Six seasons and a movie! has long been the rallying cry of Community fans who hope to keep their beloved show from getting canceled, but it might soon become a reality. Not long after creator Dan Harmon promised in an interview with HitFix that even 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, TVGuide reports that talks have begun about transferring the study group to the big screen. Although the project is still in its beginning stages, Justin Lin has been mentioned as a possible director. Having directed several episodes of Community in the past, including the first paintball epic, Modern Warfare, he would be a good fit to helm the project.
Of course, news about a Community movie wouldn't be possible without that much anticipated sixth season. Fortunately for fans, though, a renewal seems to be highly likely, especially since NBC has struggled to find a new hit comedy for their Thursday Night lineup this year. Harmon also seems to feel confident in a sixth season, as it was recently revealed that the April 17 season finale will end on a cliff-hanger, which should made it easy for the show to segue into its final 13 episodes.
However, as exciting as the possibility of six seasons and a movie is, it's hard to imagine what a Community movie could possibly entail. Because the show prides itself on the ability to jump from genre to genre and construct elaborate, detailed homages to every pop culture phenomenon on the planet, it's hard to predict what path the writers would choose for a film. Do they shoot for a realistic comedy, or go for broke with an over-the-top action thriller? An introspective character study or a stylized film noir? The possibilities are practically endless, so we've come up with five potential plots of our own, based on what we, as fans, want to see on the big screen. Spoiler: the answer is Garrett. We always need more Garrett.
