Teri Hatcher: ‘I’m up for ‘Desperate Housewives: The Movie”

Actress says the show 'still had life' when it ended last year (2012)

Teri Hatcher has revealed that she would be interesting in reviving Desperate Housewives for a movie.

The hit US TV series about the women of Wisteria Lane ended last year (2012) after 180 episodes. Hatcher starred alongside Eva Longoria, Felicity Huffman and Marcia Cross throughout the eight-season run.

When asked during a webchat with The Sun whether she would be up for Desperate Housewives: The Movie, Hatcher replied: “I certainly would be. I never felt like all the stories were done when it wrapped up. I felt like it still had life.”


However, the actress admitted that her character Susan Mayer might find it hard to move on after the death of husband Mike (James Denton), who was killed in a drive-by shooting during the show’s final season.

“Of course, they killed Mike. I don’t know what the story would be for Susan and how she could divorce herself from the sadness of how that ended for her. Maybe the movie would be before Mike died,” Hatcher speculated.

Hatcher’s latest role is in computer-animated Disney movie Planes, which opens in cinemas on August 16. You can watch the trailer below.
