On and off-screen pals Owen Wilson and Ben Stiller will team up for a big picture version of the '70s television classic, Starsky & Hutch. Variety reports that Stiller will play Starsky and Wilson will play Hutch. Remember "S" plays "S." Todd Phillips, director of Road Trip, will direct and also wrote the last draft of the script. We don't know who will be playing "Huggy Bear" but I think SNL's Tracey Morgan would nail it. This makes collaboration number five for Stiller and Wilson, who shared the screen in Permanent Midnight, Meet The Parents, The Royal Tenenbaums, and Zoolander. Wilson is currently starring in the remake of I-Spy with Eddie Murphy. Starsky & Hutch is set to begin production in February.
