It seems that the cast of Friends is looking to the success of the Sex and the City Movie. That’s right, rumor has it that Friends is coming to the big screen.
It’s said that talk of a movie started as soon as the show ended, but with the SATC success, the talk started again!
A source said: ‘Jennifer [Aniston], Courteney [Cox] and the rest of the cast [Matthew Perry, Lisa Kudrow, David Schwimmer, and Matt LeBlanc] are keen to reprise their roles, under the right circumstances.
‘The box office success of Sex And The City has really got their wheels spinning about how a Friends film could be just as big, if done right.
‘Timing and the script are really important, but now that Courteney and Jen both have production companies, they can potentially get very involved in those decisions.’
And it’s no surprise that they want to say it was one actor in particular that had not been wanting to do the movie….
‘As the biggest star of the Friends franchise, Jennifer can’t help but look at what’s happened with Sarah Jessica Parker and the Sex And The City film and be a little jealous.
‘What’s held back a Friends movie so far is that people were worried that Jennifer had simply become too famous to play Rachel again.
‘But the truth is that Jennifer is finally willing to do it, and she’d love to work with that whole team of actors and producers again.
‘She says she and Courteney have already talked this summer about what they want out of a Friends movie, and if deals can be made with them, everything else can fall into place rather quickly.
I really don’t know if this is a good idea. But, I’d probably go and see it. Because I am a sucker, that’s why.
