The end of the longtime ABC series “Desperate Housewives” was met with the same question all popular shows face after their finales: Will there be a movie?

“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,” Hatcher, 48, revealed to Extra TV Tuesday. “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,” she said.
While Hatcher, who is currently promoting the computer-animated flick “Planes” (for which she provides voice talent), hopes she might be able to reprise her "DH" role as Susan on film one day, she confessed that finding love is her No. 1 priority right now. “What I want to do is share all this great experience… It would be really fun to share it with someone special,” said Hatcher. “I have a window that's more open than it used to be, and I imagine that someone will come through it.”
