The classic TV series Hawaii Five-O is set to be revived in a new, long-awaited movie.

An official at WARNER BROS PICTURES has confirmed the studio will co-produce a film based on the hit series, which aired from 1968-1980, with GEORGE LITTO PRODUCTIONS.

The film is tentatively titled HAWAII FIVE-O THE MOVIE.

The choice of who will play lead character STEVE McGARRETT, originally portrayed by late actor JACK LORD, and who will direct will not be made until the script is completed and approved.

It is hoped the 80-day filming in Hawaii will begin in the late spring (05) for a summer 2006 release.
