Beginning Dec. 13, the current production will begin principle photography on an episode titled "Hookman," based closely on the Emmy Award-winning episode of the same name from the original series. The remake will use locations from the 39-year-old episode, the network said.

The current series' executive story editor, Joe Halpin, wrote the teleplay for the upcoming episode and consulted with the original's writers, Rod Baker and Glen Olson, CBS said.

"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, executive producer of the current incarnation of "Hawaii Five-0," 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 new show, now in its third season, stars Alex O'Loughlin, Scott Caan, Daniel Dae Kim, Grace Park and Masi Oka.
