“Friday Night Lights” Headed For The Big Screen!
Hallelujah! “Friday Night Lights,” which just ended its five season television run a few weeks ago, is coming to be the big screen, possibly as soon as 2013. Creator Peter Berg confirmed the rumor, saying that the movie would pick up when the show left off and would center around main characters, Coach Eric Taylor and his wife Tami. That would mean the divine Kyle Chandler and Connie Britton would be back for the film, but it’s still up in the air how many of the show’s more popular cast members/characters would join them. After all, in the series finale, the Taylors moved to Philadelphia, leaving Texas behind. I can only hope that somehow Berg and his fellow writers find a way to get a little Tim Riggins action in there. Assistant Coach? Taylor family pool boy? Whatever. In conclusion: clear eyes, full hearts, can’t lose! [NY Daily News]
