Gilmore Girls movie not happening yet, says creator
Saturday night’s Gilmore Girls reunion at the ATX Festival in Austin, Texas, had everything fans of the beloved series could want… except confirmation that a long-discussed movie project is being developed.
“There’s nothing in the works at the moment,” creator Amy Sherman-Palladino said during the Entertainment Weekly-sponsored event. Which isn’t to say something won’t happen in the future.
“Here’s the good thing: Nobody here hates each other. It would have to be the right everything — the right format, the right timing… it would have to be honored in a certain way,” Sherman-Palladino said. “And if it ever came around, we would all jump in and do it. And if it ever happened, I promise you I’d do it correctly.”
Rumors that there could be a Gilmore Girls movie hit a fever pitch back in May when co-star Scott Patterson told the Gilmore Girls podcast that there were “talks” of a film project.
“I can’t really go into any details, but there is some activity. I’m hopeful, and I’m in,” Patterson said. “I think it would be a big event, and I think it would be a great fan celebration.”
On Saturday night, Patterson was slightly apologetic about his enthusiasm (“It springs more from hopefulness”), but said he felt everyone — fans and cast alike — was due for a Gilmore Girls movie.
“It’s kinda time, don’t you think?”
