Joel McHaleinterpreter of Jeff Winger, spoke about it in a recent interview with TVLine. The actor said:

Jeff Winger’s interpreter goes on to say that the film “yes it will”is that “When the strike is over, we’ll go back to set and we’ll do it. And I’m sure that (the creator of the series) And (Harmon) he’s going to put in like 12 lines about how long it took us to get together. But we’ll get there. We’re getting there. It just takes a moment.”

What will the film be about?
