Mark Ruffalo lined up to play iconic cop figure in reboot of classic show

This would be fantastic.

Mark Ruffalo is being touted as the man to don the classic trench coat of the legendary Columbo in a possible re-boot of the classic American cop show.

Gary Whitta, the writer for Star Wars Anthology: Rogue One has floated the idea and although nothing has been signed, he has been collaborating with Josh Trank and calls this his 'dream project'.

He’s still trying to determine whether he’d like to make it modern day or keep it in the 70’s time period of the show, but that, the re-boot, if it it did eventually happen, would be a limited event series.

Just one more thing, this is how Mark Ruffalo might look like if he does indeed reprise the iconic character.
