Will There Be a Friends Movie?

Friends cast

broke box office records. Get Smart had a first place finish. Why shouldn’t there be a Friends movie?

According to UK’s Daily Mail, a big-screen adaptation of the NBC hit has finally been greenlighted. Although a reunion seemed extremely unlikely when the comedy ended in 2004, the success of SATC has apparently given the show’s main six hope.

And while could definitely do without the paycheck, she is reportedly willing to play along. “Jennifer, Courteney and the rest of the cast are keen to reprise their roles, under the right circumstances,” said a source.

FX Cancels Courteney Cox’s Dirt

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Drama, Prime Time, FX, Cancellations,

Courtney Cox on DirtAlthough she tried hard to set aside her nice girl persona, fans apparently had a tough time accepting as a badass. Either that, or they simply didn’t like her show.

After only 2 years on air (1.5 if you take the writers’ strike into account), Arquette’s has been yanked from the FX network. Interestingly enough, this is about the same length of time Matt LeBlanc’s Joey managed to stay on air. The drama also hung around longer than Matthew Perry’s Studio 60 and Lisa Kudrow’s The Comeback.

Despite earning 3.7 million viewers for its January 2007 debut, the program eventually experienced a dramatic decline. By April, Dirt‘s second season finale was down to 1.06 million. I guess that kiss with gal pal Aniston didn’t have much lasting power.
