Zachary Levi has hinted at a possible Chuck movie following the success of the Veronica Mars Kickstarter campaign.
A movie based on cult series Veronica Mars will enter production after fans raised the $2m target budget in less than 24 hours.
Levi – who played the title character in Chuck from 2007 to 2012 – congratulated Veronica Mars star Kristen Bell and series creator Rob Thomas on “helping move entertainment a little closer in the direction I’ve always hoped it would go”.
The actor took to Twitter to claim that the Kickstarter campaign “bolsters [his] faith” in a similarly fan-funded Chuck movie project.
Chuck co-creator Josh Schwartz also used Twitter to address the possibility of a spinoff film, joking that fans would be unable to raise the required “$120 million” budget.
Schwartz later made it clear that his first tweet was a “joke” and added that he “sincerely appreciate[s]” the ongoing support of Chuck fans.
Prior to the successful Veronica Mars campaign, Levi had previously suggested using Kickstarter to fund a Chuck movie in February 2012.
“I really want to do [the Chuck movie] Kickstarter style,” he said. “I want it to be something that the fans can all pitch in for… because we’ve always been supported and survived on our fans anyway.”
