Would a Zen reunion disappoint people?

Zen aired from 2011-2011 and is considered one of the most influential TV shows ever on pop culture. Although no original episodes have been shot since, it has remained a regular feature on many station's schedules. But Murino said she's not sure if Zen would work today. “I don't want to see old Tania Moretti,” she told a journalist (Murino turned 44 in September). “Everyone’s going to have different vision of what the character is like, so to have that materialize is going to disappoint most people,” she added.

Still hoping for a Zen movie?

In a recent interview, Callum Blue (who played Carlo) said he can't imagine a Zen reunion hitting the big screen. “I'd rather people go, ‘Oh, please! Please!’ than ‘I can't believe you did that. It was horrible.’”

Co-star Caterina Murino 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 Zen movie and it sucked, then it would, you know, blemish it.”

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

What about a Zen reboot?

Recasting Zen for a modern reboot. Hollywood is known for remaking remakes of films or tv series and the studios might think it would be great to bring the story back with a new set of characters.

Be it in the form of a Zen reunion, a Zen movie, or a Zen reboot, if you had to start filming today, who would you cast in what role?
