Tim Kring Talks About Heroes

Over at EW Online, and a few weeks after NBC cancelled the show, Tim Kring talked about Heroes and whether or not there's a TV movie in the works for next season:
No decision has been made. But the Heroes brand is an extremely broad premise. It was a premise about ordinary people, an undisclosed number of people all over the world, who were waking up to these extraordinary abilities. Any number of stories could happen around that. We never posited a single ending or a single premise. It wasn’t about getting off of an island or stopping something from happening. We told stories in volumes that had a beginning, a middle, and an end. Those volumes could go on and on and on with many different characters. As a result, that Heroes universe is something that can be tapped into again in many ways. Certainly, a movie is a way to do that and clearly, there is an entire world and a number of platforms that this property could live in. Movies sometimes need a little distance from the television show.

The show's creator also mentioned that he would be at Comic-Con this year to talk about his new project, Conspiracy for Good, a new book, and about Heroes.

  1. I seriously doubt that the original cast would be interested in anything related to Heroes. of course they'd never admit to it but life moves on and they're already in other places.
    I think TK says that only to avoid getting bags of nuts - like that one time with Jericho fans.
