‘Community’ movie possible, say Alison Brie and Yvette Nicole Brown

Six seasons are in the can, though the sitcom’s full prophecy won’t be fulfilled until a movie is released. But according to several stars, progress is being made on this front.

Few potential Hollywood projects have generated so much smoke—and so little fire—like the long rumored “” movie. Dan Harmon’s cult sitcom famously promised to deliver “six seasons and a movie,” and while the six seasons wrap up, many die-hard fans are eagerly awaiting the release of a feature film. Harmon and much of the cast have sporadically fueled movie rumors for years, ensuring that the dream never fully dies without raising false hopes.

But this week, the long-running project showed several signs of life. It started with Alison Brie teasing progress on a possible film in a new interview with The Wrap.

“You know what, I’ll say it. There has been movement,” Brie said. “There were some conversations. People talk and certain things – wheels turn. I said it!”

While Brie made no promises that a film would ever come to fruition, she did make it clear that the people behind the scenes are working hard to see if it’s possible to reunite the cast one last time.

“I’m saying there are legitimate conversations going on,” she said. “Whether they ever make it into a real movie or not, I would love it if they did and I hope they do. But just the fact that real conversations are actually happening is, in my opinion, the biggest advancement we’ve ever made on this front.”

“Community” fans are used to being let down by these rumors by now. Anyone could be forgiven for not getting their hopes up over a cast member comment. But Brie wasn’t the only “Community” star to express optimism about a movie this week. Yvette Nicole Brown, who played Shirley in “Community,” also teased a movie in an interview with Collider.

“I know, as Alison said the other day, there’s been a lot of conversation,” Brown said. “We’ve been saying that for years, it’s not that there’s a lack of desire. We’d all love to do it, but everyone just branched off and did so many different things. It’s like how you work out a schedule where you can again have a Donald Glover, a Gillian Jacobs, or a Danny Pudi in one place at the same time? So, I think this is the greatest puzzle that can be put together, but every puzzle can find its way to completion. So I think it’s going to happen, I don’t know when, but there are talks going on right now.
