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.
