One day, they'll say, "It all started with Veronica Mars."
Who, you ask? Chuck fans, that's who!
Zachary Levi took to his Twitter on Wednesday to congratulate VMars' Kristen Bell and creator Rob Thomas on reaching (AND surpassing) their Kickstarter goal:
He then quickly followed up with this:
Now it looks like Chuck fans' patience may indeed pay off! In a recent interview, Zachary opened up about his attempts to bring the small screen show to the big screen after its fifth season cancellation:
“I went to both [executive producer] Chris Fedak and [Warner Bros. Television president] Peter Roth at the very end of the fifth season and said, ‘Hey what if we made an online movie and just sold it directly to fans? We could keep this going. It could be fun.'"
Though this evidently didn't happen, perhaps now is the right time.
“All I can say at this point is that because Veronica Mars, like Chuck, is a Warner Bros. [production], and because Warner Bros. has now opened that gate, I feel confident in being able to get the same results for a Chuck movie,” he says, adding that he could imagine them using avenues other than Kickstarterfor fund-raising. “If Warner Bros. is game, I’ve got great ideas for what the movie would be that I’m very excited about.”
You heard it, Chucksters! Keep those fingers crossed!
