We have asked, but will we receive? Scott Porter is not positive whether or not a Friday Night Lights
movie will ever be made. With the football drama series off the air since 2011, fans are asking for the big screen reboot. However, Kyle Chandler, a star from the show, says that a movie production would be unnecessary and not add anything.
Porter played Jason Street, the star quarterback in the fan-favorite series. In an interview with Parade
, he expresses his “trepidation” about a potential film.
"It's tricky for me because Jason's story ended so well. At first, it was a kick in the gut to know that I'd be leaving the show in season three, but once I realized how they allowed Jason to leave the show, I understood."
"Out of every character on that show, you could almost fight to say that Jason won. He won at life and overcame so much. I think his future is pretty set in stone. That being said, of course if they did a film, I'd love to go back and inhabit that character once again.
"But I think there's a little bit of trepidation for all of us as to taking one more step because I feel like we all did such special and great work on the show that we just don't want to sully it."
However, while he has his doubts, Porter has revealed that he is not completely against a film project. The movie would be a continuation, and provide some further closure for fans and stars alike.
"If there's anybody that could take a book to a movie to a television show and back to the movies, it's Peter Berg and Jason Katims and all those people. If that core team is involved, then the sky is the limit."
Porter recently took to instagram to share a photo with the old cast of Friday Night Lights
during a mini reunion last month.
