A "reliable insider" at ABC said preliminary talks were circulating about creating a reboot of J.J. Abrams hit spy series "Alias," according to an E! Online report.
At this point, there's no word whether original stars Jennifer Garner, Michael Vartan and Victor Garber would be involved in any remake, or even whether Abrams would return (he's currently working on the new spy drama "Undercovers" for NBC).
Vartan, present star of TNT's medical drama "HawthoRNe", weighs in on the "Alias" reboot buzz.
"I've heard rumors here and there," Vartan tells Zap2it. "I really do not know anything. It's such a rumor, quote, unquote, that I haven't even bothered calling anyone that was even loosely associated with the show in the past to find out if there's any validity to the story.
"I think it's a total rumor, but if they do redo it, and they don't bring back the original cast, that would be weird. I was talking about this with someone the other day -- it's one thing to do 'Charlie's Angels' all over again with a brand-new cast, because obviously enough time's passed.
