Pushing Daisies movie a possibility, right after Arrested Development movie gets re-uncanceled
Bryan Fuller's Pushing Daisies has been a hit with the critics but ultimately after the first season was cut short from the writer's strike, the viewership has dwindled ever since. Luckily as with other cult shows Firefly and Arrested Development the possibility of a movie is very possible with the cast seeming to be committed as well as a desire to close all the loose ends from the second half of season 2 after its abrupt cancellation.
TV Guide revealed that Fuller is only really interested if he could get all six members of the cast back together. With all the former members going on to future projects, that could become increasingly difficult. Rumor states that with the Arrested Development movie much of the delay is focused around actor Micheal Cera who's recently pulled himself onto the A-list with hit films Juno and Superbad.
With the remaining three episodes of the second season of Pushing Daisies being held back by ABC and with the last episode staying on a cliffhanger there is a strong possibility that we'll see more of this series in the future. Currently Bryan Fuller's Dead Like Me is getting a direct-to-DVD movie five years after its cancellation, so this can very well be the case for Pushing Daisies.
