Sounds Like A ‘Community’ Movie Is About To Happen?

‘Community’ is a weird show to me. It is like banana pudding, really. I don’t like anything that goes into banana pudding, but I love banana pudding.

Chevy Chase? Hard pass.
Joel McHale? No thanks.
Ken Jeong? Just the fvcking worst.

Community‘ ? … thank you sir, may I have another.

And it sounds like we might be getting just that… at least according to a couple reports from

Joeng told the outlet: “Like I’ve always said, if The Hangover made me famous, Community made me a better actor and if there’s ever a movie, I’m down for it, sight unseen.”

Okay…. I’m listening.
He added:

“Those guys are my family, and I am just — I work with Joel McHale who was the star of Community — or so he tells me — and I work with him all the time and there’s always a part of Community in me and all the work that I do. Absolutely.”

It is not the first time PopCulture has reported on the subject. McHale broached the movie talk in April with them as well.

“If you had asked me a year ago, I would have lied to you and said, ‘Oh, maybe.’ But in the back of my mind, I was like, ‘I don’t know how that’s going to happen.’ But I wasn’t going to ever say no,” McHale told them. “But I will say after the table read we did last — boy, it’s almost a year ago, April or May — that was the first time when I was like, ‘Oh, I think this might happen.’ And Donald [Glover] said in the interview, he would do it, and it just comes down to coming up with $100 million. […] Because I could use $100 million, and then we could make it.”

Alllllll of that is on the back of Dan Harmon saying that a script was in development.

“The gears are turning. There is, like… a thing is happening. Logistically, the locks are coming away,” Harmon said. “The only problems are becoming the creative ones, which is great because I love those problems. I love having these conversations, and they’re being had.”

“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? Who do you think is going to walk in off the street and buy popcorn and sit and watch a Community movie like that? They deserve to be punished. Why are they doing that?'” he added. “Saying that that person doesn’t exist is a lot different from asking yourself structurally if you’re supposed to design the movie for them because there’s a new viewer inside of all of us.”

Just give me the fvcking movie already.
