Turns out, the 37-year-old actress isn’t a big fan of the idea.
“I certainly think a [‘GLOW’] movie could tie everything up,” Alison shared during her appearance on the Fourth Wall podcast. “Our creators, Liz Flahive and Carly Mensch, are incredible writers. And they’re so devoted to these characters that they created. I think a movie would be a great way to wrap it up.”
She added that the talent is there, the pandemic has put a big wrench in any plans.
“I’m a little pessimistic about it actually happening just in light of everything that’s gone on this year and how difficult it is to get anything back into production with COVID,” she added. “And I’m also part of the Community cast, who’s been trying to get a movie going for six years, so what I’m saying is don’t hold your breath because if it does happen, it might take a minute.”
Alison‘s co-star Marc Maron voiced his support of a movie happening.
“Let us wrap it up in a two-hour Netflix movie. Give the showrunners and the cast and the writers the chance to finish the story in a movie, right? Then it’s all fine,” he shared just last month. “That would take the financial pressure off and the writers could play it out, we could shoot it out.”
Glow was cancelled by Netflix just after the summer. See how the cast reacted to the news here…
