If they can be not too tall, that would be a plus.
Folk determined to take the character in ‘cool’ or ‘woke’ new directions could run roughshod over Columbo’s treasured persona and heritage, alienating fans in the process. Would I want to see Columbo chillin’ at a hip-hop star’s gold-plated ‘crib’ in a modern day setting? Maybe just go madly different. Oh, what a dream. If that sounds unadventurous, so be it. Columbo was a police procedural, after all, not a self-contained standalone work, and it wouldn’t be so wrong to try it again with the right people. What's YOUR ultimate favourite Columbo episode? Please spill your thoughts on what you’d want to see in a Columbo reboot should it ever happen. Never. 7.7 (2,025) 0. If he’s too old, maybe Will Arnett or Stephen Colbert? Tom Cruise is too jacked. And, most contentiously of all, who could be entrusted to follow in Peter Falk’s footsteps? However, Columbo is such a televisual treasure that a re-imagining is fraught with risk. It would be more of a refresh than a reboot, but the original recipe ain’t broke, so there’s no need to fix it. Another huge fan of both Peter Falk and the good Lieutenant, Lyonne has enough amiability and eccentricity to be the female heir apparent to the Columbo dynasty. Kelsey Grammer could play one of the smug, arrogant, wealthy types. Rate.
The character was originally portrayed by Peter Falk in the hit American crime drama from 1971 until 2003. “Nothing’s ever going to touch Peter’s performance, but if a character is truly a great character, then it should be able to be played and reinterpreted by other actors,” he said. A present day reimagining would be (by far) my least favoured route to go down, as it’s the one that I would most expect to turn into a calamitous pile of steaming pants.
As a designer myself, someone who is paid to be creative, I say to film makers everywhere, come on, give us new ideas, new formats, we can still enjoy the old ones but have something all new to anticipate. I think Mr. Moffat, himself, would make a good Colombo! Again, leave peter and the memories we have of him alone. They have to be able to convey deviousness and the wheels turning inside the head. Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss were the brains behind the hit BBC series starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman. "All that ‘Oh, just one more thing’ stuff isn’t absent-mindedness. That’s why I’m on Team Ruffalo – at least until such a point where he’s categorically ruled out. Why bother, when Falk was so perfect in the role, and so intrinsically connected with the character? I think these two would (not “could possibly”) ruin the franchise. No. As a final word, I might suggest to The Radio Times writer to grab the Columbo box set and familiarise themself with the show to avoid any accidental controversy should the spiky subject of a Columbo reboot ever be raised again….

Dennis Leary might be too good at playing a total bastard but at least we’d want to see him go to jail.

View our online Press Pack. I’m more interested in constructive debate about how a reboot could work than a blanket refusal to even consider the prospect, so do share your views on preferred settings, timelines and cast – the Lieutenant and the potential villains! A modern retelling might rely less on Lt. Columbo’s people solving skills due to forensic advances, DNA sequencing being the most obvious. It was always served up in moderation, so two or three seasons of 4-6 episodes would be in keeping with the traditions of the show, and offer the best opportunity for quality thresholds to be met. Sherlock and Dr Who writer/producer Steven Moffat has clarified his stance on Columbo following an interview in which he revealed he’d failed in a bid to bring the Lieutenant back to screens.. . S1, Ep7. The “alibi” trapped the killer. I’ll never share the storyline I wrote. I’ve weirdly only just discovered the joy of Sherlock and must say it’s fantastically good so I’ve faith if Stephen did want to do it he’d do a great job. God forbid, if Columbo ever got into the hands of some flashy fool like J.J. Abrams or Guy Ritchie I’d abandon all hope. I should watch my mouth better by now. That’s what I’m considering here. I hate it, nowadays everything must be connected (though I enjoyed new Dirk Gently, that was cancelled after two seasons). She seems perfect for the part. Our journalists strive for accuracy but on occasion we make mistakes. As a medium, TV is more appealing to the world’s leading stars than it’s ever been. THE Sherlock creators have shared plans for a dark Columbo reboot - and brand the character a "unprepossessing sadist". Dont let this man anywhere near columbo!!! 7. She has a strong accent and not imposing posture. She could use her hair as a perfect prop to fumble with. As a teller of short tales, I think Mr. Moffat is brilliantly creative. No one could match Falk’s interpretation – especially in the 70s – so why not just leave it alone? Always remember that, while Lt. Columbo is still almost preternaturally equipped to gather the minutest of clues, his real strength is solving people.
Faced with that prospect, I’d happily live my life without ever seeing a rebooted Lieutenant. Just no. Most fans of Peter Falk and Columbo would state outright (and shirtily) that the show should never be rebooted. I did have a decent go at it, but the rights are really tied up. Nope. But whether good or bad, it wouldn’t mean the originals were any poorer because of it. Rate. Put forward on Twitter by screenwriter and author Gary Whitta, Ruffalo was only too happy to be linked to the role and has said in several interviews that he’d love to be the guy to inherit the rumpled mac. That’s the crux. But there’s an additional challenge, because part of Columbo’s shtick is that he comes across as nonthreatening and mild-mannered. Why is it the took offthe air every week colbo at 10 am im a fanaric of columbo they take.
