Joe Russo Believes A Community Movie Could Happen

I see a lot of myself in stoners; I constantly eat, I wallow away on the sofa in my pants, and I watch countless episode of Community on repeat.

Admittedly, I don’t actually smoke, so there’s a slight difference. At least stoners can blame their crippling laziness on the psychoactive drugs pulsing through their bodies.

While promoting his Netflix Original, Extraction, Joe Russo spoke to Collider about the possibility of the hugely desired movie, following the six seasons. #SixSeasonsAndAMovie. (I appreciate that that hasn’t been reference in the show for years, but what can I say? I’m as forgetful as a stoner, too.)

You see, before Joe teamed up with his brother, Anthony, to bring you the most successful film ever, Avengers: Endgame, and shatter my heart into, like, a gazillion pieces repeatedly, they took on something much more gruelling – Chevy Chase’s flippant racism.

The Russo Brothers began on the series as executive producers, and served as directors on the first few series of Dan Harmon’s bonkers series. It seems like, after Community was put back on to Netflix, it sparked some interest from Joe.

“We’d certainly be willing to do it. We love our Community family. That cast; we’re all still very close to all of them.

“It’d certainly be schedule-depending for us,” explained Joe. “But I believe there will be a Community movie, especially now that it’s doing so well on streaming. Someone like Netflix could step up and make that movie.”

Putting his, y’know, most-successful-movie-ever-made cap on, Joe Russo shared his take on the possible Community movie, saying that he would want it to shy away from big budgets (mainly because he used everyone’s budgets on the Avengers😉 saying that the show was so compelling due to its quaintness.

“I don’t think you’d want to suddenly execute it with crazy high production value and set design. Unless we were going somewhere fantastical or doing one of our genre-exploration concepts. But I think you’d easily pull that movie off for a budget.”

Joe, in the words of Abed, you made me so happy, I peed a little. But, then again, he did also say that “9/11 was pretty much the 9/11 of the falafel market,” so I don’t know what to think anymore.
