Joel McHale Optimistic About Community Movie


Joel McHale recently spoke with Esquire and said that a seventh season of the series is unlikely, but that a film is very possible.

McHale, told the site that the cast’s contracts are up, noting, “They would have to significantly increase some of the pay of some of the actors, I think.” The comedy aired its sixth (and presumably final) season on Yahoo!

In regards to a possible film, he said, “I really do think there’ll be a movie…I think what has to happen is that Dan [Harmon] needs to write the script. It’s a tall order for someone. ‘Go write a brilliant movie script on a beloved show that you’ve been writing for six years. Go! Just go ahead and do that!’ I don’t think that is something that’s like, ‘Let me just have a long weekend.’ The cast would do it. We would all do it.”

He discussed the fan demand for the film, saying, “It might be false optimism, but I really think there will be a [Community] movie. The more people read and talk about it, the more it gets stirred up.”
