It’s been rumored for so long, it’s taken on something like urban legend status — but a Magnum P.I. feature film starring Matthew McConaughey may actually come to pass.

Entertainment Weekly‘s Hollywood Insider reports that McConaughey has been formally offered the role of the wisecracking ex-Navy SEAL/Hawaiian shirt-wearing private detective played by Tom Selleck on CBS from 1980-88.

According to EW‘s sources, McConaughey is “reading the script from writer/director Rawson Thurber (Dodgeball) and will decide shortly.”
