Clear eyes and full hearts don’t mean jack when it comes to the Friday Night Lights movie, the one that would pick up where the TV series left off, the one we’ve been hearing about since the show wrapped its five-year run in 2011. Peter Berg, who directed and cowrote the original 2004 film and went on to executive-produce the series, tells Collider, “There’s not gonna be a movie.”
A part of me is sad — because I would have been interested in seeing those characters again — but the other side of me is all right with this decision. It means there isn’t a chance it sucks. The show went out so perfectly with one of my favorite “last episodes” — and I think I’m ok with not being resurrected.
