On Recasting Remington Steele

As I mentioned a few months ago, Pierce Brosnan has expressed an interest in reviving Remington Steele, the 1980s mystery-comedy television series that provided his breakout role, as a feature film. Some reports, though, indicate that Brosnan has no interest in reprising his role of the mysterious Mr. Steele, but would recast the roles of Steele and Laura Holt, the brains of the Remington Steele Detective Agency. While I’m not exactly keen on the idea of recasting, I admit there’s probably a better chance of drawing a decent box office with newer, younger leads.

So, Allyn’s dream casting for a Remington Steele revival?

Rachel Weisz as Laura Holt. Clive Owen as Remington Steele.

I don’t think anyone could better that. Except, of course, for getting Brosnan and Stephanie Zimbalist back. 😉

In the meantime, take a look at Steele Here, a blog devoted to Remington Steele-related blatherings. That’s the magic of the Internet, that somewhere someone is fan enough of something to want to say what they feel needs to be said.
