Zachary Levi says Chuck movie is ‘still his goal’

February 7th, 2021 by Marc Comments

One of the best TV shows to show love to us Nerds in recent memory has to be Chuck.

The series saw a lovable everyman, Chuck Bartowski, played by the equally lovable Zachary Levi, download a government database into his head, making him an instant superspy who went on weekly adventures with his handlers Casey (Adam Baldwin) and Sarah (Yvonne Strahovski) and his best friend Morgan (Joshua Gomez) and it was so much fun.

Full of nods, in-jokes and love for all the things we adore, Chuck is essential viewing if you haven’t already seen it.

And we have spent some time with the cast recently, from a fun meet-up (here) to a cast reading during the first lockdown (here) but it seems that, if he gets his way – and we hope he does – Levi wants a movie to finish off the Chuck story:

In the series we faced a bitter-sweet ending with Chuck and Sarah finally getting together before Sarah lost all memories of their relationship and it closed on the duo ambiguously looking off into the sunset… come what may.

And while it’s a fairly satisfactory ending, the tease that there’s more out there? Well, that’s a tantalising thought for anyone who ever went on the journey with these wonderful characters.

The idea that Shazam! star Levi is still pushing for a movie gives us some hope… now, let’s see if this snowball can’t gather momentum.

And Chuck fans in the house? Let me know your thoughts, gang…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
