Comic-Con: Is Quantum Leaping to the Megaplex?
Oh boy, indeed! Quantum Leap may be coming to the big screen. At the TV Guide Magazine and the Paley Center For Media's Quantum Leap retrospective (hosted by TV Guide Magazine's executive editor Craig Tomashoff) at Comic-Con on July 22, series star Scott Bakula revealed that a feature-film version of the classic 1989-1993 drama was in the works.
"Everybody talks about doing a movie," he told the cheering capacity crowd packed in to one of the San Diego convention center's main rooms, adding that Leap's creator and exec producer Donald Bellisario was "working on a script for the film." When pressed for details, Bakula—who also informed the crowd that his TNT drama Men of a Certain Age was about to begin filming its second season—said it was too soon to discuss a plot, but that it was "likely" he and costar Dean Stockwell would make appearances.
"This is what I'm known for, and it's a great show to be known for," Bakula affectionately admitted of his four seasons as time-jumping Dr. Sam Beckett. "It's a great piece of TV history."
