Community's Alison Brie Is Skeptical Of The Movie's Alleged Shooting Schedule
Despite its cult following, “Community” was defined by constant studio conflicts, from NBC firing showrunner Dan Harmon after Season 3 to an entirely different platform, Yahoo! Screen, airing its final season. With cast departures, declining ratings, and failed attempts to recapture the show's golden years, it makes sense that Alison Brie has doubts about the movie.
Although the “Community” movie looks likely to start production, Brie told the AV Club, “I say this with a hint of ... [sighs] I don't trust it! I'm not a skeptic, I do believe that the 'Community' movie will get made. It's been sold — to Peacock! But because of everything we went through on that show ... I'll believe it when I see it. It's not until I'm on set that I'll be like, 'We're making it!'”
Aside from her reservations, Brie has confirmed that there is no significant reason for alarm yet and that a lot of the show’s original cast has committed to shooting the movie. She added, “Most of us have all signed on to do it, everyone who's in is in, and now everyone is kind of assessing their schedules and hoping that we can make it work to shoot it this summer.”
