- FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS FROM MOVIE TO TV TO MOVIE
Something quite unique is happening in Hollywood right now, we will be seeing a movie that got turned into a TV series, gets turned back into a Movie!! This doesn’t happen all to often…
But, Friday Night Lights will be returning to the big screen!!
Executive-producer Peter Berg has confirmed that he's planning to bring the beloved TV show back to the big screen where it all began (the show was, of course, reproduced from the 2004 film directed by Berg himself).
"We're writing a script," he said at the Television Critics Association's. "We've been meeting with [fellow FNL executive-producer] Jason Katims for the last couple of weeks. We have a real good script idea. We want to do it. We're very serious about doing it. We intend to do it."
The film would see Kyle Chandler and Connie Britton reprising their roles as Coach and Tami Taylor.
"The goal would be to focus the film around Kyle and Connie and bring [in] some new characters and then bring in some of our familiar faces," says Berg. "We have, I think, a really fresh, very original take on it. We're very serious about wanting to do it… If all goes well, we would shoot it next year at some point."
