Justin Lin's name is mentioned as a possible director, as Community looks set for a season six order, and that movie...

Six seasons and a movie" has been the mantra of the show Community for some time now, and for a while, it looked like that wasn't going to happen. But Community is the show that's somehow has made its way to season five so far, in spite of some significant bumps and challenges along the way. And the word is that NBC is set to order a 13-episode season six to wrap the TV show up.

Beyond that? The movie may well happen. TV Guide is now even reporting that Justin Lin, the director of four Fast & Furious movies and a number of Community episodes, may well land the gig. As showrunner Dan Harmon said, "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". He added that "the title of the book about the show is not Community, An Interesting Journey Into A Show No One Ever Watched. The title of the book is obviously going to be Six Seasons And A Movie".

There's still a long way to go to get a movie greenlit. But it seems that, somewhere, the necessary wheels might just be turning...
