Misfits movie has been shelved

Misfits is unlikely to get its big screen outing any time soon, according to one of the show's stars.

There had been plans to take the hit Channel 4 TV series to a film version, but Antonia Thomas, who played Alisha Daniels, told the Radio Times that plans had been shelved for the time being.

She said: "There was all sorts of talk about it. We read scripts and I think it's now not happening. I haven't heard anything. I think it's just difficult to get everybody together.

"Everybody is doing such different things. Maybe they think everybody has moved on, I don't know. You never say never but I have not heard anything of it of late.

"It was a really cool script, kind of getting the old gang back together, it could have been a lot of fun."

Misfits ran for five series from 2009 to 2013 and was about a group of teenage delinquents who ended up with superhuman powers after a storm.

The film script had been written by series creator Howard Overman and was going to include original cast members Antonia, Iwan Rheon, Lauren Socha, Nathan Stewart-Jarrett and Robert Sheehan.

Antonia is now starring in new Channel 4 sitcom Scrotal Recall as the love interest of a man diagnosed with an STD who has to contact all his former sexual partners to let them know, and said of the new series: "There is so much room for at least a second series and we would want to explore it more."
