I love Hawaii Five-0, and was a huge fan of Jack Lord. You just do not find actors like that anymore. I think they would be making a serious mistake by making a Five-0 movie. There isn't an actor today fit to wear McGarret's shoes. I love the show, and think the movie would be a flop. It was a masterpiece, and this movie talk is just another way for someone trying to make money off a great show. I can not tell you how many times I have watched the show. McGarret, even though a fictional character, redefined cool. Your trying to tell me one of the Baldwin brothers is going to be casted as a Five-0 member, get real. Jack, James,and Kam were a part of the greatest show ever. Let it go, do not cheapen the show with grade d actors.

A NEW Five-0? If it ain't broke, don't fix it!

Hmmm - as I read through the comments, it seems a lot of people agree, and I am one of them, that it would be much wiser to set the show in the present with a NEW Five-O team. For one thing, you cannot take a character out of his time and have the same character. You may change your main character from a loner to a lover, from a morally high principled gentleman who seldom used crude langauge to a 90's every other word a four letter word cop, etc. - but you will not have Steve McGarrett. You will have a new character. People are products of their time as well as their principles. You cannot take McGarrett out of his time or out of his principles and still have Steve McGarrett. If you have the new "McGarrett" sleeping with someone or using unnecessary violence or so many things that seem necessary to make a movie these days, you will have a new head of Five-O, but you will not have Steve McGarrett. I think the best idea is to have a new generation of Five-O people and have McGarrett "retired" and Dano moved on to the governor's office. It makes the most sense and it is the only thing that would be realistic. It would be totally unrealistic to see the original characters in the 90's. It simply wouldn't be them. It would be strangers with the same names, but no more. Please, whoever out there is listening, do not try to replace Jack Lord as McGarrett. And do not try to take 60's and 70's characters and place them in the 90's. It can't be done.

For whatever worth my opinion may have: Glad to see that Rose Freeman and George Litto prevailed in the petulant lawsuit CBS hit them with. Knowing Rose's deep appreciation and respect for the show and genre and Mr. Litto's personal respect for Len Freeman, I am optimistic that this movie will be crafted with care and concern for all: the fans who so loved the series, the actors who participated for many years in the original, and any new viewers who may have not seen Five-O (is there such a creature?). I think setting the movie in the present might be easier to deal with logistically as it is virtually impossible to 'replace' Steve McGarrett believably with a current icon (although if that does happen, David Elliott [JAG] or Jeff Fahey [the Marshall] come to mind). The intent of the defunct CBS series idea of '97 had some merit in that Five-O, the "next generation," would be one way of avoiding the pitfalls of trying to recreate the original staff. Considering the updated technology of today, however, I'm afraid a lot of the forensic and investigative science of the late 60's would come across as too hokey for today's hip, techno-generated audience. To do it as a retro piece might end up amusing the audience more than anything else. I can't help but think that a modern take would work better. (Mission Impossible, the new version, worked as well as it did by not trying to ape the time and era of the original. (We won't talk about Phelps' final aberration... a big continuity mistake!) But with Rose and Mr. Litto at the helm of the new Five-O, I would expect that such mistakes would be headed off early on. (Also would love to see "McGarrett" in a love interest theme... but done nicely, not crudely. The man does not give his heart nor honor lightly.) I do hope we will get to see the "old gang" in the movie in some form or other. Jim MacArthur really does make the perfect governor! Watching him wander about during filming (the '97 pilot) and in between takes, I was very impressed with the dignified, powerful presence he projected as the governor. (Boy, did Danno mellow out.) He's got my vote! And let's hope that Mike's page is made the official site of the project! Aloha. rita

To me, JL can never be replaced, and to do it with Alec Baldwin, the ultimate Hollywood puke, is a travesty. I love H50 because it is so un-Hollywood. The last thing I want to see is all the regulars from People magazine polluting the legacy of the greatest cop show of all time.

George Litto has a TALL order indeed to ever secure cast that can equate to the orignal series...However, I would like to see Ken Wahl (of Wiseguy fame) cast as McGarrett (he has the face and closest to the hair of the late Jack Lord. Chris O'Donnell or even Matthew McConnahy would be excellent choices as Danno. Jackie Chan is fine for a comparitively young Chin Ho Kelly. However, I have anbother BIG concern...who is Litto going to get to do remix a new version of the Hawaii Five-O theme music!!!!My suggestion...Noone except John Williams, as he was a close professional ally of the late Mort Stevens.

