American actor Scott Patterson has unleashed on executives road blocking a Gilmore Girls movie, saying it borders on "abuse" that fans of the TV series have been denied a resolution to the story.
Patterson, who played Luke Danes on the US show from 2000 to 2007, recently said he was keen to do a Gilmore Girls film.
He ramped up his push on Friday when he told AAP he would be just as annoyed as fans if it doesn't come to fruition.
"I will be as pissed off as they are or will be if nothing comes of it," the 56-year-old said.
He said he knows what is going on behind the scenes but he cannot reveal whether or not there were talks afoot to make the movie happen.
Patterson said passionate Gilmore Girls' fans deserve better.
"They want to see a resolution, they deserve it," he said.
"It borders on abuse that - I mean it's so obvious what it should be and it's so obvious where the story needs to go yet there is all of this 'well we just, you know, we don't have a script or we don't' - I mean, can you just stop the BS for five seconds?
"Write the damn script, get the money, make a deal, let's go."
Patterson said a 30-year-old man approached him at the airport in Austin and started hugging him and crying.
"I am used to having pleasant exchanges with fans but I had never had something like that with a grown man.
"It turns out he was in a sniper unit in Iraq and they watched the show to keep their sanity. Nothing horrible or harsh was going to happen on the show, it was like laying in a bed filled with daffodils somewhere in summer and just like 'ahhhhh this feels good."'
Patterson said audiences are rediscovering series like Gilmore Girls on Netflix, prompting other hit shows to revisit their stories.
"Full House is doing it without the twins so if they can do it without the twins anybody can do it - right?"
In series seven it is implied Luke and Lorelai Gilmore, played by Lauren Graham, are back together after an on-again-off-again romance and engagement.
The cast didn't know the show was coming to an end when they filmed the last episode and were later told the series had been axed.
Patterson said he wasn't surprised when his manager told him the network had pulled the plug because the series wasn't the same after creator Amy Sherman-Palladino and her husband Daniel left after season six.
He also said Graham and Alexis Bledel, who played Graham's on screen daughter Rory, had other opportunities beckoning.
"Perhaps certain cast members were a little bankrupt in terms of creative juice and they want(ed) to try something else," he said.
"When you're a young actress and you think maybe you have a chance at getting the golden ticket the way Alexis thought ... you know it's kind of hard to turn your back on that," he said.
"Lauren was starting to experience some film success and you know she wasn't 20 so she really kind of had to make a move."
Patterson, who's other credits include Saw IV, Saw V and Saw VI, is in Australia this weekend for Oz Comic-Con.
