For those that grew up on a steady diet of sitcoms in the late 90s and early 2000s, That 70s Show stood out as one of the best (running from 1998 to 2006). Since the series wrapped in 11 years ago, the likes of Ashton Kutcher, Mila Kunis and Topher Grace have gone on to enjoy incredibly successful careers in motion pictures.
Yet a reunion show is always a concept that remains on the periphery for television shows that experienced a great run, much like Seinfeld's semi-reunion return on Curb Your Enthusiasm. With the idea of That '70s Movie floating around the rumor mill, regular cast member Wilmer Valderrama explained that such a platform would be an ideal vehicle to get the band back together for one final hurrah.
Talk That '70s Talk To Wilmer as Movie Concept Survives
Appearing on the Steve TV Show with host Steve Harvey, 37-year old Miami native Valderrama could not issue any guarantees as to what lay ahead. He did admit that discussions were being held to bring all parties back as well as some fond memories from his developing years.
"I don't know man. It's been interesting," he remarked. "We've been having some conversations about that but there's nothing official. I feel like the show is still so alive in syndication. We were so young. I was 18-years-old when I started that show and I was 26 when it ended. It was quite a run for us and it was a really exciting time for us and I feel like the show is still so fresh in syndication, I feel like it might be premature for us to even have that conversation. But I will definitely say that I wouldn't keep That '70s Movie out of the conversation."
Valderrama: '70s Movie Would Give Closure To Great Run
As with any series that provides a launching pad for future success, the scheduling to bring all the big hitters back under one banner would be a challenge in itself. Valderrama would love the chance to play the flamboyant exchange student Fez again, giving fans a chance to see them all on the big screen for a comedy to remember.
"Everyone seems pretty busy right now and I feel like this would be a pretty interesting segue to do something where all of us for a couple months can come together and play those characters again."
One major sticking point would be the title and the timeline, with the television show ending by 1979. Surely a film called That '70s Movie set in the 80s or 90s would need another alias?
