Reporting from the Sedona Film Festival in Arizona:


Rumors have been circulating for months that CBS was close to finally reviving the iconic police drama Hawaii Five-0 after an announcement more than a year ago…Now it’s official…

CBS made the announcement yesterday saying that writers Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci (Transformer: Revenge of the Fallen) will do the screenplay…

“It obviously will be a very updated, modern version,” a source at CBS told Reel Hawaii…



Kurtzman, Orci and Peter Lenkov, an executive producer on CBS’ CSI: NY, will develop the new version…According to the CBS announcement, Lenkov will write the pilot script under Kurtzman and Orci’s supervision, with Lenkov being the showrunner if the pilot is picked up as a series…



No time frame was given as to when CBS would start shooting the pilot, begin preproduction or if it even will be shot in Hawaii…



Jerry Bruckheimer and Warner Bros.’ Cooler Kings pilot according to sources has been delayed until at least January because so many productions are heading to Hawaii that available production equipment is quickly dwindling…Don’t be surprised if much of the Five-0 pilot is filmed on a sound stage in Los Angeles, a source said…According to Variety, CBS gave the project a pilot commitment yesterday after a pitch from Kurtzman, Orci and Lenkov…



CBS reportedly has wanted to revive the series since the disastrous pilot filmed on Oahu more than a decade ago starring Gary Busey…That pilot by veteran producer Stephen Cannell never aired…


The original Hawaii Five-0 series was created by Leonard Freeman and starred the iconic Jack Lord…A Five-0 film has been languishing in development for years by business partners of the Freeman estate…


Casting hasn’t been announced for the rebooted Five-0
