I'm kind of bummed to deliver this news, but it doesn't look like that Friday Night Lights movie that fans we were hoping for is going to happen. We've been hearing about it inching towards production since the series ended in 2011. Creator Peter Berg seemed very optimistic about it in previous interviews, but in a recent interview with Collider, he says that it's not going to happen,
“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.”
With shows like Veronica Mars and Entourage making the move to the big screen, I thought for sure there was a chance. But not anymore. Life will go on, but it will go on without a Friday Night Lights movie. I would have loved to see a movie, but I'm also completely satisfied with how the series ended, so I can't complain. You can if you want though!