I have mixed feelings about the possibility of a new 5-0 movie. I would love to see it but I can't see ANY actor stepping into Jack Lord's shoes. I too have thought Jackie Chan would be fun as Chin Ho Kelly, Chris O'Donnell as Danno, but Harrison Ford or Alec Baldwin as Steve, I think not! I think they're both fantastic actors I just can't see it. The only actor that has the height and the hair for it is Jim Carey, and i'm not a Jim Carey fan but I think he might be able to pull it off. In some of the best movies it's the most unlikely actor who makes the film great. IE; Anthony Hopkins as Hannibal Lechter, John Travolta as an angel or the President or a killer, (there's a joke in there somewhere i'm sure!) or how about Michael Keaton as Batman? Everyone went "yeah right" at first but they all did it and they did it well. As far as Kono goes, I have no idea... a Peterbuilt Truck maybe?

A great cast for the movie: Alec Baldwin as McGarret, Val Kilmer as Danno, and Jackie Chan as Chin Ho. Also South Park Creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone could appear as a couple of beach bums.

Hawaii five-0 movie should be the next generation of five-0 and still have the same morals values and principles, since Jack Lord as Steve McGarrett wrote the training manual on the show. Be like Star Trek and the Captain's on the Enterprise's. This would be the best way to honor to the past, to the future. Just a thought, let's hope for the best.

I was very delighted to hear that George Litto and Rose Freeman secured the rights to Hawaii Five-O, and a motion picture is in the works. I agree with others after reading most of the comments. My advise to Mr. Litto and Rose Freeman. Set the movie in the present with a new cast and a new head of Five-O and Harrison Ford should be the first choice for the lead role. Why? Because, like Jack Lord, Harrison Ford fits the perfect image of a role model for our young people today. I feel that George Litto and Rose Freeman should build a new character to match Harrison Ford's personality or the actor chosen for the lead role if they cannot get Ford but with the same high values as McGarrett. Trying to copycat Steve McGarrett or any other members of the original Five-O Team would not be the same, no matter how experienced of a motion picture Producer Mr. Litto and Mrs. Freeman are. The movie just wouldn't be the same by casting new actors to replace Jack Lord as McGarrett and James MacArthur as Danno, and Zulu as Kono and Kam Fong as Chin. There would always be void. That's why I agree with those who think it would be better and more realistic to come up with a new cast of characters for the Five-O Team, including women this time because there are a lot of women in law enforcement today. I agree that Holly Hunter would be a good choice for a lead female role. Janet Gunn, who played Sgt. Cassie St. John on the resent USA Network series Silk Stalkings which just ended with its final episode, could fit in as a new member of the elite Five-O Unit. Like some others have said. Some of the original cast could be in the movie in new parts. James MacArthur could play now Gov. Dan Williams as he did in the 1997 failed TV Pilot. Zoulou could be now state Attorney General Kono. Kam Fong could be Chin O'Kelley's twin brother? Even if we never heard of a twin brother for Chin? The script writers could always invent one. He could be an FBI or ATF agent, planning to make a transfer to Five-O after retirement from the federal Gov. They say you can do anything in Hollywood? The main thing is the movie should be made in te spirit and basic style of the original Five-O TV series ,set in present times, without trying to re cast the original characters because it will seem too phoney. There could be some flashbacks to the 1960's & 70's with scenes from the original series spliced in to the new movie or its sequel? Also: If the movie and possible sequels do well. Mr. Litto and Mrs. Freeman could follow them up with a new TV series in about two to four years? Sincerely, Vern

I don't have a problem with a 5-0 movie. The great original stuff will always be around, and the new movie that turns out horrible cannot trash a legacy. DREAM TEAM FOR 5-0 CAST: McGarrett: Alec Baldwin Danno: Tom Hanks Chin: John Lone Duke: Paul Sorvino.

I am very much on the side of those against having a new actor play McGarrett and the others. If it is to be set in the present, having a McGarrett et al would be nonsensical. Even if it's to be in the past, a non-JL McGarrett is equally wrong. The only acceptable scenario is to have it set in the present with the successors to the original crew. Respectful references could be made to the originals; those alive could appear in roles suitable to their age (governor, etc.). At the risk of sounding haughty, I don't understand why anyone would want to see a "new" McGarrett played by a different actor. For Heaven's sake, why? Why toss out all sense of continuity with a serial drama that lasted 12 years!? It's unforgiveable. OK, I can see the rationale for doing so: the mass audience doesn't care about such continuity. Well, fine; they needn't. But then why would the same mass audience care if the lead has the same name as the original? It doesn't make sense. So, nothing is lost by having a contemporary version with different characters ("successors") while much would be lost with a) a totally different, decontextualized '70s version, and/or b) a contemporary version which, inexplicably, had characters which would be in their seventies but have been miraculously transposed into youthful bodies. Ughhh -- it would be a big mistake. Mike, have you weighed in on this topic? Any plans to? Thanks.

