According to Entertainment Weekly, Matthew McConaghey is currently reading the script for writer/director Rawson Michael Thurber’s (Dodgeball) adaptation of Magnum P.I. and has been offered the lead.  Back in September I reported that Nic Cage was campaigning for the role, and that the adaptation would be comedic/tongue-in-cheek.

McConaghey’s casting makes sense, because Magnum P.I. is set in Hawaii, which is warm, and Matthew McConaghey seems to enjoy sweating and looking like he smells really bad.
