While promoting her upcoming stand-up gig, Jessica Hynes has mentioned that, while nothing is planned, if Edgar and Simon were game, she would be very happy to do a Spaced movie.

From Chortle:

QUOTE
When asked if there was any chance of any more episodes, she said: ‘Strangely, I’ve just been emailing Simon and, you never know, nothing’s out of the question. I loved playing Daisy, so who knows?’

And of the movie she added: ‘If Simon and Edgar were up for it, I definitely would be. So there you go, I’m putting that out there. I would be very up for doing a Spaced movie.

‘How great would that be! Why not? Let’s do it!’

Didn't someone [on stage] at the BFI event say that a film wouldn't work, because the thing about Spaced was that it bought the big screen feel to the small screen, and that on the big screen the impact of that effect would be lost? (or something of that ilk?).

It will be interesting to see what they come up with, should something go ahead, but at the same time I'm also in the "time's really move on now" camp.

I seem to recall something along those lines, yes. And I'm ditto re: a movie.

Kind of like what they did with This Life +10? I'd really prefer that they didn't bother.

I think I agree.

As much as I love Spaced, I think it's time has been and gone. Adding to it may just spoil the over all greatness of the show, if the movie/hour special turns out to be crap.

We should just cherish it for what it is and leave it at that.

How could a Spaced movie/hour special be crap?
... How? ....
And once you've explained yourself there, how is that going to spoil the overall greatness of the show? ... Spaced is better than that.
If edgar wright submitted an hours footage of a turd on a shovel to channel 4 (with ad breaks) and called it Spaced, is that really going to affect your love of the show (the original show... not the turd on a shovel)?

I'd really love to see more.

I know every thing has it's cut of point. They always said it was 3 series. That was enough for Father Ted, Bottom, Black Books,...

The second series of Spaced was broadcast 7 years ago - the characters (and actors) are older. They would have moved on, so a special just wouldn't be Spaced as we know it. How about this : Tim's a successful Comic Book artist, Daisy's a 'proper' journalist, Mike owns a Security Firm operating in Iraq, Brian's a respected artist, Twist finally got a job in fashion, and Marsha (cirrhosis) and Tyres (overdose) are both dead. Sound good to you?

In that case, why was there such outrage about a US remake? By your argument, no matter how utterly shite it would have been, it wouldn't have tarnished the reputation of the original.

Regardless of the quality of the final product I think the main problem with the remake was the disrespect actually shown toward the creators, the initial declaration that they were somehow backing the idea when they weren't and the complete disregard of Jessica Hyne's involvement in the original.

Good point, and I know that's a large part of it, but I suspect the main reason for many people's outrage was that there was a fairly good chance it would be pants.

Aye - it was mainly the shitty way that Jess, Simon et al were treated, but also a certain protectiveness of a show I love a lot being turned into something less than its name deserved that caused my annoyed-ness. I realise that's somewhat silly, but was how I felt nonetheless. smile.gif
