A long running joke of Dan Harmon’s “Community” sitcom was that it wanted to achieve ‘six seasons and a movie’. When it came to a close in 2015 it reached that six season mark – even as it lost some key cast members along the way.
So will we ever get that movie? In a new interview with The Wrap, Harmon revealed that he’s been meeting with the Russo Brothers (“Avengers: Infinity War”) and director Justin Lin (“Fast Five”) about the possibility of doing the movie:
“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. [Lin] in particular has always been jazzed about the idea of doing a ‘Community’ movie.
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. Those are the kinds of guys, the Russos, plus Justin, plus a humble little me – maybe there is a way to secure the money and the momentum to make something happen. But fingers crossed – don’t want to jinx it.”
Harmon himself is busy with “Rick and Morty,” the animated comedy which is coming off its utterly triumphant third season as both a ratings smash hit and critical favorite. Harmon has today released a new shirt that picks up from the end of the finale and offers an “Up”-inspired sequence providing context as to how the character of Mr. Poopybutthole came to be in the position he is now.
