Long before J.J. Abrams was the darling of Hollywood, he was the mind behind one of the most wildly awesome (and occasionally off-the-rails) series with ABC's Alias. Turns out original star Jennifer Garner (Daredevil, Elektra) is actually up for getting the band back together—she just has one little requirement.
So, what would it take to bring the coolest spy-fi series back to life? Not surprisingly, she'll only do it if Abrams is the man pulling the strings again. He captured lightning in a bottle for a few seasons of the original series, and Garner told Fretts On Film she'd only risk it if she knew it had his stamp of approval:
"I don't see him turning around and rebooting 'Alias' anytime soon. If he did it and he was involved, I'm sure the rest of us would sign right up. We had a blast making that show and we're all still super close, so I'm sure you would find an eager group of participants right there."
Garner's star was on the rise when the series ended, but she hasn't done much lately (she's currently co-starring in the new Disney family film The Odd Life of Timothy Green), so it makes sense that she'd be open to a potential return to glory.
Storywise, the show got a little crazy by the end, but when Abrams could balance the fantastic with the spy stuff, it worked—and could work again.
What do you think? Would you come back for more Alias?
