Vince Vaughn to star in Rockford Files movie

Vince Vaughn will take on the role made famous by James Garner in a big screen adaptation of the TV show The Rockford Files.

According to Deadline, David Levien and Brian Koppelman have been tasked by Universal Pictures to pen the feature as a vehicle for Vaughn (who will also produce).

The show ran from 1974-1980, and concerned fast-talking private-eye/ex-con Jim Rockford. NBC was considering rebooting the show, with Dermot Mulroney in the lead, but pulled the plug last year.

Discuss: Is Vaughn a good fit for Rockford?
