"Jericho" Movie in Development! Seriously!

"National Treasure" director John Turteltaub tells iF Magazine he is working on a theatrical version of the defunct CBS series "Jericho".

"We’re developing a feature for 'Jericho'. It would not require you to have seen the TV show, but it get into life after an event like this on a national scale. It would be the bigger, full on American version of what’s going on beyond the town in Jericho" says Turtletaub.

While I admit I never watched Jericho, but isn't this taking things a bit too far? After all, Jericho was originally canceled due to low ratings. It somehow got renewed for another season, but still dragged in low ratings. A movie isn't guaranteed to be any kind of box office hit. Hell, this is just going to be a repeat of the Serenity scenario.

If I were them I would make a post civil war 2 movie that happens to take place in the same universe as Jericho however doesn't include Jack or Jake or whatever, he sucks and will never be able to carry a movie.

The primary difference I see is that while Serenity's scope had to be artificially inflated because the TV show was too low-key, the same won't be true here. Jericho ended with Texas essentially declaring war on Cheyenne; that's a big story which, frankly, is better suited to a movie than a TV show anyway.

I just noticed the source, nevermind then, that site is reliable as "The Sun".

Would have preferred a season 3, but we'll see how this goes.

The basic concept and some of the characters would be fine to work into a movie or another TV series. I'm not holding my breath, tho.

ill believe it when I see it being filmed, same goes for the Arrested Development movie, and did they not learn from Serenity?
