Vince Vaughn is the New James Garner in The Rockford Files Movie

This should be interesting (or completely familiar, depending on how they play it): According to Deadline, Vince Vaughn is set to star in a feature adaptation of The Rockford Files, the '70s-era detective series that starred James Garner as a disheveled Los Angeles private eye. The involvement of scripting duo David Levien and Brian Koppelman (Rounders, Ocean's Thirteen, Solitary Man) is somewhat promising, though Vaughn hasn't shown any desire to move away from his tired Vince Vaughn shtick of late -- and do audiences really want a Vince Vaughn-ified Jim Rockford? Besides, if Steve Carell and David Shore couldn't make a Rockford reboot work, how will Vaughn & Co. fare? [Deadline]

    I knew James Garner, you are no James Garner.

  • Vince Vaughn does “Idiocracy” movies, Like “Starsky & Hutch” another TV classic that was ruined by modern day Hollywood.

    I don’t mind Hollywood remakes, as long as they aren’t made to appeal to thumb sucking teenagers and young adults. That’s what the “Jack Ass” movies are for.

    Vince Vaughn is so much better than he lets himself be. I would love to see him play this straight. I think he would surprise a lot of people.
