Nicolas Cage Is Magnum P.I.?

Please let him remake Her Alibi next.

Add another name to the list of actors rumored to be up for the title role in Universal’s long-threatened Magnum P.I. adaptation.

IGN Movies reports on the widespread rumors that Nicolas Cage is mulling a star turn as the Hawaii-based, mustached ’80s hero, played to iconic perfection by mustached ’80s Tom Selleck during the series’ 1980-88 run on CBS. Everyone from George Clooney to Matthew McConaughey has supposedly been offered the part, and nothing has come of it yet, but as IGN notes:

According to The Daily Express, “Nicolas likes the mix of comedy and crime-solving in the script.” The paper also claims that the project fell apart 18 months ago when Ricky Gervais rejected the notion of playing Higgins to George Clooney’s Magnum.

As many of you will recall, the last time Cage played a character in a tropical setting, he strapped on a bear suit and ran around in the jungle for last year’s Wicker Man remake. We could only hope for similarly fantastic results out of a Cage-led Magnum P.I. adaptation. Cross your fingers.
