It been 10 years since the lovable Geek Next Door turned Spy, Chuck Bartowski, debuted on CBS in Chuck. During the shows 5 year run, it quickly became a fan favorite, especially due to the charisma of the man who played Chuck, Zachary Levi. It seems the actor loved the show just as much as fans did too, as he revealed he has been trying to get a Chuck movie developed.
While the show has been off the air since 2012, Chuck has maintained popularity with the help of Netflix and fans are dying to see what happened after that ambiguous finale. As a result, rumors have circulated about a possible theatrical adaptation or continuation of the series.
In an interview with EW to celebrate the shows 10-year anniversary, Levi was asked if there was any update on a possible Chuck movie being in the works.
“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,” Levi said. “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.”
Despite this, Levi stated that there are a lot of hurdles that would have to be overcome before the dream can even be contemplated as a reality. Currently, Warner Bros. has the rights to the property, but in order to obtain the rights to Chuck, he’d need to have a script. He goes on to detail the issue that he needs to know he has the rights in order to be able to sign on a writer that would write the script.
On the positive side, the actor stated that when he went to the cast years ago and asked if they’d do a movie, if he was ever able to get one together, that they were all on board.
