Don't worry, the 2004 movie version this most definitely is not and Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson are nowhere to be seen.
Gunn shared some of the details of the project in a post on Facebook, saying that his vision for the show "would NOT be a reboot or a remake, but a continuation of the original series" which makes it hard to define (we're guessing it might be something like the new iteration of 'Doctor Who'?) so we're going to keep going with reboot for now until Gunn gives us a better word for it.
"When I was a kid, Starsky & Hutch was the first ‘adult’ show I ever saw, and I fell in love," Gunn said. "It instilled in me a lifelong love of gritty street shows, of killer 70’s threads, and muscle cars. So when Neal Mortiz asked me if I wanted to be a part of an all new Starsky & Hutch on TV, I was instantly intrigued.
"So Neal and I got the two writers I trusted most in the world to work with us, my brother Brian Gunn and my cousin Mark Gunn. They took my nascent ideas and ran with them, creating a complex storyline we’re all crazy about.
"Out of all the places that wanted to finance the pilot script, we chose Amazon. At Amazon I believed we would have the most freedom to create something that is different, challenges the audience, and that strays outside the parameters of genre from time to time."
Joe Lewis, Head of Comedy, Drama and VR at Amazon Studios added the most intellectual dad joke to the mix in his statement, saying: "Chekhov said if you have a gun in the room, it’s going to go off. We can’t wait to see what three Gunns do with Starsky & Hutch."
'Starsky & Hutch' originally starred Paul Michael Glaser and David Soul as streetwise David Michael Starsky and by-the-book Kenneth Richard “Hutch” Hutchinson respectively, and followed the two detectives as they traversed the mean streets of the fictional Bay City, California in a two-door Ford Gran Torino.
No premiere date or episode count has been announced as of yet, but with Gunn stating that his show will be "deconstruct the buddy cop show in a fun way", this is one to look forward to.
