Jamie Foxx Confirms Miami Vice Rumors
Source: Latino Review October 2, 2004


Latino Review got a chance to talk to Ray star Jamie Foxx, who confirmed he will be working together soon again with his Ali and Collateral director Michael Mann.

Foxx says that Universal Pictures is moving forward with its big screen adaptation of hit '80s cop drama Miami Vice, which starred Don Johnson and Philip Michael Thomas. Previously it was reported that Mann would write, direct, and produce the film.

Now Foxx adds that he's attached to star as Detective Ricardo Tubbs, played by Michael Thomas in the series. "Yeah man, it's happening," he told the site. He was also asked if Mann was still doing the project and he replied, "hopefully he will."

Cool. If Mann actually directs, it won't turn into a crappy tough-in-cheek campy reunion.

That being said, I never watched a single episode of Miami Vice.

Will it be set in the 80's or 21st century?

It will take place in the 23rd century.

I think it would be best if it happened in the 21st century and was about a different set of cops. Perhaps a cameo by Don Johnson or Edward James Olmos would be in order, but that would be it.

Basically, take the approach that Shaft '00 did and make it another entry in a series as opposed to a flat out re-make.

You know...and I'm being serious here, I knew it was only a matter of time before Mann would do this (even though it's still a little unclear if Mann wants to get involved) - I've always had a feeling he would want Vice on the big screen and that it was only a matter of time (even if I do eat my own words).

I myself am not too sure about this but who the hell knows, It could work.

Nobody can match Don Johnson and Phillip Michael Thomas.


Are they going to cast Ashton Kutcher as Don Johnson?

I'm not a big fan of Taye Diggs, but I think he would've been a better choice for the role of Tubbs. Nothing against Jamie Foxx.

If they do make this, they need to set it in the 80's. The drug/cop world was different back then. The 80's is what made MV. It is like Scarface, it has to be set in the 80's, or else it seems like just another cop/drug tv series.

Same here. I never watch MV, but I still don't want to see it remade as a comedy.

Universal Pictures is zeroing in on Colin Farrell (Alexander) to star as Det. James "Sonny" Crockett, and the studio is in talks with Jamie Foxx (Ray) to star as Det. Ricardo Tubbs in the big screen adaptation of hit '80s cop drama Miami Vice.

Michael Mann, who executive produced the NBC show, is in negotiations to write, produce, and direct the feature film. Anthony Yarkovich, creator of the TV series, will executive produce the movie.

The original series, which ran from 1984-89, starred Don Johnson as Crockett and Philip Michael Thomas as Tubbs




this is good news

Charlie Goose
02-15-05, 11:17 AM
I hope it's updated, the 80s soundtrack and jacket sleeves rolled up to the elbow would be too cheesy.
Farrell was in another adaptation, S.W.A.T., which totally rocked.

Dr. DVD
02-15-05, 11:29 AM
I have faith in Mann to deliver the goods, and he has stated that it will be updated as doing an 80s re-hash would be too cheesy. I do hope Mann tries to give the movie a soundtrack full of hot hits though, since that was one of the show's trademarks.
However, they MUST keep the original theme!

EDIT: Also, any chance of them explaining how Crockett and Tubbs were able to go undercover in the Miami underground so often and not get recognized by someone evetually?

There was a script review of this a while back which made it sound like "Heat 2: Miami." A crime epic like Heat, jammed with detail, but with the focus on the drug trade. It seemed to imply there would be a helluva lotta gun-obsession in the story, too, which will hopefully translate into another shootout as good as the one in Heat. And you know Mann is going to have atmosphere to burn. I cannot wait to see this film. Bad Boys 2 and Fastlane were poor substitutes. I bet the Vice film will play it more seriously and somehow end up much hipper in the long run.

People magazine and the Colin Farrell Fansite have a first look at Colin Farrell in character on the Long Beach, California set of Universal Pictures' big screen Miami Vice adaptation. Michael Mann (Collateral) wrote and is directing the action-drama which hits theaters on July 28, 2006.

Farrell plays Det. James "Sonny" Crockett and Jamie Foxx is Det. Ricardo Tubbs in the movie version of the '80s cop drama. The original series starred Don Johnson as Crockett and Philip Michael Thomas as Tubbs.

Long Beach, California?? Miami Vice had a lot of characters, but one of it's most important ones was Miami. Maybe this is an indication of it being set in the 80s as Miami has changed tremendously since then? But I've never been to Long Beach so what do I know...

I never like Fast Lane there was too much action for me and not enough drama. It was like a cop show on Red Bull. NYPD Blue and The Shield are about my pace.

You're right. I'd much rather have a terrible tv show produced by McG then a new crime film set in Miami with some good actors and a great director at the helm.

The only reason I think most people hate tv show (or movie) remakes is because a lot of them suck ass. Considering the director, writer, and actors, this has potential to be a good film. I guess I could clamor for them to just create a new idea, but I guess I don't care that much. If it's good, it's good. And with Mann doin it, it very well might be.

I can bet the soundtrack is going to suck.

50 Cent, the Game, or some Nelly crap will be played.


I know for sure they are not going to use any Peter Gabriel, U2, Depeche Mode, Phil Collins, etc since they won't appeal to the people expected to go see this movie.

I got the Miami Vice LPs too and they kick ass.

I like the song by the Damned on the 2nd LP.

They played it when Tubbs went undercover as a prisoner in the episode with Laurence Fishbourne in the 3rd season.

Does anyone know why Jan Hammer stopped making the music during the 4th and 5th season?

He composed most of the music in the 4th season and none in the final 5th season.


Did the producers fire him or did he decide he wanted to move on?


When he left that is when the show went truly downhill.

UK paper Daily Mail reported that Jammie Foxx just approved the casting of Chinese star Gong Li to the big screen adaptation of Miami Vice. Gong came to the attention of director Michael Mann after joined the cast of Memoirs Of A Geisha. It is still unknown what role she has been offered with but the paper says she will have "a major role in the movie version" of the television series. The principal shooting is set to begin this summer.
