Community ran for six seasons, but what about that movie? Recently, creator Dan Harmon told The Wrap he’s trying to get a movie made for the cancelled NBC/Yahoo TV show.
The comedy followed a group of community college students as they become unlikely friends. The cast included Joel McHale, Chevy Chase, Gillian Jacobs, Danny Pudi, Yvette Nicole Brown, Alison Brie, Donald Glover, Ken Jeong, Jim Rash, John Oliver, and Matt L. Jones. The series ran on NBC for five seasons before Yahoo picked it up for a sixth and final season.
In the interview, Harmon said he’s trying to get a Community movie made with director Justin Lin:
I keep having conversations with the kinds of people that could make it happen. The Russo brothers moved from ‘Community’ to becoming industry shapers. So did one of our most popular directors, Justin Lin, who directed the first paintball episode.
I hope I’m not talking out of school by saying that. I’ll get together with him every once in a while, or we’ll have dinner, and we’re talking — we keep trying to figure out how to do this.”
What do you think? Are you a fan of Community? Would you watch a movie?
