Confirming rumors that have been swirling for a while now, one of the stars of a TV cult series said the show is headed to the big screen — again, US Weekly reports.
Connie Britton, who received two Emmy nominations as outstanding lead actress for her role on NBC and DirecTV’s “Friday Night Lights,” said a movie version of the show is “happening for realsies,” the story reports.
Britton said the project is rapidly coming together after executive producer Peter Berg announced two months ago that he was working on an adaptation of the series.
Said Britton: "Pete is totally fired up to do it and I know Jason Katims is talking about writing a script. I think it’s really a matter of … getting everyone’s busy schedules aligned and making it happen. It kind of feels like there’s a lot of commitment to it. … I for one will do my part in trying to push it along."
The show originated on the big screen, with the 2004 feature providing the basis for the TV series.
