FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS MOVIE CONFIRMED
NBC

Rejoice, fans of "Friday Night Lights!" With clear eyes and full hearts, it's happening -- "Friday Night Lights" is coming to the big screen.

"It's happening for realsies," Connie Britton told Us Weekly. Britton earned an Emmy nomination for her role as Coach Taylor's wife -- Tami Taylor.

In August, the show's executive producer Peter Berg announced his plans to adapt the cult hit series into a movie, and it looks like Kyle Chandler's surprising Emmy win has kept the movie momentum going.

"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 told the magazine. "It kind of feels like there's a lot of commitment to it."

Fans of "Friday Night Lights" can now catch Britton is the new FX series "American Horror Story," where she plays a role very different than Mrs. Taylor.
