Captain Kirk may team up on camera with The Six Million Dollar Man and a millionaire private detective.
Variety mentioned yesterday (via Cinescape) that William Shatner (Kirk), Lee Majors and Robert Wagner are all attached to an ABC movie of the week project in which they would play washed-up television action heroes.
Actionheroes Inc. is the name of the film, focused on three has-been actors who use their fame to open a private investigation firm.
The actors plan to use their experience playing fictional heroes to combat real criminals in Los Angeles.
Majors is best known for portraying the bionic superman Steve Austin on The Six Million Dollar Man; Wagner played Jonathan Hart, an amateur sleuth who worked with his journalist wife on Hart to Hart.
