Dead Like Me: The Movie


I was stunned when I came across this swag poster while going through pictures from San Diego Comic Con.

I knew they were making a film, but I didn’t know when and how it would be coming out.

Most of the original cast has returned for the movie, with the notable exceptions of Mandy Patinkin (Rube) and Laura Harris (Daisy).  To get around this, they replaced Rube with a different boss and recast Daisy…

I am relieved they did not recast Rube, but I am not sure how I will react to a new actress playing Daisy.

After the departure of Rube Sofer, a new head reaper named Cameron Kane takes over. He's a slick businessman who couldn't care less about helping the newly dead. Chaos ensues and brings out the worst in Daisy and Mason who begin drinking anew. George and Reggie re-connect for the first time when George reaps a new friend of Reggie's (IMDB).

The trailer looks interesting, and the story sounds interesting.  Dead Like Me was one of my favorite shows on TV.  Season 1 blew me away.  After Season 2, I waited for the show to return and when it didn’t, I got rid of cable.

I cannot wait to get the DVD.  It is still a mystery as to when it will come out, but it sounds like it will be sometime in 2009.  There is a different trailer on their Official Site.
