Alison Brie Says ‘Legitimate Conversations’ Are Being Had About Making A Community Movie
| Last updated
Alison Brie has teased that a Community movie could be on the horizon.
Please don’t toy with our emotions and deliver us with empty promises!
The Mad Men and Glow actor recently spoke with the The Wrap's Unwrapped podcast and hinted that a film version of the iconic TV series is potentially in the works.
She said: “You know what, I’ll say it. There’s been movement.
“There’s been some talks. People are talking and certain things — wheels are turning. I said it!”
The 39-year-old actor also teased that this is the most progress they’ve had launching the project.
Brie said: “I’m saying there are legitimate conversations that are happening.
"Whether or not they will ever turn into an actual movie — I would love it if they did, and I hope that they do.
“But the fact alone that actual real conversations are happening is I think the most progress we’ve ever made on that front.”
Aside from Brie, the show’s star, Joel McHale, also recently provided an update on the Community movie while sitting down with Game Rant.
The comedian dismissed the idea of the film initially in light of the show’s resurgence with streaming services like Netflix and Prime Video. But McHale believes a movie might be given the green light.
He said: “I would say it's more likely than it was before, definitely, but it's like building an aircraft carrier. You go, 'We're gonna do this, right? Yeah, okay, everybody's here, we got the money.
“Now, this thing has to actually get built. There's a lot more than just 'Hey, let's make a movie now, great.' It's a lot of moving parts.
"So I'm more positive than I was, definitely, but we'll see. That's a terrible answer, but definitely better than my answer two years ago."
Look, he definitely gave the media-trained answer, but if you add them with Brie’s comments, fans could quite possibly get ‘six seasons and a movie’.
Last year, the show’s creator Dan Harmon said on Vulture's Good One podcast that he was working on a script and deciding if the movie would pander solely to fans.
He said: "Here's the biggest philosophical question: Are you supposed to service a mythical new viewer? The obvious, dogmatic, practical, off-the-street answer is like, 'No, you don't. It's fan service. Why would there be a Community movie?’”
"Formalistically, you owe a movie that, I think, the fans can not only enjoy, but they can stand back and go, 'You know, the crazy thing about this Community movie is that if you didn't know there was a show, this is an insanely good movie'."
Well, whatever he decides, we just can’t wait to see the whole band back together.
