Stamos wants to flush Full House into movie theaters

John Stamos wants to bring new twins to the big screen in a Full House movie.John Stamos wants to make a movie out of Full House. Not since the talk of adapting Hello, Larry has a rumor caused such an enthusiastic uproar.

The original show featured a widowed father (Bob Saget) who turns to a wacky friend (Dave Coulier) and his brother-in-law (John Stamos) to help raise his three daughters after his late wife was killed by a drunk driver. Yes, that was the set-up for one of the lightest of lightweight comedies.

According to Moviefone, Stamos says he's putting together a project that would not include the original Full House cast. That would save us all from watching a 90 minute exploration of how two sickly sweet, perky Olson twins became desperately thin, tragic drug addicts. Cue the laugh track.

While a movie based on Full House is no less tiresome and ridiculous as adapting Hasbro board games like Battleship or Monopoly (currently in development), we can only hope this weekend's complete slaughter of Land of the Lost at the box office discourages such 70s/80s TV remakes. It won't, but we can hope.

Are there failed sitcoms of ages passed that you would love to see make the big screen jump? You can score early votes for Small Wonder, Best of the West and She's the Sheriff in the comments section.

me secret identity shouldn't be too hard to adapt into a movie.

You know what could be a really funny tv-to-live-action-big-screen movie? The old Mr. T cartoon. The show made no sense and was absolutely crazy...they could do whatever they wanted as long as they had Mr. T, a bunch of gymnasts, a lady, a kid and a dog and no one could say "Hey, that's nothing like the show I remember!"
