"Hawaii Five-0" is remaking one of the original series most famous episodes, the 1973 classic "Hookman."

“We at 'Hawaii Five-0' hold the original series in reverence, and to be able to go to their well of incredible storytelling is such an honor,” Peter Lenkov, 'Hawaii Five-0' executive producer, said in a statement. "Aside from updating a few sign-of-the-times elements, we are using the original as a roadmap to stay true to each and every element that made 'Hookman' such a beloved hour of television, even going so far as to secure the same locations used in the original episode.”

The original "Hookman" episode told the story of a double amputee who set out to get revenge against the cops -- McGarret included -- who were responsible for the loss of his hands. Peter Weller, who played the title character in "Robocop" and recently appeared as Stan Liddy in Season 5 of "Dexter," will direct the episode and star as the villain.

Check out a clip from the original "Hookman" episode below:

"Hawaii Five-0" airs Monday nights at 10 p.m. ET on CBS. Production is set to begin on the "Hookman" remake December 13.
