Joel McHale Announces ‘Community’ Movie Filming Soon, Confirms Bullying Allegations Against Chevy Chase

“Community” Movie Finally in the Works, Joel McHale Shares Updates

After years of anticipation, it seems like the “Community” movie may finally be on the horizon. Joel McHale, who starred in the popular TV show, recently shared some updates with TMZ that are sure to lift fans’ spirits.

In a recent interview in L.A., McHale revealed that the long-awaited movie is set to start shooting either in the fall or early next year. This news has been met with excitement from fans who have been clamoring for a continuation of the “Community” story since the show went off the air in 2015.

However, McHale made it clear that one familiar face may be missing from the movie. He mentioned that Chevy Chase, who played a pivotal role in the show, likely won’t be a part of the project. McHale explained that Chase left the show unceremoniously and didn’t have the best relationship with the cast and crew. It seems unlikely that he would return for the movie.

When asked about Chevy Chase’s controversial reputation in Hollywood, McHale didn’t mince words. He acknowledged that Chase was known for his difficult behavior on set and that he likely wouldn’t dispute the label of being a bully. While McHale didn’t explicitly say that Chase wouldn’t be welcome back, he implied that it was unlikely due to the actor’s history.

One of the most contentious moments involving Chase on the set of “Community” was an incident where he allegedly made racist comments towards Donald Glover, another cast member. McHale also revealed that he and Chase once got into a physical altercation that resulted in Chase dislocating his shoulder. These incidents, along with Chase’s overall demeanor, make it unsurprising that he won’t be invited back for the movie.

Despite the absence of Chevy Chase, fans of the show can look forward to the long-awaited movie that promises to continue the story of the beloved characters from “Community.” With the project finally moving forward, it seems like the promise of “six seasons and a movie” may soon be fulfilled, albeit without one of the show’s original stars.
