It looks like the Veronica Mars Kickstarter project that began just yesterday has been a rousing success.  Could a Chuck movie now be a possibility? Star Zachary Levi has apparently been watching the Veronica Mars Kickstarter saga unfold and sent out this cryptic tweet yesterday....


So would you fund a Chuck movie? Is it even a viable idea? Cast your vote below and tell us what other canceled TV shows you would plunk $10 down to see resurrected on the big screen in the comments!

    A Firefly movie would be great, but there are one too many reasons that will keep it from happening, two of which are:

    1. Budget. It’s a sci-fi show, so the budget will be huge, just like Firefly. They can get maximum 10m from kickstarter and that’s not enough.

    2. Actors. Some of them have changed quite a lot (especially Nathan) and some others wouldn’t be able to come back because of the ending of Firefly.

    I don’t even know why you’d vote for any of the other options. How can it annoy you that a movie you have no interest in, will never see and will likely forget even exists was made?

    If all involved are interested and they can get the fans to fund it, go for it, whatever show it is.

    Exactly. This is just for getting the budget money together–which is a huge hurdle indie filmmakers have encountered for decades. But it is still only one of them before a film can be made.

    Not necessarily. CGI has helped the indies out a lot. I can think of at least two fan-made Star Trek: TOS series that got George Takei and Walter Koenig back as older versions of their Trek characters. One of them was able to make an arrangement with Paramount for their series as long as they didn’t profit from it. And that one doesn’t look half-bad.

    Also, you have series like “Sanctuary,” which began online (Guest star Peter Wingfield also did another online series called “10,000 Days”). The show Supernatural had a short Ghostfacers spinoff that was essentially a full episode filmed and aired as ten short segments. Also, the show’s crew did an online horror series called “Divine,” that had recurring star Misha Collins in a supporting role. You can find a lot of these shows on YouTube. So, it is doable.

    As for ageing actors, hey, we all age. But the good thing about Fillion and Torres is that they’ve both been on their own shows the past few years. So, people know what they look like now and it’s not likely to be a turnoff. Not that either one looks bad.

    I would be willing to give $100 or more for a Stargate movie! Chuck got a proper ending, Stargate Atlantis & Stargate Universe didn’t. I would also be willing to back V, Dollhouse, Heroes and a lot of other shows which sadly never got a real ending…
