Friday Night Lights Movie: No Go, Peter Berg Says

by at . Comments

There will be no movie of the show that was based on a movie that was based on a book.

Peter Berg finally made that clear over the weekend.

Following a great deal of back and forth over whether or not a new Friday Night Lights movie would be made, the producer told in an interview:

“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.”

Connie Britton has expressed interest in the past of reprising her beloved role of Tami Taylor on the big screen, but star Kyle Chandler has always been hesitant.

“My general attitude about Friday Night Lights is, it was a great movie with Billy Bob [Thorton, who starred in the original film] and it was a great TV show,” Chandler told MTV News last year. “They ended it at exactly the right time and in exactly the right way, as well.”

We couldn't adore this series more, but we also can't help but agree.

Forget going to the theater to see Coach Taylor and company. You can sit back and watch Friday Night Lights online right here and now instead.

Taylor Kitsch said the same thing to Vulture. And it would NOT be the same without Riggs. Texas Forever.


I agree with "Coach Taylor"...FNL had one of the best series finales EVER. Leave the legacy alone. That being said, I miss it like crazy!!
