Will the Dead Like Me Movie follow on from the series, or a new “one off” film based on the Dead Like Me idea.
This is a hard question to answer. Why? Well…
If the show follows from the series, it will be almost impossible for new people to understand the film. This is a big down for MGM, who want to make as much money as possible.
If the show does not mention ANYTHING from the series, and follows no leads, it will be a big disappointment for current Dead Like Me fans.
(A good possibility is the way firefly and serenity was handled. Although not a fan of firefly, serenity was a good film, with a beginning, a middle, and an end. It was also reported to answer many questions left open when the series was cancelled)
This really is a question that can only be answered by MGM and the writers.
