Xena Con Report: Rob Tapert Tackles The 'Xena' Movie Rumors
Well Dogged Blog has daily been releasing the stories that went on during the Xena convention this past weekend and I recommend all the Xena fans over here head over there for a really in depth report of events. The most intriguing thing that I read, which I will talk about right now, is Rob Tapert responding to the Xena movie rumors. Here is an excerpt involving Rob Tapert's response to a Xena movie:
["Rob says they'll be doing q&a. He says the first question will probably be, "is there going to be a Xena feature"? [He] Says the people at Universal say the feature has a future, but not with Lucy and Renee and not for ten more years...[Rob] says there is interest, but he can't make any promises, but he said, "If I was a betting man, I'd say something's going to happen." "It's a matter of what's a story, what would happen, what would they do? One thing that keeps the people very interested is doing something that would enable them to it "outside the box" - computer etc. I'm only concerned with, is there a good story to tell... two hours of great entertainment."]
So its conflicted on whether a Xena movie starring Lucy Lawless and Renee O'Connor will happen as of this point. Rob Tapert obviously wants to make a movie that continues from the events of the TV show but Universal seems to want to restart the franchise. We probably will never see the return of Bruce Campbell as Autolycus. You can read the full source of the information here.
