Get OUT! Could there be another "Seinfeld" reunion in the works? Possibly on the big screen? We're getting very mixed signals from the stars and creators of "Seinfeld," but a lot of the signs are pointing to yes. Or are they just giving us the old switcheroo?

Jerry Seinfeld and co-creator Larry David are obviously masters of the "Seinfeld" domain, and while Seinfeld's recent Reddit AMA teased that the two had written a script for something that's "big, huge, gigantic," neither one will confirm if it's a "Seinfeld" movie. Yet.

So we've compiled our own list of seven signs that a "Seinfeld" movie is coming. Giddyup!

1. Jerry and George reunited, seemingly in "Seinfeld" wardrobe, at Monk's, aka Tom's Restaurant:

This photo set the Internet on fire, and for good reason. While the two were likely shooting an episode of Seinfeld's hit Web series, "Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee" — especially since Gothamist snapped a photo of the camera crew's gear, labeled very clearly with "Comedians" —  the fact that Larry David was also there raises a lot of questions.

Here's David leaving Tom's right before Jerry and Jason:

2. Seinfeld used the word "script" when talking about his mystery project with David, so while it could be a Super Bowl commercial or a one-hour TV special or even a play, which David seems to be teasing now, nothing says big, huge, and gigantic quite like a movie.

Plus, not that there's anything wrong with wanting to try something new and do a play, but I think we all remember how David's last (faux) attempt at Broadway went.



3. Another Seinfeld AMA confession: "You may have noticed that I tend to quit things soon after doing them, like TV series, animated movies, book writing, Broadway plays. I do feel very strongly in stopping the second I feel like I'm not excited anymore, whatever I'm doing." But he didn't say anything about live-action movies now, did he?

4. The fan excitement is still alive — and even a bit reignited lately. "Seinfeld" remains one of the greatest sitcoms of all time, and reruns are on all hours of the day ensuring a new rabid fanbase, but fan campaigns to remember the great moments of the series have started cropping up again, like this spoof poster for faux "Seinfeld" movie-within-the-show "Rochelle Rochelle," created by artist Jay Shells.



These posters were plastered around New York a few months back (and then quickly disappeared thanks to sticky-fingered fans), prompting a lot of people to wonder if they were part of some stealthy "Seinfeld" movie viral marketing. Unfortunately when Yahoo TV reached out to Shells, he confirmed that the project was "entirely self-initiated," saying "I haven't gotten any recognition from any Seinfeld persona," wondering if they'd heard about it at all. But if they did hear about it, maybe it got their wheels turning ...

5. While a lot has been said about the controversial "Seinfeld" finale since it aired in 1998, Seinfeld has no regrets. "I don't believe in trying to change the past" … but picking up with the gang in the future is another thing entirely.

6. And they've already done just that, albeit in a spoof-ier format. Jerry, George, Elaine, and Kramer had no problem reuniting and revisiting the show for an episode of Larry David's HBO series "Curb Your Enthusiasm" in 2009, giving us some insight into what the gang would be up to today.

Elaine has a daughter named Isabel, and "Uncle Jerry" donated the sperm — although apparently Kramer also offered. And George was a multimillionaire thanks to his iToilet app, but lost it all — including his hot wife, played by Elisabeth Shue — when he invested all his money with Bernie Madoff. Because of course.

7. Star Julia Louis-Dreyfus is now straddling the line as an awards darling in film and TV — but she's got the movie star diva thing down. Just look at how comfortable she was rubbing elbows with the Hollywood heavy hitters at Sunday's Golden Globes, sunglasses on, ecigarette in hand, rejecting Reese Witherspoon's selfie request:


What do you say, "Seinfeld" fans? Are we making something out of nothing, or does a "Seinfeld" movie suddenly seem possible? Either way, the day we find out that something, anything, is really real, it's gonna be spectacular.
