Are Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry and David Schwimmer about to reunite for a Friends movie?
Yes, they are — according to new reports!
Britain’s News of The World newspaper — citing James Michael Tyler, who played Gunther — claims the fivesome have all signed up to reprise their characters on the big screen.
“Friends: The Movie is definitely on,” said Tyler. “I still keep in touch with a lot of the cast and they say that they are really keen.
“The one thing I can tell you is that I am definitely on board to do the film.
“I really loved my time on the show and I am looking forward to meeting up with the old gang again.
“I just hope we can do justice to the show in a film.”
Friends creators David Crane and Marta Kauffman will write and produce the film, due in cinemas in the summer of 2011.
“The cast haven’t set the world alight since the show finished,” a source said.
“But this film could relight some of their flagging careers in a big way.”
“But everyone knew the story had to be right and well written. Getting the creators on board was a massive step forward for the project.
“The show did lose a lot of its shine in the last few seasons, but with the actors all in the forties it would be a real interest to see how their characters have developed.”
Kudrow — who played Phoebe — has previously spoken of her desire to make a Friends movie. “It would be so fun to be with all those people again,” she said.
“But our show was not like Sex and the City — ours was multi-camera, in front of a live audience.
“It’s a completely different feel. You’d have to bring the tone down, and I don’t know how it would be. I’ll just stay open.”
