Moonlight the Movie? Producer Says it’s Possible.

I never got into CBS’ Moonlight, their sorta supernatural cop show where the good guy (played by Alex O’Loughlin) was a vampire who solved cases involving vampires and the like. The gorgeous Sophia Myles played a Lois Lane type who starts to figure out the P.I. might be more than he’s letting on. The show got canceled after one season, but according to producer Harry Werksman, that doesn’t mean the show needs to end right there.

Werksman gave hope for the show’s legion of fans by telling SciFiWire this:

“Well, we were setting up in the end of our first season that there was a coming war. There was the family from which Coraline came, and it was a royal bloodline of vampires that Mick had been brought into, very much unwanted on his part. I think what we were going to try and do is to have the movie encapsulate the entire second season of the coming war.

“I know I talked to [the show's star Alex O'Loughlin] just a couple weeks ago, after Three Rivers got picked up, and I was congratulating him,. He’s like, ‘When are we going to do the movie?’ I said, ‘I don’t know, man. Any time you’re ready.’”

So the producer and the star wants to do it. A made-for-TV movie, perhaps? Or a feature-length film? With the current vampire craze, I don’t see why a movie version wouldn’t work. And if all else fails, they can always go the comic book route like Joss Whedon did with his Buffy and Angel properties. I’ve read the Angel comic series, and they’re actually very good.

Below: “Okay, guys, cool pose off in one, two, three!”

    I am very excited to read about Moonlight. I have read four very bad reviews online about Three Rivers. From what I read from the people reviewing it, they all predict in their own opinion that it will be the first show of the new season to get canceled. I am sorry for Alex, but maybe that will clear the way for a Moonlight to be in a movie form and or a return of the series. Moonlight was a great show and it is sadly missed. Please go to tvsquad.com and look for the poll for voting for your favorite vampire or vampie show (I can’t remember which)and vote for Moonlight. You can only vote once a day, so please get out there and vote. Moonlight is way in the lead so far.

    MOONLIGHT is ment for the BIG screen!
    If you loved MOONLIGHT–Please write to Joel Silver and Warner Brothers and ask them for a MOONLIGHT MOVIE they have the rights to the show—If we all do this we can make MOONLIGHT rise again–remember the Star Trek fans never gave up and we have it still around 40 years later! The fans made that happen! WE CAN BRING BACK MOONLIGHT TOO!

    I’m ready for the movie & hope it will begin production soon…

    What was left out in this interview is that Moonlight’s leading male star was first approached by the TV series executive producer, Joel Silver, in mid-December, 2008 about making such a movie of ML. Joel called Alex O’Loughlin via phone & asked the young actor if he was ready to make the ML movie… Alex’s reply was, “Yeah, sure, when?”…

    So if Silver gets it going I feel strongly that we can, indeed, get that Moonlight movie… and I know this movie will knock the socks of any vampire genre fan, so move over Twilight!!!!!!

      ıs there any e-mail address?

      • Dyann B

        It is best to write an actual letter–emails can be deleted and never get to the right person…letters make more of a statement as they can see you took the time to really contact them and express your views–however with Alex now having signed for HAWAII 5-0 on CBS, I’m a bit depressed wondering if he’ll have time for a MOONLIGHT movie–it seems like time is passing and we are not getting our Hearts Desire!

        • semoçka

          i don’t know.it can be difficult ’cause i’m writing from turkey. maybe the letter won’t get to the right address or person.:(

    I would love to see a Moonlight Movie. I’d bring all my friends that I’ve shared the DVD with. I’ll bring the husband, the kids, I’ll go multiple times! Great idea! It needs to be quality though. Don’t want to tarnish Mick’s image!!!
