Starsky, Hutch & Snoop Huggy Dog.

Byline: JENNY McQUAILE

SEVENTIES cop favourites Starsky and Hutch are on their way back, but this time they're in a Hollywood film.

The movie has an all-star cast and is set to be next year's big hit when it is released in March. The adaptation of the telly show takes place in the fictional Bay City in present times.

It's the original story of how the two guys got together. Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson star as the cop duo who race around the city in a bright red hot rod Torino and report to their never-happy boss Captain Dobey.

Huggy Bear, played by Snoop Dogg, is the duo's flamboyant street informant while Carmen Electra will play Hutch's girlfriend.

Juliette Lewis is also set to appear.

She said she's excited and added: "Vince Vaughn is incredible as the smarmy villain. I play his girlfriend Kitty."

Stiller has said he wants to "update" the show, which has reportedly upset the original Hutch, David Soul.
