'Gilmore Girls': The Movie?

When Gilmore Girls ended in 2007 after seven seasons, fans were devastated to say goodbye to Lorelei and Rory. But goodbye doesn't have to mean forever -- not when there's a movie deal on the horizon.

In an interview with Gilmore Girls creator Amy Sherman-Palladino, EW got her talking about the possibility of a movie. Palladino, who left the show before the final season, was unhappy with the series finale, specifically with Rory (Alexis Bledel) joining the Obama campaign. And she hopes to get the chance to realign the characters' fates in a feature film:

"Anything can happen. I’m in touch with Lauren Graham and Alexis Bledel. If there’s a story to tell, then absolutely I think we’re all going to want to tell it. That’s the bottom line... If I thought it was definitely not going to happen, I would say, 'No, it’s definitely not going to happen.'"

So when do we get to go back to Stars Hollow? A year? Five years? Sherman-Palladino doesn't know, and it seems like she's not in any hurry:

"I think that the beauty of Gilmore, and the beauty of family relationship shows is, you never really run out of story. You’re going to battle your family until you’re all in the ground. Those things never resolve, doesn’t matter how much therapy you get. Ten years later, there’s still going to be [material] there to mine and to delve into."

Let's see, ten years would make Rory... 35 years old? Sounds like Gilmore Girls: The Next Generation.

While you're ticking off those ten years, check out Sherman-Palladino's upcoming HBO show, which treads Gilmore-like ground: it's about three adult sisters who live together in the city and have a love-hate relationship with their mother.
