'Full House' the Movie?

Is a "Full House" movie in the works?

Just like Michelle Tanner always said, "You got it, dude!"

A Full House movie is in the works

John Stamos, who played Uncle Jesse, says he's "working on a movie idea," but it won't feature the original sitcom's cast.

"It wouldn't be us playing us," Stamos tells New York's Daily News. "I'm not 100 percent sure, but it would probably take place in the first few years [of the sitcom]."

Stamos says "Milk" star James Franco would be perfect as Uncle Jesse. Adding, "I see Steve Carell as Danny Tanner [originally played by Bob Saget] and Tracy Morgan as Joey Gladstone [originated by Dave Coulier] because he's funny."

"Full House" ran for eight seasons and wrapped in 1995. Stamos tells the paper he still keeps in touch with his co-stars. "We're all very close," he said. "I saw Ashley [Olsen] a couple weeks ago. Bob and Dave, I see a lot."

Stamos, 45, is a presenter for the Tony Awards on June 7 and he's set to headline the upcoming revival of the hit musical "Bye Bye Birdie" on Broadway.
