'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia' movie could be on the way 'someday'

Philadelphia's television pride and the greatest sitcom of the last fifteen years could be headed for the big screen, according to one of the stars from "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia."

Just as withdrawal sets in after the show's 12th season—a long hiatus is in store for the FXX series—a huge hint at the Gang's lofty ambitions came in the form of a Twitter AMA with Glenn Howerton, a.k.a. Dennis, the show's resident psychopath.

Whenever the series does return, Howerton will likely be absent from the cast as he pursues NBC's new comedy "AP Bio" alongside comedian Patton Oswalt.

But if his answers to fans' questions are any indication, Howerton is bullish on the future of "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia." Asked if he would be interested in making a movie for the hit show, Howerton said he's on board with the idea.

If "It's Always Sunny" goes the way of "South Park," "Sex and the City" and "Starsky and Hutch," it will surely blow all of those films out of the water. It would go where "Seinfeld" never did and immediately catapult into the pantheon of adaptations as a plum for the city of Philadelphia, albeit not the most flattering representation. 

Howerton also took the time to answer a number of fun questions from fans, cluing us in his own favorite sitcom and other "It's Always Sunny" trivia. 

What's your favorite sitcom?

Favorite cast member to work with? 

Who is the funniest actor on Sunny between takes? 

So Glenn ... what did you do today? 

Are we real or (is) our reality just a simulation?

Some time between now and an answer to that question, please let this movie be for real.
