Don’t count out that Chuck movie yet! The much-loved NBC show may have long since ended, but fans haven’t given up hope on one day seeing a movie adaptation of the series. It’s something that the star of the show, Zachary Levi, is still desperately trying to make happen.
Speaking with EW, Zachary Levi stated that he’s still having meetings over the potential Chuck
“I’d love to do it. As far as I know, I’m the only person who’s affiliated with the show that’s been trying to make it happen on some level. I’ve had meetings with various people. There’s just so many moving parts. The answer is I’d love to still make it happen, even if it’s 10 years down the line. Because of the world, it could still be plausible. It’s just difficult. Warner Bros. has the rights to it, I don’t have a script. And in order to get the rights, I need to probably get a script, but in order to get the script, I need to pay a writer, but if I’ve got to find the money then in order to get the money, I need to make sure I have the rights. It’s like a Catch-44. [Laughs] I went to the whole cast years ago and said, “If I ever get a movie together, would you do it?” And everyone was like, “We’re totally in.” A lot of people have asked if we could do another season and there’s no way we could do another season. But I think that Chuck as a premise totally works to go do movies here and there. It’s a goofy American Bond. We had our baddies of the week, we can have baddies of the movie. You add a little bit more money, a little bit more time, maybe go shoot in some actual international destinations, you make a fun 90-minute movie, and release it online. I think we can do that, but there’s a lot of moving parts and I’m the only one who’s trying to get all the moving parts together. So, we’ll see.”
In an age where reboots and revivals are the hot topic in Hollywood, we think Chuck is primed and ready to make an impact on the big screen. Chuck’s fanbase is loyal and passionate, moreso in an age where Netflix has only bolstered its popularity. If there was a time for the show to make a comeback, now is that time.
The show enjoyed huge fan support throughout its five-season run. After reports of cancellation emerged during the shows second season, fans campaigned desperately to keep the show on the air. In the end, it managed to survive, thanks to a sponsorship deal with Subway (The sandwich makers).
We’d love to see it happen. As a huge fan of the show, more Chuck can only be a good thing.
