Scott Patterson (Luke Danes on Gilmore Girls) recently revived the hints about a potential Gilmore Girls movie. You know, as if the upcoming reunion at the ATX Festival was not enough to get people’s hopes up again. Scott sat down with Kevin Porter and Demi Adejuyigbe of the Gilmore Guys Podcast on May 20th to talk about the show. During the interview, he shared some hints about the real possibility of a Gilmore Girls reunion – one that seems to be going just beyond a few people pushing for it:
“There are talks [of a reunion] going on at the moment. I can’t really go into any detail, but there is some activity. So I’m hopeful, and you know, I’m in. I think it would be a big event, and I think it would be a great fan celebration. They deserve it.”
“They [the fans] do deserve a resolution. They waited seven years for a wedding they never got. That’s a bitter pill to swallow if you’re a lifelong fan.”
“I’m always conflicted about [a Gilmore reunion]. It wasn’t a satisfying ending. And with all this time that’s gone by, would you actually feel disappointed because it wouldn’t be the thing you’d wanted all this time? I don’t know.”
“I think there’s a lot of territory left unexplored that we could explore in a limited series or a TV movie or feature film, whatever that may be. I think it really just comes down to the script. I think everybody would jump on board.”
Scott also talked about how he is Team Dean when it comes to who Rory should end up with. Given the number of years that have passed, I wonder if it will be Team Dean or Team Jess or Team Logan… or someone she has met in the many years since. What’s your take?
“He [Dean] was the original one. He was the most soulful and the most poetic. But Jess was so obviously the wrong one — he was so obviously the train wreck. He was the fling that she had to have. It was always Dean because he was so in love with her.”
I wonder if we could ever see Dean as soulful and poetic again after his life on Supernatural?
