EW reached out to Levi for more news on the project:
“We are entering into the wild west of entertainment where essentially everybody can do what only studios could do for the last 70 years…[Kristen Bell and Rob Thomas] loved what they did with the show, and they love the connection that the fans have with it, and, to me, that’s the best thing you can have. That’s how I felt about Chuck. I love the family that we had making that show, and I love the impact and connection that we had with our fans, and that’s why I’ve always wanted to continue that journey. I went to both [executive producer] Chris Fedak and [Warner Bros. Television president] Peter Roth at the very end of the fifth season and said, ‘Hey what if we made an online movie and just sold it directly to fans? We could keep this going. It could be fun.’ Even though that was only a few years ago, we’re obviously at a different time.
All I can say at this point is that because Veronica Mars, like Chuck, is a Warner Bros. [production], and because Warner Bros. has now opened that gate, I feel confident in being able to get the same results for a Chuck movie. If Warner Bros. is game, I’ve got great ideas for what the movie would be that I’m very excited about.”
If a Chuck movie does get off the ground, would co-star Yvonne Strahovski be involved?
“I talked to Yvonne [Strahovski] maybe a month ago and said, ‘If I can get this movie made, would you be open to doing [it]? Even an online version of it?’ And she was totally game. So I know that I’ve got the cast and crew on board.”
As for his feelings on what the Veronica Mars campaign has done as far as opening up avenues for fans:
“Field of Dreams it. If you build it, they will come. You’ve got to believe that if you have something good, people will believe in it. Don’t be a douche-y celebrity. Appreciate the fact that you only have a career because they care to watch the things that you do.”
