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.
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.
