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!

    I don’t care. I WANT MY HEROES MOVIE!

    *kicks and screams*

    I heard it cost less than 1 million per episode in S4, 3 million in funding is more than enough to get a movie made. I don’t think what you mentioned is the problem. The problem is that NBC knows Heroes at one point was one of the most popular shows on television for a good 3 years. I don’t think they just want to make some measly small budget movie. I think they are just holding onto the property and will reboot it years down the line just like seemingly every movie studio does with its hero franchises.

    TERRIERS!

  • marcos

    HEROES, period.

  • Kristin

    Yes and also, a third Pretender movie please!

  • IwuvDean

    I just wanna MY NAME IS EARL BACK~!

  • Stephen

    I want a Chuck movie. The ending just doesn’t sit right with me.

    Fringe does not need a movie, they wrapped it up very well IMO.

    I want Jericho and SGU to return to television, as I don’t think a movie could really wrap up either (and I’d like them both to go a little longer than two more hours).

    Not holding my breath on any of them though.

    Sorry, Murder She Wrote is next line

    ymmv

    PS: If I contribute funds does this mean I can legitimately tell chics in bars I’m a Hollywood producer?

  • Meg

    I agree with Kristin: definitely a third Pretender movie! Pretty please?

    My wishlist would also include:
    a second Firefly movie, Stargate Atlantis (WITH Torri Higginson and Paul Mcgillion – *mutters about bad casting decisions*), a La Femme Nikita reunion, Terra Nova, Earth 2, Angel, and Kyle: XY.

    I’ve been pondering My Name Is Earl too. That’s a show that was still doing pretty well when it was cancelled, none of the cast are particularly busy (and their Raising Hope guest turn suggests they still have fondness for the show), and it wasn’t particularly expensive to make either. I don’t remember it having much in the way of sets either.

    Hell, I’m surprised that NBC hasn’t tried to resurrect My Name Is Earl as a series. It was doing far better than any of NBC’s current comedies when it was cancelled.

    I heard it cost less than 1 million per episode in S4, 3 million in funding is more than enough to get a movie made.

    Nonsense. Studios don’t typically publish specific costs for series but it is generally accepted that dramas on Broadcast networks (excluding the CW which typically produces shows for cheaper) cost around 3 million dollars per episode. Especially considering that Heroes was in it’s fourth season (and older shows are typically more expensive than new ones due to salary increases), and it had a HUGE cast (which means more money was spent on salaries), and it most likely had a MASSIVE effects budget (explosions and digital effects for powers and things would certainly cost more than the effects on say a lawyer show), there is absolutely no way that Heroes cost anywhere close to 1 million per episode.

    I don’t think what you mentioned is the problem. The problem is that NBC knows Heroes at one point was one of the most popular shows on television for a good 3 years. I don’t think they just want to make some measly small budget movie. I think they are just holding onto the property and will reboot it years down the line just like seemingly every movie studio does with its hero franchises.

    While I certainly don’t disagree with this (NBC will eventually reboot the series- they would be stupid not too given the success of the Avengers, etc) I still contend that because of my earlier stated problems (availability/cost/etc) are the reason it will never happen. Claire (Hayden Panettiere- Nashville) and Sylar (Zachary Quinto- Star Trek/American Horror Story) would almost certainly be unavailable (or unwilling) to do a movie as they are both on other series or movies and how can you do a Heroes movie without either of those characters??

    BTW Zach Levi from Chuck is going to star in the Hallmark Hall of Fame tv movie that will air on April 21st.

    And I, too, want My Name is Earl back.

  • Rebecca

    They could do a movie that’s a set of short films that basically wrap up all the beloved series that ended on cliffhangers….say, 4 or 5 shows that each get 20-30 minutes. I watched the last season of Earl online last year (since I’d stopped watching back when it originally aired and felt guilty about it) and found it to end with them not knowing whether one of Joy’s sons was Earl’s! Each network could contribute one show to wrap up in a short film.

  • JacobYates

    Terra Nova and Alcatraz movies!

  • Amy

    @SR A walk on role is a joke. Anyone else would be paid as an extra. They’re actually saving money by offering fans a walk on role and having them work for free.

  • Misha Lauenstein

    Pan Am, Bent and Buffalo Bill.

  • davie

    I would instantly pay for a Chuck or Fringe movie…but to be fair they both had Final Seasons/ Series Finales. But theres enough story for both

    I’ve been waiting for Universal to make a Heroes movie forever. That definitely tops my list.

    Alphas a close second. V was canceled too without an ending. A Freaks and Geeks follow up would be interesting.

  • HalCapone

    I’m keeping my fingers crossed for a Work It movie.

  • John

    Well, what about Buffy? Cause that would be great! :D

  • ProViewerShipNumbers

    The “industry” only cares about those who live in a Nielsen Media Research household!

    I hate Chuck and the name Chuck!

    What would have happened if NBC aired Chuck for seven consecutive days? What would happen if CBS aired The Good Wife [non-dvr series high in the 14 million range] for seven consecutive days?
