First draft of Misfits movie screenplay in place

News Simon Brew 27 Nov 2012 - 07:44

Howard Overman has revealed that he's written the first draft for a Misfits movie. Spoilers within...

This story contains spoilers for those who aren’t up to date with Misfits.

The success of Misfits has been something of a triumph for E4/Channel Four. Originally a very low budget show (and it’s hardly burning through lots of cash right now), it’s testament to the fact that very good writing and a quality cast and crew can really make a show special.

Misfits is currently coming to the end of its fourth series at the moment, and talk has inevitably turned to the rumoured spin-off movie for the show. It’s talk that the show’s creator, Howard Overman, has moved along, too, as he's told the Panel Borders radio show that “I’ve written the first draft of the script and we’ll see what happens”.

Specifically, he also added that “whether or not you’ve completely seen the end of Simon and Alisha, if our movie has our way, is another issue”.

A Misfits movie is still likely to be some way off, but we’ll definitely keep you posted as we hear more…

Can't help thinking it would be a mistake to have Simon and Alisha in this if they want to attract new viewers. The movie should stand alone, be its own thing - without baggage from the TV show.

I'm not sure. I think they could have a lot of fun dragging back the characters in order to do something about Simon and Alisha's timeloop predicament.

As long as Nathan's in it and on form, I'm not going to complain.

Nathan AND Rudy? That deserves a movie!

I am a HUGE fan of Misfits, however, I have not really enjoyed this 4th series so much. It seems all over the place and I really don't care enough about the 2 new characters whether they save the day or die.

It is relying on Rudy's character way too much for it's humour where as the 1st 3 series used all characters to full comedy effect.

I have just lost interest now.

Nathan?

Have to have the original cast in it they were a great mix

SHAME ON YOU GOOD SIR!

Oh man, I just read that the movie will have the present misfits as well as the ASBO Five! Holy crap, Nathan and Rudy!!!
