Ever since the Canadian sitcom series Corner Gas ended in 2009, people have been asking (1) why it stopped and (2) when it will be made into a movie. Well, question 2 has now been answered. The Corner Gas movie is currently in production!
Says Brent Butt on his blog (on May 20, 2014):
As to question 1, why did it stop, he says:
I am a passionate fan of Corner Gas and Brent Butt, and I wrote about his comedy and the Canadian psyche on my blog. Hopefully, the new scrips from Butt, Andrew Carr and Andrew Wreggit will have the same wit and depth as those of the original series. And, hopefully, no “Hollywoodization”.
Follow all the action on Twitter: @CornerGas; and check out the new website at cornergasthemovie.com. They’ve got a Kickstarter campaign going to fund the movie! Give, people, give! (Links rtrvd. May 30, 2014)
