While Donald Glover won't be appearing in that 21 Savage biopic after all, he's still on deck to take part in the film adaptation of Community, and he's now shared more about the project in a new interview.

In conversation with The Hollywood Reporter behind the recently released Mr. and Mrs. Smith — the Amazon Prime Video series he co-created and co-stars in — Glover was inevitably asked about reprising his role as Community's Troy Barnes on the big screen.

While he said that he had yet to see a script for the project in April of last year, Glover had more details to reveal this time around.

Asked if he still planned to appear in the film, Glover shared, "Yeah, [Dan Harmon] told me what he wanted, and I was like, 'This sounds great.' It’s a college reunion, but Abed [Danny Pudi’s character] is like this big director now, and basically this is his magnum opus. I'm like, 'This sounds fucking tight.'"

Community ran for six seasons between 2009 and 2015, developing a cult following despite ratings struggles or being, as some detractors felt, not "funny enough."

Upon reports of the show's cancellation during its third season, fans campaigned for its continuation through the use of the hashtag #SixSeasonsAndAMovie (a reference to a line from the show's second season). How's that for manifestation?
