ALTIt has long been considered a foregone conclusion, but the Friday Night Lights movie is happening. Peter Berg says so.

Speaking at the Television Critics Association's press tour on Monday, the multihyphenate -- who has basically been involved in every single, solitary capacity on the critically adored NBC/DirecTV football drama (and the 2004 movie) -- had this to say: "We’re writing a script. We’ve been meeting with [fellow Friday Night Lights producer] Jason Katims for the last couple of weeks. We have a real good script idea. We want to do it. We’re very serious about doing it. We intend to do it.”

For those keeping score at home, this would bring the current tally to: book > movie > TV series > movie. Where's the video game?!
