No Glee Movies Yet…But is “Yet” the Keyword?

Just recently I was thinking to myself…you know, Sex and the City just finished its movie run (thankfully) – wouldn’t it be cool if another TV series spawned some movies? I wasn’t even thinking of Glee when I thought this (which I find odd), but here you go, my psychic-ness at work:

Despite Internet reports, Glee creator Ryan Murphy tells EW that there are no current plans to transfer the hit Fox series to the big-screen. Says Murphy, “There will be no Glee movie in the foreseeable future. Despite overtures, I and the studio (Fox) have decided we want to put our energy into the second season with no distractions for the cast.”

But just because it’s a “no” to any Glee movies in the forseeable future, it doesn’t mean there’s no hope for the distant future. According to Hollywoodlife, when the Glee stars signed their contracts, Fox included possible feature film rights in the fine print:

[The actor] hereby grants Fox three exclusive, irrevocable options to engage [the actor] in up to, respectively, three feature length motion pictures.

Which basically means, no movie plans right now, but the possibility is still there. What are your thoughts? Think Glee might eventually make it to the silver screen? I’m sure I won’t be the first or last to say that it definitely has what it takes to make it that far. But I’m with Ryan Murphy – let’s give the cast a bit of a break.

    I think a Glee movie in the not too distant future would be an amazing. Can you imagine all us Gleeks turning out… it would be a real event … maybe even reach cult status with people turning up to watch it dressed as Sue Sylvester!

    @Nicole – Now that’s an idea. I like that one. :) It would be an interesting story, because you have someone like Rachel who places all her hopes and dreams on a career in performing arts, and then you have the students like Brittany and Santana who just do it for fun – what might they be doing? Ha, if it was down the road enough, maybe it could even be a high school reunion.

    @Rhesa – Hahaha…I could so see people cos-playing for a Glee movie! Take that, Twi-hards.
