'Friday Night Lights' Movie Kickstarter? Adrienne Palicki Hints At Project

Mar 26, 2013

Former series star Adrienne Palicki spilled the beans to Screenrant about the potential route the much-discussed movie could be taking.

"I think they’re starting the Kickstarter, which is insane ... I have multiple feelings on it. I love it so much and I’m afraid that a movie might ruin it and I don’t want that to happen," Palicki said.

"Friday Night Lights" ended its TV run in 2010 after five seasons on NBC/DirecTV and talk of a movie followup quickly began in July 2011. Since then, there's been little progress -- besides several of the stars discussing it -- but with the success the "Veronica Mars" movie had via Kickstarter, several creators of cult-hit shows have been exploring that option to revive their fan favorite creations.

"I think that cult hits is exactly what our model works for," "Veronica Mars" creator Rob Thomas told The Huffington Post about other show revivals via Kickstarter. "I think an 'Arrested Development' movie could've been done this way without a doubt. I think we're the perfect example of this. I don't think it would work nearly as well with a new product, with something that didn't have a brand identity, something that didn't have built-in fans."
