Berg directed the first adaptation of H.G. Bissinger’s landmark football book Friday Night Lights - concerning a small-town Texan team’s 1988 season – in 2004. He later executive produced the acclaimed television series – loosely inspired by the tale – with Jason Katims acting as show-runner.
Berg first expressed his interest in making another FNL film when the series wrapped up last July.
Now, it seems the only thing standing in the way of the project coming to fruition is the availability of the stars.
“Jason Katims, who was our super talented show-runner, is about done with the script… You never know. So much of these things become scheduling. Kyle [Chandler] is busy, Adrianne [Palicki] is busy, Taylor [Kitsch] is busy, Connie Britton is busy, but if we can get everyone in the same room at the same time, we all want to do it. We’re not done with ‘Friday Night Lights.’ “
