Friends: The Movie?3.07.08 # News # 9 Comments
Friends: The Movie? Such a thing would have been unthinkable back in 2004 when the series ended and the cast left Central Perk for their numerous individual film projects. But today those projects have all but dried up. Gone is the era of Courteney Cox starring in Scream, Matt LeBlanc headlining Lost In Space and Matthew Perry being a romantic lead. Jennifer Aniston hasn’t been on the radar since The Break-Up and David Schwimmer has had to resort to directing (Run Fat Boy Run, which flopped in the States).
The Daily Mail says it is now confirmed that Warner Brothers has given Friends: The Movie the greenlight to start shooting “within 18 months”.
What’s sparked this decision now? – Sex And The City. The movie version has made over $300m worldwide, far beyond industry expectations, and it has been generally well received by critics.
In the last couple of years it’s claimed that only Aniston has been dragging her heels about a big screen version, but now even she is sold.
We know from past experience that British tabloids are not exactly reliable. ‘Nicholas Cage as Magnum PI’ turned out to be complete b.s., but, then again, they were the first to say the last Harry Potter would be split into two movies – it sounded like nonsense but turned out to be absolutely true. So how accurate this claim is is anybody’s guess, for now.
