Amy-Sherman Palladino Leaves Door Open on Gilmore Girls Movie


One of the most heavily visited old posts on the blog is about the possibility of Amy Sherman-Palladino returning to do a movie of The Gilmore Girls and possibly reveal the four final words she intended for the series. Sherman-Palladino had stated long before the end of the show that she already had the final four words in mind but wound up leaving for the final season, leaving the show to go a different route.

For those who have been wondering what the final word were, they were: “Rory, you were adopted.” No, just kidding. Ausiello continues to try to get the final words out of her:

My ongoing mission to get Amy Sherman-Palladino to cough up those elusive final four Gilmore Girl words is finally starting to bear some juicy fruit. Not that particular plum, no, but at least for the first time, she’s revealing details about what the series finale would’ve involved, had she stuck with the show. Hey, it’s a freaking start.

“I wanted different things for Rory,” confesses AS-P. “I wanted her to follow a different sort of path… [go] off on her own adventure, which I guess she sort of did. I haven’t [actually] seen the last season, but I heard about it from other people.”

Although Sherman-Palladino declines to detail her intended journey for Rory, suffice it to say it would not have involved her joining Obama on the campaign trail. And while she’s also mum on what she had in store for the rest of the Gilmore gang, she does hint that she “had planned different paths” for them, too. “I don’t want to totally say [what my ideas were], because if there is a movie in the making, I’m going to be basically delving back into where I left off, and then I’m kind of [screwed].”

Yep, you read that correctly. AS-P, who’s currently hard at work on a new dramedy for HBO, is not giving up on the possibility of a Gilmore movie. “Anything can happen,” she insists. “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,’” she adds. “I would do that for you, my friend. But I don’t want to say that. Because 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.”

Unfortunately there is not much real news here. All he reveals is that Amy Sherman-Palladino had plans for Rory which, not unexpectedly, were different form what was aired by a different writer. The possibility of a movie remains open but this is hardly an announcement. At least they are not closing the door on this and perhaps it is encouraging that Amy S-P does not want to ruin the chances of a movie delving back to where she left off.

    My mom and I used to watch Gilmore Girls alllll the time together. Yeah, that sounds stereotypical, but my mom has MS and my dad is a dairy farmer. While I was in high school, my sister was already in college, and Gilmore Girls was getting really popular. We had a lot of evenings together, just me and her. We’re super close like Lorelei and Rory, although not close in age :). Trust me, when I was 16, we didn’t get along AT ALL. We started watching GG: and BAM. We were best friends. Absolutely. My freshman year in college was GGs final season… We’d call each other every Tuesday night when the episode ended to talk about it. I disliked the ending because so many things that were CONSTANTLY talked about DID NOT get wrapped up. It wasn’t a BAD ending… but not good enough to be THE final ending. I’m sorry, it just didn’t suit well with me, or my mother. I still watch GG re-runs. Every day, pretty much. I think it’s because I’m still hoping for that better ending. I think a wedding needs to take place, I think we need to SEE Rory become successful. We need to know what happens to Jess and Lane and everyone. We need to see where this would go. I have tons of ideas for it, I wish I could write it my self! If any of the higher-ups in the business read this: tell Amy she needs to do this. For her fans. For herself. GG needs to be wrapped up properly.

    OMG! A gilmore movie would be AMAZING!!! i have personally watched every episode at least 4 times but i absolutely hated season 7 it just wasn’t the same without amy. my mum and sisters also love the show but not as much as me. I’m from australia and when season 7 aired over here i was soo disappointed because it can’t just end that way! AMY please make a movie and give those hardcore fans like myself proper closure. LONG LIVE GILMORE GIRLS!

    Please ASP, give us a GG movie already. Its been WAY too long. I’m currently re-watching the series (I’m in the middle of season 6), and it makes me so sad knowing where this story left off. It was all wrong, and the only thing that can make it alright in my book, is a movie (made correctly by ASP!)!!!!!

    I think she should just sit everyone down, pitch the idea and then put us out of our misery.

    Just watched every episode from seasons 1-7 in 2 weeks, and LOVED every minute of it 🙂  I would definitely love to see their stories wrapped up properly with a GG movie! 🙂

    Please make a movie. I love the GG. I want to see Logan and Rory find each other and fall back in love and get married. When Rory told Logan no it made me cry because they remind me so much of my relationship. Please make a movie or a final series that wraps it all up.

    I re-watch GG on a regular basis. I LOVE it! It is more than a show to me. It makes me feel happy, makes me laugh, makes me cry. I sound crazy, I know, but I love the Gilmores. I would love to see a movie get made, would love even more the show coming back though. Man…I can’t even say how happy that would make me. And really…what is Alexis doing? She has time now. 🙂

    I haven’t seen any talk about a movie for a while, but I haven’t seen anything that prevents it from being done. I believe that the Stars Hollow set is still up on the Warner back lot. A while back (after the show ended) Bill Prady of tweeted that he walked thru the set on the way to the Big Bang set. The few times I’ve seen interviews with the old cast where it was mentioned they expressed interest. A couple of the cast members are leads on other shows now, but plenty of tv stars have also done movies between seasons.
