Cue Eye Roll: “Friends” Movie in Production

Posted by thelanetrain on July 3, 2008

Everyone’s Most people’s favorite 90’s sitcom is now going to be a multimillion dollar motion picture event.  Yay?  According to The Daily Mail, all six original “Friends” will reprise their roles for an upcoming movie to be released “sometime in the next 18 months”.  The group said that they were inspired by the success of “Sex and the City” and think that a big screen adaptation of the once-popular show would be a huge success.  The friends (clockwise from left) Lisa Kudrow, Courtney Cox-Arquette, Matt LeBlanc, Jennifer Anniston, Matthew Perry, and David Schwimmer will reunite for the first time since the season finale four years ago.

One key castmember, Anniston, originally didn’t want to do the movie, but ended up jumping on board anyway.  Said one rep:

“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.”

We know Jen is famous due to her former marriage and her slew of movies under her belt, but seriously, swallow your pride!  A “Friends” movie would be great for your career and loving fans, even if it ended up being a flaming piece of shit nobody went to see.

Oh well, only time will tell if this big screen version of the Central Perk sextet will be friendly or awful.
