The moment that we saw a Kickstarter for a “Veronica Mars” movie reach its $2 million budget goal within the span of less than a day, you knew that this was coming: the buzz surrounding “Chuck” potentially doing the same way. The similarities between the two shows are palpable: like with the Kristen Bell series, “Chuck” had an extremely devoted following, and it had to fight for its life to really stay alive for as long as it did. The show was finally ushered off with a series finale that aired in early 2012, but even with having some sort of formal send-off, millions of Chucksters around the world are still clamoring for more.
So is there still a story to be told here? Definitely. The ending of the show was rather ambiguous, as Chuck promised Sarah that he would help her to regain all of the memories that she lost after having the intersect in her head. Everyone wants to assume that there is some sort of happy ending there, but wouldn’t be nice to see a little bit more of it?
With that in mind, series star Zachary Levi posted a message on Twitter that suggests that there are still some reasons for fans to be optimistic about a “Chuck” movie that could be made down the road:
“[To] you Chucksters, believe that this news only bolsters my faith that I can help bring you a
#ChuckMovie. Be patient. Stay tuned.”
So could a movie for this show really happen? It’s not going to be nearly as easy as it was for “Veronica Mars,” mostly because this is an action-oriented show that will require a much larger budget. As for making sure the actors would all be interested, that doesn’t seem to be as much of a problem. Yvonne Strahovski (arguably the busiest of the bunch) referenced the show a few days ago on Twitter, so obviously the interest is still there. Ryan McPartlin, otherwise known as Captain Awesome, has also announced online that he would be all for coming back.
