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!

    @Red Jane I miss Life too, but the show got a great finale, so I’m just as happy to let it lie.

    Community Movie (But need to wait until the end of season 6)

    Pushing Daisies needs to be made a movie! We need closure!
    These are my priorities for tv series made movies:
    1_Pushing Daisies.
    2_Chuck
    3_Fringe
    4_TSCC
    5_Dollhouse

    Chuck, Fringe and Dollhouse had nice endings, but their finales also open endless possibilities for movies, with Chuck being the one that offers the more with its ending. But Pushing Daisies has to be the next, there was no real resolution there

    A Harry’s Law movie would be nice. I’d be fine for Pushing Daisies getting a film as well. Oh, and Deadwood or Carnivale.

    I’m waiting for some “V” news. Hate how ABC cancelled it with a cliffhanger. Would be good to see Erica getting revenge after she finds out what happened to her son. Real Lisa escaping from the ship. Etc. etc.

  • rashomon

    The woman is 32, and it shows. Are they gonna make her resume her role of a high school teenager ? That would be ridiculous. Or is this prospective movie maybe a “x years later…” thing ?

  • intexor

    I think the only way 24 can still have a movie is through this kind of funding, the only problem being that they probably need to raise 20 to 30 times what Veronica Mars did to make it look decent.

    @SR:

    There is not a huge fan base for Chuck. If there was it would never have been canceled. I still have yet to see the show in reruns on any channel. It seems to me, that if Chuck had a huge fan base, that Chuck would be on television in syndication on a consistent basis somewhere. Surely, no cable channel would turn down the gem that Chuck was. Chuck’s fan base maybe loud, but it certainly isn’t large.

    Hell, even Til Death has found its way on television via syndication. How truly small must Chuck’s audience be if it can’t find a consistent landing spot on TV and yet Til Death can? I scanned the cable schedule and Chuck is nowhere to be found.

    People need to stop treating their favorite show like it’s their first born. It is nothing but a television show, you don’t need to defend the show til the end of time. And you sure as heck don’t need to get hyper-sensitive about any show and overreact to comments about said show.

    This is the internet. People with a thin skin need not apply.

  • battye

    I agree with Bitter Ringer Fan, one show that definitely deserves a movie is American Dreams!

  • theCroup

    @rashomon It says on the funding page and pretty much every article written about the funding page that the movie picks up at her 10 year high school reunion.

    @Moose VM had an estimated 3 million viewers (and that’s by generous estimates) and they’re getting a movie this way. Chuck is a more recently canceled show that had many more viewers than Veronica Mars. Veronica Mars had bad ratings even by the low standards of UPN/CW.

    And what would pick up for syndication indicate? Chuck fans have been begging for more new episodes, not a syndication deal. No one is measuring the fanbase by looking at syndication demands. People who liked the show have already downloaded it or bought it on DVD or get it off netflix. I’m not even a Chuck fan (in fact, I would leave the room when my roommates would watch it) but that fanbase rallied to keep their show on the air and would probably be rabid givers if offered a chance to help fund a movie.

    @rashomon…veronica wasn’t even in high school when the show ended, she had gone to college…you must not have watched the show.

    personally, i like veronica mars, but it’s sad how quickly the movie got 2 million when these people probably wouldn’t haven’t given that much to a better cause like trying to cure cancer, fight hunger, help build a house for someone who has lost theirs or several other more worthy causes…i need my money too badly to give it to fund some movie that i would like to see, but can live without…jmo

    @Anthony
    I’d love a Buffy movie, too, with the original tv cast – but SMG would never do it. Without her, there’s no point.

  • theCroup

    @s0303 You know nothing about anybody’s money situation. For all you know these people give plenty to charity and also pay plenty to keep themselves entertained.

    I’m so tired of seeing comments like that, especially on an entertainment posting board. Couldn’t you be spending your time volunteering to raise money to cure cancer, fight hunger or help build a house for someone who lost theirs or some other worthy cause? Oh, wait, that’s what you spend most of your afternoons doing and if you want to spend some time entertaining yourself, it’s your business? Oh, sorry, it was just my opinion.

  • mr2686

    I would love to see a Chuck movie, and for those that think it doesn’t have a large fan base, well…you’re just plain wrong.
    Anyway, I’d be for any show that can get the money from the fans to fund the project. Heroes, Pushing Daisies, another Firefly. Just keep ‘em coming.

  • thensnowleopard

    @Dude

    Oh, I dunno. Maybe because people liked it?

    The thing people are forgetting here is that not all projects with fans are still viable. All Kickstarter takes care of is the basic budget. You still have to get cast and crew on board, and you still have to find a distributor. Yes, you can put it online, but you’d still need a way for that to make money. Serenity indicated there’s a market out there for Firefly sequels. Some of these other shows, not so much.

    Kickstarter doesn’t do it all. It’s just another way of getting funding for indie projects.

  • BeBe

    They should do for Community #SixSeasonsAndAMovie

  • sam

    please bring back amanda seyfried

  • Chibgchong

    Please for the love of god yes just give me an accept that I can send all my pay to automatically!
    A Veronica mars movie is awesome but a chuck movie would be a dream come true.
    I think chuck could easily be funded afterall it’s well known that chucks fanbase was one of the most supporting ones out there.

    And for any of you saying they don’t need a movie because it got a ending, smd it was not an ending. I NEED TO KNOW THAT SARAH GOT HER MEMORY BACK!!!
    open endings are horrible :(

  • tomko44

    @thensnowleopard Completely true! The only reason for the Kickstarter is that all the parties involved want to do the project and have a script and schedule to work with. Kickstarter gives them the seed money needed to pull it off. Rob Thomas had to have done a lot of work to get it to this stage. Especially getting WB to pay for marketing and distribution. This will not work for every project, but may for some.
