Ladies and gentlemen, the “Friday Night Lights” movie is happening “for realsies.”

Us Weekly caught up with the cult TV’s show’s Connie Britton, who confirmed that “Friday Night Lights” is in fact returning to the big screen. The series’ executive producer Peter Berg had announced his plan to adapt the series back in August after months of rumors, and Britton said she couldn’t be more thrilled.

“Pete is totally fired up to do it and I know Jason Katims is talking about writing a script. I think it’s really a matter of…getting everyone’s busy schedules aligned and making it happen,” Britton said. “It kind of feels like there’s a lot of commitment to it.”

The woman better known as Tami Taylor currently has a pretty busy schedule. She just signed on to Ryan Murphy’s latest television series, “American Horror Story,” which premiered yesterday on FX. She plays one of the show’s central characters, Vivien Harmen.

This has been the week of good news for TV-to-film adaptation hopefuls. The week was kicked off with the news that “Arrested Development” was getting a mini-series and movie in 2013, and then a few days later Keifer Sutherland confirmed that the “24” movie is well on its way to completion.

It’s interesting to note that “Friday Night Lights” actually started off as a 2004 movie directed by Berg that he adapted from the H.G. Bissinger book of the same name. Berg then went on to create a show based on the story, which premiered on NBC in 2006. Though “Friday Night Lights” struggled with ratings over its five seasons, it was one of the most critically acclaimed shows on television in recent years.

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
