Closing in on
‘Five-0’ film

Though it's still a ways from beginning production, "Hawaii Five-0," the film, is alive.

Roger Towne, who wrote the script for "The Natural" and was the original writer of the Al Pacino film, "The Farm,' is working with producer George Litto in shopping a treatment for the big screen transfer of the series "Hawaii Five-0."

Litto, and the widow of show creator Leonard Freeman prevailed in a 21-month arbitration battle with CBS over film rights to the story about the island adventures of no-nonsense cop Steve McGarrett, played by Jack Lord from 1968 to 1980.

"It's a major franchise," Litto said last week. "It's the kind of television show that became part of the fabric of society. McGarrett became the symbol, the epitome of the tough, honest, dedicated cop."

Litto said the film's budget is in the $50 million to $70 million dollar range.The story would be international in scope, says Litto, who wrote the script with Avery Duff. They will be looking for actors to play the president of the United States, premiere of Japan, and leaders of Pacific Rim countries including China and Australia.

Yamaguchi visits the Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion Plant at Keahole Point, Hawaii. Using the fresh lobster raised at the plant, Yamaguchi will prepare "Kona Cold Lobster with a Spicy Mango Sauce." He will be joined by Chef Evan Kleiman. 7:30 p.m., KHET/PBS.
