of the main characters." Though there's no information available on how soon this might be in theaters, casting is bound to cause a minor internet frenzy -- I can't wait for the "WHAT?! That guy can't hold David Carradine's proverbial jock!" forum posts.
