NBC's Community might be heading to the big screen with Justin Lin directing

03.27.2014

How many of you are fans of NBC's Community? I've only seen clips from the series, but most of my friends have told me it's a pretty funny show. A sixth season hasn't been ordered by the network yet, but TV Guide has learned there has been talk about a Community movie. The site has also heard Justin Lin is being considered to direct the film.

Justin Lin was behind the camera for several episodes of Community so it would make sense for him to direct the movie, however he might be too busy working on other projects.

Why is there talk about a movie when a sixth season hasn't even been picked up yet? Insiders say even if NBC doesn't order a new season, the show could end up on a different network, or Hulu, which already has the series' digital rights.

In season two of Community, a fan of the now canceled The Cape was confident the series was going to have "six seasons and a movie," (video below) and now that Community is close to hitting six seasons, many fans want a feature film to actually happen. Creator Dan Harmon recently told HitFix he hopes that accidental prophecy comes true as well.

"I mean, if they do a sixth season, I have to participate. And having done that, if the movie has to be made out of clay and duct tape in my basement, then that’s how the movie will be made, because there has to be closure. The title of the book about the show is not “’Community,’ An Interesting Journey into a Show No One Ever Watched.” The title of the book is obviously going to be, “Six Seasons and a Movie.”

So what do you think Community fans: you game for a sixth season and a movie? You can check out the next new episode of Community on NBC on April 3rd, 2014.

Six Seasons and A Movie

I would really enjoy if this happened. I think if they could recapture the magic they had with a 90 minute movie I'd be pleasantly happy. I really haven't watched it since all the drama off the show began around season three. But I plan on catching up soon. I still love the show.

Is say give it a chance. If the creative types behind it want to do it I'm interested.

As a HUGE, die-hard fan of the series, id have to say... FUCK NO.
1. Because no 30 minute sitcom should EVER be adapted into a full length, feature film. Not Community. Not Entourage. And definitely not Arrested Development. And I LOVE all three of those shows.
2. Because despite Dan Harmon being back, Community still isn't nearly as interesting or funny as it used to be. Better than season 4, yes, but still... no. Too many parodies lately. It's gotten to the point where It'a barely even

3. Chevy Chase, despite apparently being a dick, was an important part of the group, and they would NEED Pierce back for it to work.
4. And Donald Glover isn't part of the cast anymore. No Troy and Abed? No thanks.

I hate to be a buzzkill, but this just isn't a great idea anymore.

This show died after season 3. Season 4 was passable but barely. Season 5 has been a snoozer of a season and I do not feel a 30 min comedy should be adapted into a film. And point #4 is spot on: No Troy and Abed? No community!

Cool Cool!

Any love shown towards Community is well earned! One of the most inventive, subversive, and hilarious shows on television!

Wouldn't mind this at all. It's argurably the funniest show on television.

Hopefully they would be able to get Danny Glover back for this.

Umm Danny Glover is the guy from Predator 2 and Angels in the Outfield! Donald Glover aka Childish Gambino is the actor who played Troy!

Another season, yes! A Movie? ...

Community is a top sitcom watch for me. It really was the best during the tail end of season 1 & all of season 2. Season 3 was still good, but season 4 (without Harmon) was unbearable. I'm glad it has come back strong this season and would welcome a sixth season to finish the story. A movie, however, does not fill me with much delight. I think a strong final season next year would be the better way to go, but if Harmon's determination is any indication, the movie will eventually be made.

One of the funniest shows going. Not sure how I feel about a movie though.
