Ever since Friday Night Lights concluded its run on NBC with what was generally considered to be a fitting and timely end that tied the series up nicely, Internet rumors of a follow-up movie have been swirling. In 2012, Peter Berg announced that the script was nearly finished, and that only scheduling remained an issue. Connie Britton said that she had seen the whole story in 3×5 cards in Jason Katims’ office, and told him “I’d better have a good part in it!” Kyle Chandler said, “I have no interest in a Friday Night Lights movie.” It all seemed to be coming together! But would the movie ever transition from answers to interview questions that were phrased specifically to get a certain headline, no matter what the answer was, to a REAL MOVIE?! THAT WE COULD WATCH?! Uhh, well, ah…no! Nope! No, it’s dead now! Peter Berg recently spoke with Collider about it:

“There’s not gonna be a movie. We talked about it, some people thought it was a good idea, some didn’t; I’ve come to believe it’s probably not a good idea and I seriously doubt it’s gonna happen.”

Wait a second…probably not a good idea? Seriously doubt it’s gonna happen? Sounds like this thing could happen after all! #FNLMovie2015 #Connie4Tami

  1. …Wasn’t the show based on a movie?

    • Which was based on a book! So I’m pretty sure the next step is to write a book based on the TV show, make a movie about that, and then base a TV show on that movie.

    • I just saw part of the movie recently! The characters all have different names! It was confusing! Buddy Garrity is in it, as is Mrs. Coach with some AMAZING hair. She always has amazing hair.

  2. Seems to me that all this needs to get going again is an injection of shark DNA.

  3. Probably too tough to get all the stars together, like Jesse Plemons and Michael B. Jordan and the state of Texas.

  4. Clear eyes. Full hearts. Not gonna happen.

  5. You guys, I’ve never understood Connie Britton’s rise to fame. I think she’s a horrible actress. What is the deal?
