FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS fans aren’t the only people who’d like to see the book-turned-movie-turned-TV show re-imagined as a new film.
Connie Britton, who played the beloved Tami Taylor (wife of Kyle Chandler’s Coach Eric Taylor) on the series, says she’s hoping the rumored film will soon become a reality.
“I would love it to happen,” Connie, who now stars as country queen Rayna James on ABC’s NASHVILLE told E!. “I’m a big supporter of it happening. I don’t know if we will see it or not.”
The actress said FNL writer/director Peter Berg is definitely working on making it happen.
“I know [the screenplay] was being written and Peter Berg is really serious about it,” she said. “So I think if everybody got on board, I don’t see why we couldn’t have a movie.”
