Veronica Mars may not be the only fan-favorite TV show getting the film treatment.
Zachary Levi says he'd love to follow in Kristen Bell's' footsteps and make a Chuck movie!
"I've always thought doing a Chuck movie would be fun," Levi told us at the "A Night at Sardi's" benefit at the Beverly Hilton Hotel when asked about following the Mars movie model. "If we had just gone straight to monetizing it and selling it directly to the fans then, we might still actually be on the air."
"There's a lot of conversations that need to happen," the 32-year-old actor said of bringing the fan-favorite spy series to the silver screen. "I'm going to sit down with Josh Schwartz and Chris Fedak and just kind of gauge their temperature on it. See how much they'd want to be involved. Of course, I'd only want to do it with the blessing of them, they created the show, and the blessing of Warner Bros."
As for the way in which Bell and Veronica Mars creator Rob Thomas used Kickstarter to let fans donate to the movie project, Levi said, "I've always had this passion for where content is going to come from in the future—and being able to essentially just make whatever you want and sell it directly to fans."
"I think what Kristen and Rob have done is awesome," he gushed. "I love that they care about their fans. I love that they are bringing their talents back to their fans and wanting to kind of complete the journey they never got to the first time around."
Levi added, "I will watch that movie, I can't wait to see it."
