Patrick Macnee passed away at age 93 on June 25, 2015, of natural causes in his home in Rancho Mirage, CA.
Before there was Marvel’s The Avengers on the big-screen there was The Avengers’ Avengers on the small-screen – originally starring the ever-sophisticated Macnee and oh-so-hot-and-elegant Dianna Rigg as secret agents John Steed and Mrs. Emma Peel.
In the meantime, Charisma could play Mary Tyler Moore in a bio-pic of that legendary actress.
According to Deadline.com, Philip Gawthorne has been hired to pen the screenplay for Universal Pictures’ big-screen take on the little screen classic Kojak, set to star Vin Diesel.
Let’s see if the Fast & Furious icon can measure up to the iconic Telly Savalas, who originated the role, bald head, lollipop, and all.
Leonardo DiCaprio was to produce a remake of The Twilight Zone, Michael Douglas was to re-do My Three Sons, and Robert Downey, Jr. was to revamp (and star in) a revamp of Perry Mason, each set for theatrical release. What happened to all of that?
Life was better when there was just the Emmys, the Tonys, the Grammys and the Oscars.
The opening credit sequence from The Donna Reed Show or Father Knows Best? You pick.
Peace to lovers of all things classic.
