John Stamos Has A Full House Movie Idea

You know which television shows from my childhood I’d like to see made into movies? Probably none but definitely not Full House. The show was all fun and dandy and more than suffices as a nostalgic gem, but after 475 straight-to-VHS Olsen twin movies and seeing Danny Tanner spew obscenities in his stand-up act, those characters are pretty much tainted.

Unfortunately, with ER over, John Stamos has had some time to think, and according to NY Daily News, he’s been thinking about a Full House movie. This wouldn’t be in the form of a potentially disastrous reunion, though. Instead, Stamos wants a new cast to play the characters. He even has some people in mind: “I see Steve Carell as [Bob Saget’s character] Danny Tanner and Tracy Morgan as [Dave Coulier’s] Joey Gladstone because he’s funny.” Such justification is impossible to argue against. As for the role of Uncle Jesse? Stamos would like to see James Franco take over.

With the barrage of remakes, reboots, and re-everythings coming at us over the next few years, I don’t see why a studio wouldn’t jump at this idea immediately. It has a built-in audience, it can easily be marketed to a new tween audience, and no one’s going to argue with the studio about canon. After all, it’s Full House. You can bet that by mid-2011 we’ll be seeing a Full House movie. So sassy, cute twins better start getting ready for auditions.
