jericho-011509The twice-canceled CBS drama Jericho isn’t dead yet.  Executive producer Jon Turteltaub tells iFMagazine that there is a theatrical movie based on the short-lived TV series in development.

…the big news is Turteltaub’s company is currently hatching a potential feature film version of the TV show.

“We’re developing a feature for JERICHO,” says Turteltaub. “It would not require you to have seen the TV show, but it get into life after an event like this on a national scale. It would be the bigger, full on American version of what’s going on beyond the town in Jericho.”

Asked about whether the cast would return, Turteltaub exclaimed “Oh yeah!”.  If the project got the green light, Turteltaub expects an adequate budget: “Anything would be a huge budget compared to what we were dealing with,” he adds. “If we had $40 million dollars to make a movie with, that’s 20 times more than we did before.”

The CW is currently airing Jericho repeats on Sunday night’s.  Catch the show all over again at 7:00pm.
