    Rawson Marshall Thurber will write and direct the big screen adaptation of Magnum P.I. for Universal Pictures, reports Variety. Brian Grazer and Imagine Entertainment are producing.

    Thurber directed 2003's summer comedy hit Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story for 20th Century Fox. Along with that film's star Ben Stiller and producer Start Cornfeld, Thurber set up a high-concept comedy last week at DreamWorks Pictures.

    When Imagine first optioned the original 1980s action series in 2003, Mike McCullers, who co-wrote the last two "Austin Powers" sequels with Mike Myers, was hired to pen a draft.

    Tom Selleck, John Hillerman, Roger E. Mosley and Larry Manetti starred in the TV series

    I was never that much of a fan o the TV show but i guess they are gonna go the spoof route that they went with Starsky and Hutch which means it could be funny,Tom Selleck parodies have the potential to produce gold:o [​IMG]

    It's gonna be someone from the Frat Pack. Probably Stiller, Ferrel, Vaughn, or one of the Wilsons.
