Universal Pictures is developing a big screen reboot of the classic James Garner television series The Rockford Files for star Vince Vaughn.
David Levien and Brian Koppelman (who penned the recently announced Runner, Runner) will script the film, with Vaughn and his sister Victoria producing through their Wild West Picture Show production company.
The Rockford Files was an Emmy Award-winning detective series about a down-on-his-luck private detective with a copper Firebird, who lived in a caravan on the Californian beach. His low-level cases were often dangerous, and sometimes he would work the case without getting paid (despite his best efforts). He was helped out by his over-protective father, his con-man friend Angel and the exasperated Detective Dennis Becker.
