Jericho is the TV show that won't die. It originally premiered on CBS in 2006 only to get cancelled after a handful of episodes. After the fans campaigned to have it brought back by sending the network truckloads of nuts, Jericho was given another half season. And now, episodes are being reaired on the CW, where it garners bigger ratings than critically acclaimed shows like Mad Men. According to an interview in If Magazine, producer John Turteltaub is planning to bring the series back as a big screen feature film sometime later this year.
Turteltaub stated, "It's fun to see the show won't die. We're developing a feature for Jericho. It would not require you to have seen the TV show, but it gets into life after an event like this on a national scale. It would be the bigger, full on American version of what's going on beyond the town in Jericho."
The producer confirmed that the entire cast of the series would be back for the film. And then he talks about the budget, "Anything would be a huge budget compared to what we were dealing with. If we had $40 million dollars to make a movie with, that's 20 times more than we did before."
