"The L Word" could be following the footsteps of other popular TV series like "Sex and the City", on getting a big screen treatment. reported that series creator, writer and executive producer Ilene Chaiken has opened up about the possibility of a feature project for the Showtime's drama series at the BlogHer conference over the weekend.

The screenwriter of "Barb Wire" mentioned plans for the movie version when asked about who killed Mia Kirshner's character, Jenny Schecter. On the question, Chaiken responded that she is in the process of scripting "The L Word" movie, and added that when the movie is made, the issue of who killed Jenny "will be addressed".

"Ilene: When we make 'The L Word' movie, we will say who killed Jenny," so wrote After Ellen's Trish Bendix on Chaiken's remark on her Twitter page which is dated Saturday, July 25. "Movie is in scripting process."

"The L Word" is an American and Canadian co-production television drama series which ran from 2004 to 2009. It centers its story on the lives of a group of lesbian, bisexual and transgender people and their friends, family and lovers in the Los Angeles-area city of West Hollywood, California. Jennifer Beals, Laurel Holloman, Leisha Hailey, Katherine Moennig and Pam Grier among others star.

I hope they make a movie! I still miss the TLW so much!!! I think the movie have to be made and close all the storylines of the characters in the most wonderful way as possible...everyone should be happy like in episode 3 of season 6! I would be great if shane and molly go back together, in spite of jennys intrigue when she hides mollys letter at the attic. They were the cutest couple atnall. So I hope that Jenny is not died. She is very important character in TLW as the series is about her live in LA and her search for the true love. I believe in Ilene Chaiken that she will make Jenny to stay alive and bring all the girls to a happy ending.

This movie is a must. I want more Shane & Carmen and Helena & Dylan. And the cast HAS to be THE SAME - these actresses are irreplaceable.

We want that Shane goes back with Carmen. Bring Carmen back. She was so perfect for Shane, and also was one of the best couples in the show.

To hell with Carmen. She's wherever she is and Shane's where she is and that's all there is to it. There would be no L Word movie without Jenny and without Shane and Jenny fixing things. End of story! Without Kate *and* Mia, I'm not watching!

Movie would be great, it would make a closure on the whole Jenny thing. Shane and Carmen forever...

NO to Shane and Molly. NO to Shane and Carmen. Say that episode 607 and 608 is part of Jenny's treatment. And say that episode 606 where Jenny tells Shane that "I will always be here for you". Is the REAL END of the series.

I'm freakin out, the last episode didn't do the show justice, so I think having a movie made will be the right way to close the chapter of this six wonderfully long book.
