Aside from the big news regarding Guardians Of The Galaxy, it’s been pretty quiet on the Lee Pace news front. He recently wrapped up shooting the pilot episode of AMC’s “Halt And Catch Fire,” which will hopefully be picked up for a full season. The Hobbit is currently shooting more scenes after the second film was split into two separate features; however, I’m uncertain as to whether or not Lee will be back in New Zealand for additional footage.
So, with that said, how about some more talk about a potential “Pushing Daisies” film?
When speaking to Kristin Dos Santos at E! – who was notoriously supportive of “Pushing Daisies” when it was on the air – creator/writer Bryan Fuller revealed that he has some pretty big plans in store for previous cast members, including Lee Pace, Kristin Chenoweth, and Anna Friel. Check out what he says about a potential Kickstarter campaign to fund a “Daisies” movie, and whether or not we’ll see our favorite pie makers in Bryan’s current NBC series, “Hannibal.”
• “From the moment the show was canceled [on ABC], I’ve been trying to do a ‘Pushing Daisies’ movie and started writing a script for it. The best chance for it to happen, perhaps the only chance for it to happen, would be through something like Kickstarter. I haven’t even been back in Los Angeles for more than five days since wrapping ‘Hannibal,’ so one of the first orders of business is to find out more from ['Veronica Mars' creator] Rob Thomas to find out how he did it. And to call Warner Brothers to see if it’s something that they would allow… But I would, Oh my God, I would love to get those actors together again. I have what I think is a very cool story; it’s just a matter of finding out if it’s possible. I think it would be such an interesting sentimental return.”
• “I talked to Lee Pace about doing a role on ['Hannibal'] this season. But he was doing a stage play, and so we’re planning to work that out with season two. He’s definitely interested in doing the show, and I would love to work with him again. I also very much want to work with Anna Friel again, and Kristin Chenoweth clearly has to play someone in the Boston arts scene. Perhaps an opera singer. So we are hoping to make that all happen.”
