Nashville Star Wants Another Movie

Actress Connie Britton who plays country star Rayna James in the hit ABC TV series Nashville, says that she would like do a Friday Night Lights movie according to TV Guide.

“I would love it to happen,” Britton told E! News at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner over the weekend. “I’m a big supporter of it happening.”

Britton played the part of Tami Taylor on the TV series Friday Night Lights and says while nothing is set in stone, those who were involved with the show would like to see an adaptation of the show in movie theaters.  “I think if everybody got on board, I don’t see why we couldn’t have a movie.”

That being said, I’m a bit confused.  In 1994, Friday Night Lights  hit the big screen.  It was an adaptation of the book Friday Night Lights: A Town, a Team and a Dream by H.G. Bissinger.  The book and the movie as well as the TV series followed a season of the Permian High Panthers in Odessa, Texas.

In fact, the movie starred Billy Bob Thornton as head football coach, Gary Gaines. Connie Britton played the part of his wife, Sharon Gaines.  Tim McGraw was in the movie as Charles Billingsley an alcoholic, abusive father of one of the players.

I don’t understand what new ground another movie would cover after a great book, a great 1994 movie and a good TV series.  While I love a good football movie, I think such a project would leave us all with a feeling of too much deja vu.