I really hope that if they make a new Hawaii Five O movie, they come up with a whole new batch of characters and stay away for the original characters. After all, there can only ever be ONE Steve McGarrett. No one can fill Jack's shoes. I am not excited at all about the whole idea of a new movie, and I am quite content to stay with the original HAWAII FIVE O.

Much will influence the casting for the proposed movie: business considerations (who's available, when, for how much, etc.) are likely to dominate. So, no specific personality comments from this quarter on that aspect, except for one thing. It would be, if not mandatory, then highly desirable for some of the original stars to have at least nominal appearances in the film, if willing and ready. Kam & Jim did joke about wanting to be observed in a beach setting, older but still wise, checking out the action that one expects to check out by tropical waters. And what would be wrong with Harry offering up some commentary on revised forensic procedures, for example, perhaps as a ghosting? Principles are another matter, however. It's hoped that the strong moral tenets that generally flavoured the original TV series, will be mirrored by the protagonists. Otherwise, its substance will be heavily compromised. But as always, the new production must feature Hawai'i at its best...the 'aina' (scenery) and especially its colourful kama'aina (local people). When all is said & done, those were the main drawing-cards 20-30 years ago that enticed viewers around the world to tune in, and it has not changed, in my opinion. If that isn't kept paramount in the production, then Kui Lee's song "Ain't no big 'ting bruddah" will definitely apply to this movie's ratings. Malama pono,

Since I was 12 years old Hawaii Five-O has been my favourite show on television. Gladly some episodes of the show were again broadcasted in Holland and I loved it even more. This old love has never died! Because of this rerun I discovered this site of Mike Quigley and it's fabulous. I almost visit this site every day. Now there is big news about an upcoming movie about Hawaii Five-O. I'm glad that the series won't end but will find a new beginning for a new generation. I only hope that the story will be good and that the right actors will be chosen to play the roles of McGarrett and Williams. Jack Lord was and is my favourite actor. It will not be easy for an other actor to step in his footsteps. But McGarrett will live forever and so will also be Jack Lord, the one and only star of Hawaii Five-O. Thanks Mike for your beautiful page about HFO. Lots of success for the workers on the movie to come.

My opinion for what it's worth: If they want to make a movie about Hawaii...do just that....new script...new characters.. no connection to Five 0, perhaps a new division of HPD. If they do a re-make of HF0, they will change it and the next generation will never see the real classic. Mike, you think the 12th season wasn't good, there were only small changes in that, plus 2 main people from the original cast, wait until they do a whole make over! You won't recognize it.

I'd like to put my two cents in for some of the actors for the upcoming H50 movie: I vote for either Harrison Ford (he's always great) or Alec Baldwin (who has Jack Lord's dark good looks and intensity) for the character of McGarrett; for Danno I'd like to see Chris O'Donnell, who's a dead ringer for a younger James MacArthur, and an excellent actor as well; I'd like to see one of the good smart actresses around today for a supporting role (a member of the Five-0 team), perhaps Jamie Lee Curtis, Holly Hunter, Helen Hunt, or Bridget Fonda. To pay tribute to the original show, I'd like to see James MacArthur as perhaps the Governor; maybe Zoulou as the Attorney General? I'd like to see Kam Fong in a role as well (Doc?), but I understand he's recovering from cancer surgery. Best wishes to you, Kam! So that's my "dream team". Aloha! Julie

I agree with you, Kathy. Jack Lord, for all practical purposes, WAS Steve McGarrett. His own moral values and principles went into every ounce of the character. His love for poetry and art was a love Steve McGarrett shared. Everything that made McGarrett great came from who he was, and those were qualities that only Jack Lord could. You won't find a movie today with no foul language, no sex, and no unnecessary violence. McGarrett was such a wonderful role model for kids as well as adults. "Hawaii Five-O" was a G or sometimes PG (action) rated show, and McGarrett could be watched and pointed out as role model to kids everywhere. You won't find that in a movie today. It's too bad money has to be the bottom line of everything done today. Why do we have to attempt to "remake" the unique? I suppose it's because there is so little true creativity and imagination today, that all we can do is "remake" things from the past. I do not favor a "Hawaii Five-O" movie unless it's one with a whole new Five-O unit. To have McGarrett still head of Five-O in the 90's is ridiculous. He would've retired long ago! If they made a movie with a new unit - obviously Five-O didn't go out of business when McGarrett retired or left - it would be better. Don't try to make a movie with another McGarrett. It'll be a joke. I am a fan from back in the original time of the show, and to try to remake something so wonderful is bordering on blasphemy. You can't repaint the Mona Lisa, or rewrite Beethoven's 5th Symphony. Some things are unique and should be left alone. You can't resurrect Steve McGarrett. He's gone, and we should enjoy what we have of him.

