No Xena Movie - Rob Tapert Interview

Well we all kind of figured this was going to happen (or more to the point not happen) but now Rob has confirmed it. There will be NO Xena movie (at least not with Lucy and Renee in the roles).

Brent Hartinger interviewed Rob and sent me a note to alert me to his interview.

Exclusive: Xena Movie “Just Won’t Happen,” Says Creator Rob Tapert

Posted on 21 April 2009 by Brent Hartinger, Editor

Rob Tapert, the co-creator of television’s Xena: Warrior Princess, has given up hope that there will ever be a feature film version of the classic show, at least not any time soon or starring series leads Lucy Lawless and Renee O’Connor.

“It’s something that just won’t happen,” Tapert told TheTorchOnline.com in an exclusive interview. “I don’t think it’s going to happen for Lucy and Renee. In twenty years or ten years, in some amount of years, like McGyver, like Charlie’s Angels, it [could] happen like that [with other actresses].”
