‘Pushing Daisies’ Movie: Bryan Fuller Reveals Zombie Plot?
Though the Kickstarter fanfare of the ‘Veronica Mars‘ movie seems to have died down, Bryan Fuller‘s cancelled ABC dramedy ‘Pushing Daisies‘ remains along the frontrunners for fan-funded film treatment. When last we heard, the ‘Hannibal‘ showrunner worried the prospect might prove too expensive, but new reports about the potential film’s plot might just prove why a ‘Pushing Daisies’ movie would be difficult to get off the ground. See how ‘Pushing Daisies’ meets ‘The Walking Dead‘ inside!
Thought it may have seemed a pipe dream even a few short months ago, ‘Pushing Daisies’ fans have long dreamed of a day wherein the 2007 Bryan Fuller series picked up after its 2009 cancellation, and followed through on a movie. Fuller recently floated the possibility after the success of the ‘Veronica Mars’ Kickstarter, though had admitted the prospect would prove a bit more expensive than Mars’ $2 million goal.
Even so, Den of Geek recently had a chance to speak with the producer, wherein Fuller surprisingly revealed what he envisioned as the plot of a potential ‘Pushing Daisies’ movie:
If we were able to pull off the Kickstarter, there’s a very fun zombie film that starts with a flash-flood in a cemetery and basically is about those denizens of that cemetery having to kill Ned before he can kill them, so it’s a different kind of zombie movie.
Fans of the series will remember that the series focused on Ned (Lee Pace, ‘Guardians of the Galaxy‘s newest addition), who found himself with the magical ability to return the deceased to life with a single touch, while a second touch would kill them once more.
What say you? Would you still want to see a ‘Pushing Daisies’ movie if Kickstarter provided the funds? What would you like the final adventures of Ned and Chuck to be?
