Another day, another reboot in Hollywood. Best known for his role in CW’s Supernatural, actor Jared Padalecki is set to step into Chuck Norris’ boots for an upcoming remake of 1990s action series Walker, Texas Ranger.
The project will be written and executive produced by Anna Fricke (Valor) and executive produced by Dan Lin (Lethal Weapon).
For those unfamiliar with the original series, it follows “Cordell Walker, a man finding his way back to his family while investigating crime in the state’s most elite unit. Our broken widower and father of two returns home to Austin after being undercover for two years for a high profile case – only to discover that there’s even more work to be done at home.”
The show is being shopped around now by CBS TV Studios with the CW and CBS being the likely destination.
