‘Friday Night Lights’ executive producer Peter Berg has confirmed that a script for another movie in the franchise is currently being written, TVLine is reporting. He wants to bring Emmy nominees Kyle Chandler and Connie Britton, who both appeared on the show during its entire five season run, back to reprise their roles of Coach and Tami Taylor in the new film.

At the Television Critics Associations’ summer press tour, Berg also said he’s been meeting with fellow ‘Friday Night Lights’ executive producer Jason Katims. “We have a real good script idea. We want to do it. We’re very serious about doing it. We intend to do it,” Berg added.

Berg also said that the goal is to focus on Chandler and Britton’s characters, but also bring in some other characters from the show, as well as new ones. “We have, I think, a really fresh, very original take on it…If all goes well, we would shoot it next year at some point,” he added.
