The same week as it was announced that "At The Movies" will be going off the air, Roger Ebert announced
on his blog that he and wife Chaz are hoping to start a new movie review show.
The current tentative title for the show is "Roger Ebert presents At the Movies" and several hosts have already been tested. Ebert promises that "the thumbs" will return.
Ebert adds, "Chaz and I will produce the show. Yes, I'd like to make occasional appearances on the air. I'm not foolish enough to believe any form of back-and-forth debate is possible, but I could do Great Movies segments, or a wrap-up from Cannes or Toronto. With all the publicity about me 'getting my voice back,' some people have the idea that a computer program has magically allowed me to speak again. That will never happen. I type, and the words come out. No one can type fast enough for conversational repartee"
Stay tuned for more information as it becomes available...
