The Librarian’s next adventure: your movie theater
Yesterday Deb had a little one-on-one interview with Dean Devlin, producer of TNT’s new hit, Leverage, as well as the trilogy of The Librarian TV movies (the third one aired early last month). She’ll have that interview up sometime later (small preview: Christian Kane’s hair is discussed in length — pun intended). One question that came up was about where The Librarian series is headed; given its success, will it ever transcend to the big screen?

“We’re in the process right now of writing the script,” Devlin told Deb in the interview. “Were hoping some time later this year to start shooting the first Librarian feature movie.” Maybe Noah Wyle didn’t make such a bad move after all.

With the so-so reception the last Indiana Jones movie got (aliens and swinging through trees with monkeys — I mean, come on!), it’s possible that something like this might be a welcome “replacement” for it. Then again, have you seen the National Treasure series? Yikes.

“We’re a little more family friendly than the Indiana Jones franchise,” Devlin continued, “but it’s a good time to let this character flourish.”

Resident CliqueClack Librarian expert, Rich Keller, had this to say about the series: “For an action-adventure television series it was good. Cheesy but good. Everyone involved looked to be having a good time filming the series. The third installment was probably the best of them all.”

I’ve yet to check any of the Librarian movies out, but the fact that a feature movie is in the works will make me think twice about passing up at least one of the movies, should it make a repeat showing on TV. I’d love to hear your opinion on the movies if you’ve seen them — let loose in the comments below.

Hi, my name is Raffy. I've just discovered the community. I'm fan of Noah Wyle from ER years and I follow his carrer since then, The Librarian movies included. And I liked them. I think every movie is better than the previous one. I know there are some people who consider the first the best one, but I disagree. I found the last one the best one. Everything is better: action, humor, acting, photography, music and special effects.
My favourite scene is from the last one: Flynn's meltdown was hysterically funny and Noah acting was over the top. He made me laugh insanely.
My favourite character is Flynn, of course. But I love Bob Newhart and Jane Curten characters too. I don't  pay so much attention to Flynn's girls but I think Stana Katic/Simone is my favourite: she's charming, beautiful, she can act and she has a beautiful voice too!
My favourite quote is: "The fate of the world is in my hands. That's so......SAD!".
I take those movie for what they are: funny and cheesy and I liked them for that. Plus they're all about Noah's character and that's not a bad thing considering how much I love his acting skills and his comic time :)
