Friday Night Lights may return with another film, one based on the show

07.18.2011

A TV show getting its own movie can serve as a nice relief for something that was cut down in its prime and never got to finish telling its story. I think the best example of this would be Firefly's SERENITY, and possibly the upcoming Arrested Development movie, if it ever gets made.

It seems a bit strange that a show like Friday Night Lights, which had five whole seasons to tell its tale, would be getting its own feature. And it's even stranger when you remember that the original show came after a theatrical movie in the first place.

But Peter Berg is seriously considering the project which would feature all the main cast members and pick off where the final season left off. It wasn't exactly a cliffhanger, but there is always another football season to be played after all.

FNL's strength was in its character development, built up over a season, which made it in my mind one of the best dramas on TV, if not THE best. Granted we all know and love the characters at this point, but are they going to cram an entire season of football into a movie like all other films in that genre do? That would be quite a departure for the show.

Extra Tidbit: So, when's that 24 movie coming, huh?

Possibly

I love the show. Absolutely love it. And while I'd be skeptical about a(nother) film, they've delivered interesting plot turns almost the entire 5 seasons, Landry's self-defense killing of Tyra's would-be rapist notwithstanding. If they had an interesting place to take the story, I'd really be up for it. Just think of the ramifications on future shows - critically-acclaimed show, never finding an audience, but getting a film after series finale.

Nuh uh

Ugh ... no, no, NO. There was already a 'Friday Night Lights' movie ... it was called 'Friday Night Lights.' The show ended just as it should, there's no story left to tell.

Look I love this show with everything I got in me. One of the greatest shows ever made. Having said that, PLEASE DO NOT make a movie. It ended perfectly and the story does not need to continue. Let it be.

I discovered this show on Netflix a couple months ago. Its a brilliant show. Havent watched the final season yet as it isnt on instant stream. Kyle Chandler and Connie Britton are great leads and would love to see a film with this cast.
