With a link to here

http://thetorchonline.com/2009/04/21/exclusive-xena-movie-just-wont-happen-says-creator-rob-tapert/

And the line

>�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].�
>
>Rumors of a feature film adaptation of the series, which ran in syndication from 1995 to 2001, have circulated for years, and all the principles had indicated in interviews that they�d be eager to participate.
>
>�I thought for a heartbeat it would [get made],� Tapert said, �but at the end of the day, the rules of motion picture marketing, where they have to commit $25 million to open a movie, in this environment, the momentum you need to get a movie made isn�t there to get a Xena movie made.�

When I read the first article about Bi-Gay characters on Spartacus,
and I saw Tappert assoicated with it, my first thought was "Oh, when
do they die?" ::wary and weary look::

What cost of marketing? Are they stupid? All Xenites would be do all
the advertising, with bloging, with youtube vids, with calling friends
who mentioned Xena to them in the last 10 years just to let them
know!
Yes, wait another 20 years and we sure won't do any advertising for
those jerks - MHO.

I don't think the suits realize the fanbase still out there for Lucy
and Rene�.
If they would only stop to notice that the 15th Xena Con is
scheduled for next February, and that it is ALWAYS sold out (not to meniton
Lucy's sold-out concerts), they would see that there is still a HUGE market
for a Xena movie.
If they would only stop to notice.
