Soul and Glaser working on new Starsky & Hutch movie

— Posted by John Campea

I had read this before on some site and just saw it again today in the Guardian film summary and realised that it must be true.

David Soul and Paul Michael Glaser have been working on a treatment for a new Starsky & Hutch movie in a less comical vein.

According to the story:

…reunites their cardigan-toting, crime-busting alter egos on the mean streets of London.

Apparently they will be in the starring roles, here’s hoping that the chemisty that made the series so great in the first place has endured everything that these actors have faced in their lives. Lord knows they’ve both been through some very hard times since their rise to fame. Could it work?

    Omg. I can’t wait to see if they really do something like what they’re talking about. I would love to see the duo go at it again, because of the fact that I wasn’t alive to see the series in action. The recent movie with Ben and Owen was good but it just didn’t have the love and buddyness that the origianls had. Dave and Paul are the people to do this they both are very sucessfull and have got everything it takes and more. I say good luck to the both of them whatever they decide to do.

    This was a new one on me — and no one over here seems to have picked up on it… S&H were (and are) very popular in UK — it was required viewing every Saturday night. And it led to many enduring friendships. BUT can a ‘new’ movie work? I’d like to see it — the Stiller+Owen remake was embarassing. The chemistry just wasn’t there. And it was the chemistry between the two protagonists that made it more than just another cop-show. I guess we just have to wait and see…

    I am an original S&H fan. The original series recently returned to television (Chicago), and I have been taping (on VHS) each and every episode for my library. I truly enjoy watching the chemistry between them and thought it was a great show. I personally would love it if they did something again for television. My personality is a lot like David Soul’s (except for the fact that I am female). I have a quiet nature and love writing poetry. Signed, JC

    I agree a Movie would be great and I dont care if it is at the theaters or on TV I would watch it and buy It I have the DVDs the soundtrack it is form the beest years of my life great memories for me and I have been a cop for 25 years and still am and even so the show was corny sometimes the job is all that corny sad violent and good friends who will stand up with you to face it all that is what I always saw in Starsky and Hutch the remake with Wilson and Stiller was only good because of the music clothes and the appearance of Glasser and Soul I see that some of the Fan Fiction Writers voiced opinions here if they read please keep writing Fan Fiction for Starsky and Hutch I love to read it and I feel some of the Fan Fiction Writers could write or use some of their stories for scripts Please Please Make the Movie

    I forgot to add this. I loved the Stiller and Wilson remake. It didn’t try to recreate the original, thankfully, and it stood on its own while giving a bow to the originals. If they did a sequel, I’d love it.

  • cyn

    Trying to recreate what they did so many years ago is not something I see happening. I’d rather not see it. The original series is enough for me.

    The idea of them doing a movie together (not as Starsky & Hutch) does appeal to me. I wouldn’t mind that at all. Put it on some cable station to avoid an embarrassment at the box office.

    I was offended and deeply disappointed in the Stiller and Wilson remake. Many a long time fan
    of the Original Starsky & Hutch have been waiting for a reunion movie, on TV or otherwise.
    It doesn’t have to be Starsky & Hutch, but seeing
    Glaser & Soul working together again would be wonderful! Yes, I could work wonderfully,and with
    Mr. Glaser writing the screenplay, would be wonderful also!

  • PENNY

    YES , I HAVE ALWAYS LOVED THE SERIES AND AM HOPINE G FOR A MOVIE SOON

    I’ve been looking on the the internet for two years to see if there was any information on a tv reunion. I really think it should be on tv. Then again, if the script is good the die hard fans will be the first ones lined up to check it out for themselves. I really think the Ben stiller movie made a mockery out of the tv show. If a sequel ends up on TV and isn’t cheesey I think it would be so good that they will do mor like the COlombo and Rockford Files movies.