I guess I feel the need to put in my two cents about the future Hawaii Five-O movie/movies. When I watched Hawaii Five-O back in 1968 with my mother I was just a kid. I was never frightened by the violence or afraid that Wo Fat would take over the world, and why you ask, because I knew "good would always triumph over evil" and I knew that McGarrett would uphold the law. Now that I'm older and wiser (well older anyway), I realize that "good doesn't always triumph over evil" but I'd like to think that there are super cops (just like McGarrett) in real life that uphold the law. Of course there were other cops/detectives that played the same type of role (Cannon, Kojak, Mannix, Barnaby Jones, and many others). What made Steve McGarrett so different from the others - that's easy, Jack Lord. So with that said, I'd like to say that a movie made with another Steve McGarrett is like remaking the television series "All in the Family" with another Archie Bunker or "I Love Lucy" with another Lucy Ricardo. I realize that no one person makes a television show, but Jack Lord had all the qualities that viewers were looking for in a super cop and I think you'd be hard pressed to find those qualities in most of the actors today. When Jack Lord took on a part (whether it was a character in a movie or starring in a show like "Stoney Burke" or "Hawaii Five-O), he took his responsibility as role model very seriously. Obviously I don't think finding an actor to fill Jack's shoes is possible - casting the box office sensation of the year or People's "sexiest man alive" or a Jack Lord clone just won't do. I think a movie like this should be a tribute to the people who made it such a great success (Leonard Freeman, Jack Lord, writers, directors, co-stars, guest stars, etc.). There's nothing wrong with casting James MacArthur as the Governor, maybe Doug Mossman and Moe Keale as HPD officers (even Kam in another role other than Chin), but Jack Lord WAS and IS Steve McGarrett, and there's no substitute for the real thing.

Just a thought: It would be a nice touch if Jack's Cadddy could make an appearance as the governor's limo or something like that. Only those of us loyal fans would know what it was and it would make a nice tribute To JL.

After reading some of the comments about what other people would like to see in the new Hawaii Five-O movie, I would like to add my own 3 cents. 1. I do not think there should be attempt to copy the original verbatim. I respect Karen Rhodes comments, but I would NOT set the film in the 60's or 70's. Keep it in today's setting. Do not become slavish to everything that we associated with the original show, but rather find some key elements and use those as building blocks to update the original. 2. The script is obviously key. Besides being set in the here-and-now, I think the basic plot should probably have a fair amount of action and suspense, but not be totally action driven. Good example: using Wo Fat as the villian would give the film an international flavor, but the best Wo Fat TV episodes did not just have action. The key element was a good plot and the mind-games McGarrett and Wo Fat played with each other like a good game of chess. 3. The cast is obviously important, but I don't think the studio should be afraid to use unknowns if necessary. For McGarrett, I have generally favored Michael Douglas or Alec Baldwin. For Dan Williams, I suggest Val Kilmer or possibly someone younger like Matt Damon. I could also be talked into doing the part. Chin could be a local Hawaiian actor, or possibly somebody young like Jason Scott Lee. Kono is tough, but I have suggested some of the fine professional football players who are Hawaiian, like Dan Saliamoua (sp?). I would also include a fifth member of the team, perhaps a female or another local to play Ben Kokua. I do not think it would be unreasonable to have one of these characters (like Ben or Kono) either die or become severely injured during the film. Obviously some of the supporting cast like Che Fong, Doc Bergman, and Steve's secretary Jenny should be in at least a couple of scenes to add some flavor of the original TV show. That about does it. I have said my piece.

After reading the ideas that were in the Star-Bulletin about the new movie Hawaii Five-0, I think Litto and Freeman could be on the right track. I definitely think that movie should have Steve McGarrett as the head of Five-0 and a main character in an interesting action story. I also liked the idea of getting more into the characters and giving McGarrett a romantic interest which I feel was missing in the series. If this is done right, it could be good. I am definitely against having McGarrett killed off and Danno taking over as that would ruin any kind of story for many fans. This has been suggested and I hope thrown into the waste basket by Mr. Litto and Mrs. Freeman. As a diehard Five-0 and Steve McGarrett fan, I wish them good luck! How about Dylan McDermott of The Practice as McGarrett?

