"Friday Night Lights" executive producer Peter Berg said work has started on a script for a movie based on the television show, reports TVLine.com.
“We’re writing a script,” Berg said at the Television Critics Association press tour. “We’ve been meeting with [fellow ‘Lights’ exec 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 focus on Kyle and Connie and add some new characters, the story notes. The project would bring "Friday Night Lights" back to the big screen, as it was first a 2004 film before debuting as a TV show in 2006.
