Mark Ruffalo has confirmed that he would love to play Columbo on the big screen.

The Begin Again actor revealed his interest in starring as the much-loved TV detective in a movie adaptation during conversations on Twitter.

It started when screenwriter Gary Whitta asked the actor why a Columbo film starring him in the role, which was made famous by Peter Falk, wasn't already in the pipeline.

And Mark replied: "@garywhitta LOL. I have been working on it!"

He also said he had been approached about the idea by screenwriter Ed Soloman.

"We are thinking a movie," he tweeted.

Other Twitter users also piped up to say they thought it was a good idea and Mark and Gary started discussing the possibility of a Columbo film.

However, another tweet suggested the project doesn't look too likely.

Mark said: "It seems Universal has it and is already developing a TV show. Boo hoo."

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Taurus:

It isn't healthy to be emotionally dependent. Becoming more self reliant should be your first order of business, especially if you're in a troubled relationship. Your partner may balk at your decision to acquire new skills, get a job or accumulate property. Pay no attention to their complaints. The sooner you carve out a niche for yourself, the happier you will be. Slowly but surely, the balance of power will be restored to your union. It's time to come into your own.More
