Connie Britton Says a 'Friday Night Lights' Movie is 'For Realsies' Happening

Connie BrittonNow that the 'Arrested Development' movie may actually be happening, let's turn our attention to another beloved TV show that fans are hoping will get a movie: 'Friday Night Lights.'

Yes, we know it was a film before it was a beloved TV show. The powers that be have made it known they are working on a script, and now Tami Taylor herself is fanning the movie flames.

"It's happening for realsies," Connie Britton told Us Weekly.

Britton was nominated for an Emmy twice for her role as the steady wife of Coach Taylor, played Kyle Chandler. Chandler took home an Emmy for his work on the final season of the series.

In July, executive producer Peter Berg told press he was working behind the scenes to get the movie off the ground. It seems the project has gotten more traction after Chandler took home the acting statue and Jason Katims won an Emmy for the 'Friday Night Lights' series finale script.

"Pete 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," Britton, who is currently starring in FX's 'American Horror Story,' said.

"I for one will do my part in trying to push it along," she said.

I didn't know of Connie Britton until seeing her on new show, AHS. I'm sure she's had a very lucrative career so far, she's good. The thing is, her character has been predictable and kind of blah these first few episodes, not really revealing her acting capabilities. Until now, Vivien is intense, and the family's plight is wickedly clever.

What got me hooked was Dylan McDermott, episode 1 or 2, where they showed his butt while he was masturbating. Yes indeed, that's all it took.....

Considering how horrible American Horror Story is (and the numbers for the premiere were almost as horrible), I think Connie will be very free to do the movie.
