Cannell Confirms American Hero Film

Stephen J. Cannell, creator of the cult ’80s TV series “The Greatest American Hero”, confirmed to Sci-Fi Wire that a feature film is in the works.

“We’ve written a screenplay, and we’ve hired a director, and we’re in the midst of putting this together for the future” Cannell announce at the Screen Actors Guild foundation’s 75th anniversary on Sunday.

Stephen Herek (“Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure,” “Critters”) is reportedly attached to direct, but Cannell did not confirm that.

What about cameos of the original cast? “Absolutely guaranteed. More than cameos: acting jobs” said Herek.
