Switched off: 'Friday Night Lights,' the movie

Well, this gives us a case of the sads.

Contrary to rumors that have circulated since the beloved TV show ended, "Friday Night Lights" will not be made into a movie, at least according to executive producer Peter Berg.

“There’s not gonna be a movie. We talked about it, some people thought it was a good idea, some didn't," Berg tells Collider. "I’ve come to believe it’s probably not a good idea and I seriously doubt it’s gonna happen."

The show, which is based on a 2004 film of the same name, ended after five seasons in 2011, with a well-regarded series finale. Star Taylor Kitsch, who played heartthrob football star Tim Riggins, shared Berg's opinion, telling Vulture that a film is just not a good idea.

"I'll just say no. No, period," Kitsch stated. "I'm not doing it. I'm never gonna be in that movie. There was already a movie! And the show ended f---in' spot-on. We're good."

Do you think there should be a film based on the TV series, or should they leave it as is? Tell us below!
