Sookie Stackhouse and her legion of supernatural boyfriends are on the cusp of living up to HBO’s signature slogan, as True Blood is no longer just TV — pretty soon, it could be a full-blown feature film.
A rumor originating at What’s Playing suggests that HBO is preparing to transition True Blood from the small screen to the big one. According to the London Insider, the site’s source, the network might produce two more seasons before ending the series. After the show’s small screen finale, the story of Sookie and the rest of the crazy Bon Temps locals would move into theaters with a series of films, not unlike what HBO did with the Sex and the City franchise and is preparing to do with Entourage. The time table for a True Blood movie is “sooner rather than later,” and series mastermind Alan Ball “may want to direct,” according to the report.
Frankly, there’s not much to go on here — the London Insider considers this a rumor, so take it with a hefty helping of salt. That said, I actually think moving True Blood to film isn’t a bad call. The recently concluded third season was a bit jumbled thanks to too many plot lines and too many characters, and a movie would presumably have to trim down the fat considerably. I, for one, would be open to a True Blood film… how about you?
