Joel McHale Says A 'Community' Movie Could Happen

Now, Joel McHale, one of the stars of the show, has hinted that more Community could be on the way, although in a different format.

"I think we will do a movie if (writer Dan Harmon] will write the script," McHale told Conan O'Brien on Monday night.

Community battled low ratings for years on NBC, but still remained a cult-favorite. It was that small bu...
