Heroes: NBC Wrap-up Movie Plans Cancelled [Report]

Heroes movieSorry, Greg Grunberg. It turns out that Ali Larter might just be right. It seems that the Heroes wrap-up movie isn’t happening.

As fans know all too well, after NBC cancelled Heroes in May, there was talk about wrapping up the TV show’s storylines as either a movie or a mini-series. Despite the fact that some time had passed, series creator Tim Kring recently indicated he was still optimistic.

He said, “It looks like we’re really going to start talking about it now. The summer months in television are always about preparing for the Fall launch of all the new shows, so I totally understand why there hasn’t been a lot of discussion [until now]. Once the Fall season is launched, I fully believe that this discussion will get reignited in a very big way.”

Now, according to EW sources, NBC isn’t going ahead with the project, at least for the 2010-11 season. However, that may not be the end of the Heroes universe. Kring believes that the show’s broad premise allows for many different stories to be told in many different ways.

What do you think? If not onscreen, how would you like to see Heroes continue — as books, comics, animation, web shorts, or in some other form?

    A movie to tie things up. LOL…..look up Joss Whedon- See what happened to Firefly. Oh and Dead like me’s Bryan Fuller. Both of these shows took two years or little over to get done. One was good, the other mediocre. See what those two producers went through to get closure on their shows. Screw NBC (and Universal for what they’re going to do to Netflix) there’s other outlets to watch. Some with entire series on hand. No waiting for the next episode. No commercials or ads. And the ones I can think of are less then $10.00 a month. Watch on your phone-tablet-PC-whatever you like. whenever you like. What are you paying for cable or Satellite?
