    Without the pastel colors, blazers and sandles can it even be called Miami Vice? [​IMG]

    Gosh, just when Jamie Foxx began earning respect with Any Given Sunday, Collateral, and now Ray, he pulls a Booty Call (I love that movie) - I like Miami Vice, but I am not sure if this could work. Drama, comedy?

    If it does come out, it had better be set in the 80s or I will NOT be watching!

    It might be interesting to see an old tv show that's for once actually given a straight adaptation to the big screen instead of the kneejerk "Old stuff is, like, you know, SO FUNNY!!!" method that Hollywood's used for most such films recently.

    And of course, it wouldn't be Miami Vice without the classic Jan Hammer theme and all of the 80's period music that fit so perfectly with the series. That was one series where the music added to the mood of the stories. If they reinvent the music with a rap score, that'll just ruin it.

    As for Sonny Crockett, I hope that they don't turn this into a stupid comedy and put someone like Owen Wilson in the role. While I happen to like Owen Wilson, he just wouldn't be right for the role. The best way is for Michael Mann to do this film version straight and have cameos by Don Johnson and Phillip Michael Thomas in the film.

    Noooo!!! Hasn't that guy been in enough movies already!?!

    That aside, the idea of bringing Miami Vice is great as long as it stays true to its roots as a gritty, urban crime drama. And I don't think Michael Mann has done a comedy so I'm not worried. At least I don't think he has.

    Hehe.. I saw a 'headline' yesterday that said "Farrel and Foxx for Vice?" or something to that effect. I figured Foxx was for Jamie Foxx, who has shown he can do a serious role. But, for some reason I though Farrel was Will Farrel and my mind began reeling in denial from the thoughts of a Miami Vice comedy.

    So I'll take Colin Farrell instead... ;P

    ...but you don't...

    The script preview makes it sound like what it should be, a great Michael Mann movie, but it's definitely not the TV series.

    I think Daniel Craig (Layer Cake) would make a cool Crockett.


    What is it then?

    If you could call any show a "relic" of the 80's, this would be it. It is so completely stuck in that time that I just can't see it working now. IMO, it's just too time specific. Though, they will probably just update to the point where it doesn't feel at all like the show. Basically, just use the title and character names like most tv shows turned movies years later.
