Scott Bakula confirms Quantum Leaps movie… Scott Bakula has announced that a film version of Quantum Leaps is in development. Bakula, who played Sam Beckett in the sci-fi show, told fans at this year’s Comic-Con that the show’s creator Donald P. Bellisario is working on a script for the movie. “The good news is that Don is working on the film script and has a big-time Hollywood producer who wants to do it,” said Bakula. “It’s about time.” Bakula added that he and co-star Dean Stockwell (Al Calavicci) are now too old to reprise their original roles. The actor did however suggest they will make an appearance: “But Dean and I will have a part in it somehow,” he added.
