Retired Major Zeman to appear on the silver screen
A new film about Major Zeman, a detective from a popular Communist-era police TV series from the 1970’s, is in the works, according to the new server iDnes.cz. Script writer Josef Klíma has confirmed that he was commissioned to write a script about the retired police major, and actor Vladimír Brabec, who played the lead role in the Thirty Cases of Major Zeman series, said he has been approached about the role. The production team may have difficulty getting the permission to use the name of the character from the children of the series’ original scriptwriter and director Jiří Sequens. Recently a number of films have come out in the Czech Republic, reviving famous movie and TV personalities from the so-called normalization era.
