Will 'Fast & Furious' vet Justin Lin direct a 'Community' movie?
Six seasons and a "Fast & Furious" movie?
NBC's acclaimed "Community" has been rumored to be heading to the big screen for some time, and the latest buzz points to the possibility of a familiar face behind the camera.
According to TV Guide, "Furious" franchise vet Justin Lin is being considered to direct the big screen version.
The show's longtime mantra had been "Six seasons and a movie," and once-and-current showrunner Dan Harmon sees it as a distnct possibility, depending on the show's future at NBC (it's produced by Sony Pictures Television). He recently told HitFix, "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.
Lin has directed several episodes of the show, including the action-packed "Modern Warfare," in which the Greendale gang engage in an elaborate paintball match allover the campus.
Joe and Anthony Russo, who directed the upcoming "Captain America: The Winter Soldier," have also worked on the show, and it's certainly not impossible for them to be involved in any potential film version.
Meanwhile, "Community's" two-part season 5 finale airs April 10 and April 17 at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
