Heroes Movie: Will it Happen?

... Will a long talked-about Heroes movie actually happen? One that can tie up loose storylines? One that can give the series a chance at redemption? One that will leave Heroes' fans with a sense of closure? Answer: No. [EW]

... Were you ready for some football!? Yes, you were very ready for some football as evidenced by last night's season opener being the most watched opener ever. Even though it was boring and both teams looked like they were in pre-season form. [Peter King's Twitter]

... Former House player Jennifer Morrison has landed on How I Met Your Mother as the latest love interest for the most boring TV character of all time, Ted Moseby. But this isn't just some fling; producers are touting Morrison's character Zooey as HUGE (in terms of importance, not girth). Could she be the titular Mother!? Obviously not. [EW]

... Glee is doing an homage to cult classic The Rocky Horror Picture Show, and producers have grabbed original Rocky cast members Meat Loaf ("Let me sleep on it, baaaaby baby!") and Barry Bostwick to guest star as TV station managers. Susan Sarandon also has expressed interest in participating. [E! Online]

... HBO's In Treatment is returning on October 25. This is one of those shows that everyone says is great and that I want to try out but never will. It needs more explosions. [Boston.com]

... Law & Order: SVU found a hot woman to play a new sexy Assistant District Attorney in Paula Patton. But then Patton got offered the lead in Mission Impossible 4, so she jumped on that. To replace her, producers found hot woman Melissa Sagemiller to play a new sexy ADA. [Deadline Hollywood]

... The Office will replace Michael Scott this season, but that doesn't necessarily mean the new boss will be the star. The current plan is to give each character the focus of their own episode, each displaying the characters' possible chances to become the new head of Dunder Mifflin. It's like a murder mystery but with more invoices for college-ruled paper. [The Live Feed]

I wouldn't mind a Heroes movie... but can't say I'm excited. I'd rather see the actors I enjoyed from the show find new shows.

Okay seriously what's with all the bad news. I really wish Heroes could tie up loose ends because now the world knows about them. Also what the f**k happened to Monica anyway?

lame...it could be at the very least a summer movie or summer mini series for NBC to air and let the people who actually still care about the fizzled out characters of Heroes some peace. but whatever...NBC can suck it anyway

Although someone mentioned Portia de Rossi and I can kinda see that, because she was brilliant in Better Off Ted. Still I think they should end with Steve though. Without him the show would just be hollow.

Why not just end The Office with Steve Carrel? He made the show for me.

The Office should just end. The new direction without Steve Carell sounds horrible.

Heroes should be an example to all upcoming writers/producers what not to do on a TV show after such a successful season one.

Hope you're right about the Office...sounds intriguing. But still hoping the original british boss will be back in a bonanza of benevolent brilliance befitting of such a bbbbb...good show.

Aren't there any plain looking cops in the L&O universe?

I was and still am a Heroes fan, and even I think a movie is a bad idea. A comic book on the other hand, that I can live with.

No Heroes film? Can you hear the collective yawn from all but about 5 people, and I liked the first series but by series 3 lost any need to watch every week. In Treatment is brilliant and designed for people that have the attention span for coping with a whole season containing no explosions! If watched half an hour every day it takes up no time at all.



Please finish The Office, by the time it finishes it will have approx. 60/40 in good episodes to bad, our original (uk) office has a 100% record, it's all good.........
