Scott Bakula was at Comic-Con last month speaking to fans at the “A Leap of Faith — A Quantum Leap Retrospective” panel and told fans in attendance that there are plans for a Quantum Leap movie:
The good news is that Don [Quantum Leap creator Donald P. Bellisario] is working on the film script and has a big time Hollywood producer who wants to do it … It’s about time. But what I always thought would happen, happened … [that he’s now too old for the role]. But Dean [Stockwell, who played Al] and I will have a part in it somehow.
Don did say that as he was writing, he told me he was having trouble, ‘getting you and Dean out of my head.’ But I know he will do it.
It’s a shame this has taken so long, but it’s good news none the less.
