LANCE TALKS MILLENNIUM MOVIE

It goes without saying that we are a busy bunch of individuals these days and this week has been no exception, particularly for my erstwhile colleagues Jim and Troy who's free time has been devoured by our exclusive campaign podcast due to hit the airwaves this weekend. Until normal service resumes, allow me to fill the small, but necessary, gap in our usual Blog output with a few words from your hero and mine, Lance Henriksen. Speaking to dreadcentral.com, Lance was speaking about his recent movie, Screamers: The Hunting, but took yet another opportunity to espouse his desire to see Millennium on the big screen.


“‘Millennium’ was definitely a show before its time,” he commented. “I always thought it was funny that grown men would come up to me on the street and tell me how much that show actually scared them.

“I never even watched the show until the DVD box sets came out. I knew that some of the episodes we did on “Millennium” were brilliant but I never realized just how much until I sat down and watched them for myself. We made some big strides in doing exceptional work for network television. I am still so proud of everything that show was,”

While not a solid reality, the possibility of a “Millennium” film is still feasible,

“I really think a movie would wield a lot of power. I know it’s something that fans and all of us who worked on the show would really love to do because of the possibilities about getting that story up on the big screen. On TV, everything is so sanitized so getting to do Frank’s story on the big screen would be amazing for me. And I know it’s something Chris (Carter) has always wanted to do.”

Ten years, and more, since the demise of Millennium and Lance remains shoulder to shoulder with the fans of the franchise that this chapter should be re-opened and Millennium given the treatment it so readily lends itself to. Let us, as fans, send a message loud and clear to those that hold the fortunes of this franchise in their hands.

We wait, we worry, we care! This is who we are!

Fantastic post Mark. Lance's comments on how powerful Millennium could be on the large screen really struck home with me.

Thanks for continuing to support the cause!
