Well, as Hollywood is stuck in it's perpetual go-to loop, I suppose this news shouldn't come as a surprise.

So will he be driving a Prius or a Volt?

Magnum PI’ Reboot Pilot at CBS Casts Jay Hernandez in Lead Role

The “Magnum P.I.” reboot pilot has cast Jay Hernandez as the titular private eye, Variety has learned.

Hernandez will play Thomas Magnum, a decorated ex-Navy SEAL who, upon returning home from Afghanistan, repurposes his military skills to become a private investigator. Tom Selleck, who currently stars in the CBS drama “Blue Bloods,” played the role in the original series.

Hernandez’s recent film roles include the DC Entertainment film “Suicide Squad” and appearances in both entries in the “Bad Moms” comedy franchise. He has also appeared in films like “Friday Night Lights,” “Hostel,” and in the Netflix fantasy-action film “Bright.” On the television side, he has recently appeared in “Scandal,” “Nashville,” and “The Expanse.”

He is repped by ICM Partners, Alchemy Entertainment and Fuller Law.

Peter Lenkov, the writer and producer behind current CBS reboots of “Hawaii Five-O” and “MacGyver,” will serve as the writer and executive producer on the new version of “Magnum P.I.,” which had previously gotten a pilot production commitment at the network. Eric Guggenheim, an executive producer and writer on Lenkov’s “Hawaii Five-O,” will also write and executive produce. John Davis and John Fox of Davis Entertainment will also executive produce along with Danielle Woodrow. Justin Lin will direct the pilot and executive produce. CBS Television Studios will co-produce with Universal Television.

This is one of several such projects ordered to pilot at CBS. CBS has also ordered a pilot for a reboot of the female-led cop drama “Cagney and Lacey,” as well as an adaptation of “LA Confidential” and a revival of “Murphy Brown.”

MX Magnum.

Or Magnum MX

Help, I'm having premonitions of future flashbacks.

I won't even watch a commercial for this show. Some things are sacred. Magnum PI starring Tom Sellack is one of them.

Even the dolts in Hollywood can't come up with a new show and have to make p.c. remakes. I don't care what background,nationality,etc.,the actors are but at least try and make something original.
I bet they won't be saying "Higgy baby" anytime soon.

Cagney and Lacey? Murphy Brown??? Oh God no, Murphy Brown was an insufferable lib fest shit show the first time around. Convinced of its own intelligence and elitist "I am more evolved than you" attitude.

Make it stop!

Quit screwing with my childhood shows. I was too young to understand the show but the cars and helicopter and such were cool. I’ve been watching the show on Netflix and while cheesy sometimes, not a bad show, better than much these days.

Already taken by Mad Magazine back in the eighties. Although I think theirs was titled 'Magnumb P.U.'

Early reports say that the show will feature a "disavowed former MI6 agent named Juliet Higgins"

True! There are only three movies from the eighties that haven't been remade (yet) again. Ghostbusters worked out spectacularly didn't it???
