No Leap for Bakula

A Quantum Leap feature film or revival series have been reported or rumored so many times over the years that fans like yours truly get increasingly bitter at each new mention. Show star Scott Bakula is much more zen though. Lucky bastard.

Talking to the folks of Moviehole this week, the actor mentioned he'd sure like to see his old show be revived, but has made his peace with the fact that the show is done with him.

"I always have joked that they'll do it, but it won't be with me and Dean, you know," he offered. "Because that's just the way that Hollywood is. If they did a feature, they would recast it. And make it better." Better??? Without Dean Stockwell??? Not in a million years!

Extra Tidbit: If memory serves, Sci-Fi Channel (SyFy, sorry...) were preparing a TV movie centered on Sam's daughter, a few years ago. Wonder where that went.

If they "revived" it with the original cast I'd give it a look, otherwise not interested.

I loved this show back in the days and I don't think it should be messed with.

Besides, I thought we already had a QL rip-off called Journeyman

what if they made the show about another guy who goes back in time in order to find Sam and bring him back home?

Quantum Leap would SO work today. with shows like lost, heroes, 24, etc. the one hour drama format is definitely peaking. i've been waiting for this show to come back! PLEASE!!

Hollywood infuriates me when it comes to matters such as these. Looking at it from a business perspective, wouldn't it make sense to give the people who make it possible for your business to exist (customers/fans, etc) what they want? I can't think of a single person who would support a Quantum Leap feature without Bakula and Stockwell. Just make a feature film with them reprising their roles. Is it really that difficult???

True

It wouldn't be the same without Dean Stockwell (and Bakula for that matter)!
