But Ulrich said he's not sure if Jericho would work today. “I don't want to see old Jake Green,” he told a journalist (Ulrich turned 51 in January). “Everyone’s going to have different vision of what the character is like, so to have that materialize is going to disappoint most people,” he added.

Still hoping for a Jericho movie?

Co-star Lennie James (who played Robert Hawkins) has also previously explained, “It would be terrible to do something and have it not be good,”. “It was so terrific ... If we did a Jericho movie and it sucked, then it would, you know, blemish it.”

On the subject of whether there could be a Jericho film, Sprague Grayden stated : “I think it's a bit of a case of ‘the book is better than the movie’.”
