While doing press for her new film The Good Guy (opening in select cities this Friday, February 19) Alexis Bledel (Rory on Gilmore Girls) once again fielded questions about a possible Gilmore Girls film from E!Online’s Marc Malkin (you can also watch a video of Alexis talking to Marc on E’s site, which I can’t embed here). Don’t get too excited, like all the other cast members, Alexis admits that nothing is in the works right now, but never say never!
She does however, seem a bit cautious about what the movie would be about:
“I don’t know what story is left to tell…But I’d very curious to read a script.
Given Rory would be in her late 20s by now, it also might make sense that her character would possibly be pregnant in a potential movie, and to this Rory says, she’s surprised it didn’t happen sooner:
“I actually always thought they were going to do that in the series. Since Lorelai got pregnant early, I thought my character was supposed to get pregnant early because she had all these boyfriends. Rory always had boyfriends.”
That’s an interesting question to think about. Statistically, teen mothers are more likely to have children who are also teen mothers, so Alexis’s thinking is not off the mark. However, one of the themes of the show was Lorelai’s determination to have Rory not end up that way, which is why she was so desperate to get her into Chilton and so distraught when she left Yale.
What do you think of Alexis’s comments on Rory’s character? And what do you think the movie could be about? Rory and Logan? Lorelai as a grandmother? Let’s hear your plot ideas!
