The long-gestating Friday Night Lights feature film has been sacked, according to exec producer Peter Berg.
“There’s not gonna be a movie,” Berg told Collider.com. “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.”
Among those who thought it was a good idea was FNL leading lady Connie Britton, who has been championing the Jason Katims-penned project for well over a year.
However, Britton’s FNL hubby, Kyle Chandler, has been less than enthusiastic about transferring Coach Taylor to the big screen.
“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.”
Which side of the FNL debate did you fall on?