I just got on to your page and noticed plans for a new Five-O movie. I am not as enthusiastic about it because it seems to me no one could play McGarrett the way Jack Lord did. I really believe a big budget movie will take away what we like about Five-O. Look at the string of movies that came out from television ideas that didn't do well with audiences. I like the idea of a new t.v. series with new characters (just not the one that CBS was thinking about in '97). I think that in Hollywood, producers and studios believe a movie has to be BIG in order to succeed in the box office. A movie is a one time shot to be successful. At least in television you have the luxury to build characters over a course of time and if an episode isn't good, you can wait until next week to see if it gets better. Regardless of what anyone thinks about this, the movie will not be what we hope it to be. In order for the big box office draw, the producers are going to have to make it appealing for a wide array of audiences, things will probably be sacrificed for money.

Bravo to Rose Freeman and George Litto for securing the rights to Hawaii Five-0! Five-0 is Leonard Freeman's legacy and Rose certainly deserved to have the rights. I am a bit concerned, however, about a Five-0 movie simple because it will be very difficult to improve on the original. But if it is going to be done, I thank God that people who genuinely care about Five-0 and what it stood for will be in charge of production. McGarrett and Co. were men of high moral standards and integrity, values which are getting more and more difficult to find in our society. I hope this film is made with these qualities in mind and stays true to the original format of Five-0. I don't think foul language or sex scenes are necessary to the making of a fine motion picture. It is the story itself, a story well told and acted that makes a picture great. I have many different ideas about how this picture should be made and who should play certain parts, but I know I'm not the one making these decisions. I would like to say, however, that I would enjoy seeing this picture set in the late 60's, early 70's with all the cool stuff that goes along with this era! I'd also like to see as many of the original actors have roles in the re-make. Wouldn't James McArthur make a great Governor?! And McGarrett? Harrison Ford, of course! Thanks for listenting!

So there's going to be a Five-0 movie, after all, and now done by people who know what Five-0 is about! Good! What would I like to see? I'd like to do the whole nostalgia shtick up right! Set it in the late 60s or early 70s, keeping intact the wonderful jazzy spirit of the original series. Also keep intact the moral qualities of the original -- McGarrett's emphasis on personal and social responsibility; the theme of evil in paradise. And the cars! Gotta have those great old cars! Make it a good "people" story with lots of good plot complications. Make it "hot" and fast-moving, but don't feel like there has to be foul language or any of that stuff to make it good. What makes it good is a well-crafted story presented well. I hope the producers will not submit to the stupidity that is too rampant in Hollyweird and feel like they have to "dumb down" to attract an audience. I think movies like Schindler's List prove that there is an audience for intelligent entertainment!

McGarrett: Alec Baldwin, Danno: Brad Pitt, Governor: Nancy Kwan. Set it in the '60's, use lots of Ventures tunes for beach scenes, lots of helicopter shots of the cars moving thru the island. FoMoCo releases a performance version of the last Grand Marquis soon, marketed as Mercury Marauder. Get one -- a black one of course, if the story line runs in the present. Ensure a Wo Fat plot line is written into the story -- and have Red Chinese espionage as the major story line (very timely, no?).

Regarding the new 50 movie. I am glad to see that a Freeman is in charge. Retroshiek is in so a 60/70 would probably sell but I'm not 100% sure that is neccessary. To me the McGarrett mystique is sorely needed in this era of I don't give a *#$@. Integrity, honor and compassion are never out of style and those are the qualities Jack Lord played so well. It is those characteristics that we are missing in today's society. In my opinion the only actor who comes remotely close to the image of McGarrett is David James Elliott of JAG. If there is a need of medical consultation on this script to avoid any little slip ups, I would be honored to offer some suggestions. My sincere wishes for the success of this project. Aloha. Annette

Its great news to hear that CBS has given the OK to make Hawaii Five-O into a movie. ITS ABOUT TIME! I would like to see Harrison Ford play the lead role. You can bet the Five-O movie is going to be good if Litto is putting it together.

I was laid off from my job in October of 1998 and during my forced vacation and job search, I discovered that two episodes of 5-0 are broadcast each day on a relatively new UHF channel in the Philadelphia area. I was a fan of the show as a teenager and young adult, but forgot many of the engaging characters and excellent story lines that were presented on a weekly basis for the dozen years that the series ran. Your website has answered the multitude of questions that arose as I watched virtually every episode during my employment hiatus. I had remarked to my wife how surprised I was that no one had attempted to do either a TV series remake or a big screen version of this immortal series when I checked into the site on 4/7 and read the good news. Thanks to everyone who contributed to this excellent site and for keeping the spirit of Jack Lord and Leonard Freeman alive over all the years. Here's hoping that the new production is faithful to the mores that Jack and Leonard established over two decades ago, not the half-baked program that CBS had planned to foist upon us.
