Tom Selleck to return for fifth Jesse Stone movie.

CBS has ordered a fifth installment in the Jesse Stone film series. Jesse Stone is a character from the novels of legendary crime writer Robert B. Parker (best known for Spenser).

Tom Selleck plays Jesse Stone, the chief of Police of a small town.

The new film will be entitled “Jesse Stone: Thin Ice.”
Jesse (Selleck) finds that his job is in jeopardy after the attempted murder of State Police Capt. Healy (Stephen McHattie), his close friend and colleague; he also attempts to solve a kidnapping case that was supposed to have been solved years ago.

Sounds like he has a lot on his plate.

Filming will begin, in Nova Scottia, later this summer. No date as been set for airing.
