Teri Hatcher hints at Desperate Housewives film

Teri Hatcher claims a Desperate Housewives movie would be “great for fans”.

The actress starred as hapless Susan Meyer in the suburban comedy drama series from 2004 to 2012. Desperate Housewives gained a global following and made Teri and her castmates Eva Longoria, Marcia Cross and Felicity Huffman huge stars.

There has been speculation that the award-winning hit TV show could make a move to the big screen, and Teri is open to the idea.

“I love the fans of the show so much, and they don't seem to be done with those characters. I think it would be great for them,” Teri told Extra. “If a script ever came across my lap, I would read it, hoping that it would work out, but I don't really see that happening.”

As well as talking about her time on Desperate Housewives, Teri was also quizzed on her personal life.

The 48-year-old brunette is currently single and is focusing on raising her 15-year-old daughter Emerson. However, she would love to find the right person to settle down with.

“What I want to do is share all this great experience… it would be really fun to share it with someone special,” she explained. “I have a window that's more open than it used to be, and I imagine that someone will come in it.”

Teri’s latest role sees her play forklift operator Dottie in the Disney animated film Planes.

“I think what they wanted from me in this character was a nurturing, loyal, earnest friend who could have some comedic attitude,” she said of the character.

    Some things in life are hard to explain, like why a dentist insists on asking you questions when you clearly can't respond. Or why we call pants "a pair" even though it's just one. Or how about this puzzler: Why a person would drive their Mustang along a Texas highway despite it missing a wheel? Life is full of little mysteries, I guess.
