Chris O’Dowd Wants An IT Crowd Movie

The-IT-Crowd-004-300x210Chris O’Dowd, the star of Channel 4’s sitcom The IT Crowd, has said he would like to see the show turned into a film.

He told the Associated Press: “I’d be up for it, but I don’t know how they could string it up – we can barely make half an hour out of it, so I don’t know what we would do out of an hour and a half.”

O’Dowd plays IT worker and computer nerd Roy in the Channel 4 show, written by Father Ted and Black Books screenwriter Graham Linehan. Previously his co-star Richard Ayoade, director of Submarine, has joked that an IT Crowd movie would ‘be like the Inception version of The IT Crowd – multiple realities, with a map.’

Comedy adaptations don’t have much of a noble history on the silver screen – from On The Buses to Sex And The City (especially the second one..), they’ve never quite done justice to their small screen counterparts. Would an IT Crowd film be any different?
