Teri Hatcher has revealed she wants to reprise her role as Susan Delfino in a big-screen take on the TV show Desperate Housewives.

The 48-year-old actress, who starred in the show for eight years, reckons her character still has unfinished business.

Speaking to The Sun newspaper Hatcher insisted that she show “still had life” in it when it ended last year, despite creator Marc Cherry’s renouncing any plans for a movie.

Hatcher said: "I certainly would be (up for it). I never felt like all the stories were done when it wrapped up. I felt like it still had life."

She added: "Of course, they killed Mike. I don't know what the story would be for Susan and how she could divorce herself from the sadness of how that ended for her. Maybe the movie would be before Mike died."
