Friday Night Lights was originally released in 2004 starring Billy Bob Thorton.  It was based on the Midland/Odessa high school football  rivalry. 

 

The movie spawned the TV Show Friday Night Lights.

 

According to a article with Connie Britton in Us Weekly:

"It's happening for realsies," Britton, 44 -- who earned an Emmy nod for her role as Tami Taylor -- tells Us Weekly.

Since the NBC/DirecTV drama's executive producer Peter Berg announced plans to adapt the series in August, Britton says the pieces have been quickly falling into place.

"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," says Britton. "It kind of feels like there's a lot of commitment to it."

 

 

I am actually super excited about a Friday Night Lights movie based on the TV Show.  I loved the original movie and I loved the TV Show.  I cannot wait to see the Taylor family brought back to life and hopefully the Dylan Panther/Lions blend.
