Are you ready to see the Tanner family back in action? Well John Stamos is! He’s planning on taking the show that made him famous, and turning it into a movie! Yes, laugh all you want, but John is currently developing the idea for a Full House movie.
He tells NY Daily News, “I’m working on a movie idea, but it wouldn’t be us playing us. I’m not 100% sure, but it would probably take place in the first few years” of the 1987-95 series.”
And John has a whole new slew of actors to play the parts, rather than the originals. He says, “I see Steve Carell as [Bob Saget’s character] Danny Tanner and Tracy Morgan as [Dave Coulier’s] Joey Gladstone because he’s funny.” As for Uncle Jesse? He wants James Franco to fill his shoes.
Stamos says he’s still really close with the original cast, saying, “We’re all very close. I saw Ashley a couple weeks ago. Bob and Dave I see a lot.”
We’re not knocking the idea, but wouldn’t it make more sense to employ the original actors of Full House? Besides the Olsen twins, we’re sure everyone wouldn’t mind an extra paycheck right about now!
