The twisty story all started to unravel itself Thursday, when Grantland.com editor in chief Bill Simmons tweeted that, “Peter Berg told us he wants to do an FNL movie with Chandler/Britton off the final episode.” After that, multiple sources told me it’s no pipe dream. Berg, who directed the original feature and shepherded the NBC series with exec producer Jason Katims, is working behind the scenes to make it a reality. (TV Line)
So as of right now, Peter Berg wants to make the movie. In the same way that Ron Howard wants to make an Arrested Development movie, and the way the cast of Party Down would like to make a movie. Until there’s a commitment, nothing is certain. Come on Universal, if you like it. Put a ring on it.
