One of the most polarizing figures in pop culture currently is Lena Dunham. Being opinionated will always grab headlines, and she has become a master of it. And her off-screen person hasn’t affected her popularity on-screen yet.
Dunham is the creator, writer, and star of the HBO series Girls, which has been a success by all standards, and the most recent season drew some of its best reviews to date. As it heads into its final season, Dunham has more plans for Girls and thinks it could involve a movie.
In a roundtable discussion with The Hollywood Reporter, Dunham and show-runner Jenni Konner discuss the possibility. While Konner is less optimistic about the possibility of a movie, Dunham believes this isn’t the last you’ve seen of the characters:
“Oh, we’re doing the movie. I’d just want to leave enough space so that we are finding them in a super different place than we left them, but if HBO paid for two ‘Sex and the City’ ones, they’d better pay for one of ours.”
Konner does follow up and lets Dunham know that it was the movie division that paid for the Sex in the City films, not the television division.
Either way, is there an appetite for more of these characters? Adam Driver has made a star turn. but other than that, it wouldn’t make much sense from a marketability standpoint. Fans aren’t exactly begging for more of the show.
The premiere episode for the final season airs February 12th on HBO.
