Glee creator Ryan Murphy has dismissed rumours that there are plans to make a movie spin-off of the hit musical TV show.
Glee stars - including Lea Michele and Cory Monteith, who play Rachel and Finn -allegedly all signed clauses in their contracts agreeing to be a part of three potential films, Hollywood Life revealed this week.
But Ryan told Entertainment Weekly: "There will be no Glee movie in the foreseeable future. Despite overtures, I and the studio [Fox] have decided we want to put our energy into the second season with no distractions for the cast."
Glee has already been renewed for a third season even though the second has not yet been filmed.
But that doesn't mean there won't be a film eventually.
The clause in the contract allegedly included the words: "[The actor] hereby grants Fox three exclusive, irrevocable options to engage [the actor] in up to, respectively, three feature-length motion pictures."
The actors signed the contracts in 2008 before beginning work on the pilot for the hit television series.
