(Hawaii News Now) - Longtime fans may recognize the Hawaii Five-0 "Hookman" episode from 1973, in which an amputee with prosthetic hooks carries out a deadly vendetta against HPD. The show actually won an Emmy for music composition. Peter Weller, of "Robocop" fame, is playing the villain. Executive producer Peter Lenkov says his version will remain true to the original--but will still have a modern feel.
