Vince Vaughn to Play Jim Rockford in Film Version of The Rockford Files

The Rockford Files

We thought the idea of remaking — or rebooting or reimagining — The Rockford Files had been put to rest.

Apparently not.

David Levien and Brian Koppelman (Runaway Jury, Ocean's Thirteen) are writing a theatrical screenplay for Universal Studios in which Vince Vaughn would star as Malibu private eye Jim Rockford, a role that was played by James Garner in the 1970s series on NBC.

This is wrong on so many levels, not the least of which is casting. Let's hope that someone, somewhere comes to their senses before this project gets too far along to stop.
