Connie Britton says there will be a 'Friday Night Lights' movie




Here's some news the 12 people who watched Friday Night Lights until the end will no doubt love to hear: There’s going to be a Friday Night Lights movie. We thought they already did that — it was called Friday Night Lights. Texas town ... high school football ... lotsa drama ... ring a bell?

Erstwhile Tami Taylor actress Connie Britton told Us the flick was indeed on its way. "It's happening for realsies," the 44-year-old said. "(Exec producer) Pete (Berg) 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."

Oh, well, so it’ll happen eventually, just not any time soon. At least she has American Horror Story to keep her busy. The ratings for that one were pretty good this week.
