In an exciting development for fans of the cult classic TV show "Community," Donald Glover has revealed that the script for the highly anticipated movie adaptation is now complete. The news broke during the New York premiere of Glover's latest endeavor, "Mr.

& Mrs. Smith." Glover, renowned for his portrayal of LeVar Burton's enthusiastic admirer, Troy Barnes, in "Community," shared this update with Entertainment Tonight. "I was texting today, and I was told that the script was done," he commented.

Although he hasn't had the chance to read the script yet, Glover, also the creative force behind "Atlanta," expressed his eagerness to revisit his character. "It's really just about aligning schedules, but I'm all in," he affirmed.

Cast Scheduling Challenges

This announcement is particularly significant, coming on the heels of remarks made by Ken Jeong, another star from "Community," who recently urged fans to maintain a "cautious optimism" about the film.

Speaking on The Tonight Show, Jeong highlighted the challenge of synchronizing the schedules of the show's busy cast. "Getting everyone, including Donald Glover, the biggest star in the world, to align their schedules is the key," he told Jimmy Fallon.

He also mentioned other prominent cast members like Danny Pudi, Gillian Jacobs, Alison Brie, Yvette Nicole Brown, and Oscar winner Jim Rash, all of whom have packed schedules. In a light-hearted moment, Jeong quipped about Joel McHale's availability, joking that he's "very available" and "like, available any time." The journey towards the "Community" movie has been a topic of speculation and excitement since Peacock first announced its development in 2022.

The show, which originally aired from 2009 to 2015, has maintained a dedicated fan base, eagerly awaiting the fulfillment of the show's mantra, "six seasons and a movie." As fans eagerly anticipate more details about the project, this latest update from Donald Glover not only fuels their excitement but also keeps the hope alive that the beloved characters of Greendale Community College will soon grace the big screen.
