‘Battleship’ director Peter Berg, who adapted the Texas loving football series ‘Friday Night Lights’ for TV, has announced that he is writing a script to continue the story of Coach Eric Taylor and Tami Taylor. Although production is still far away, Jason Katims also confirmed that it’s in the works.

According to TVLine’s Michael Ausiellio and Vlanda Gelman, Berg made the announcement while attending the Television Critics Association press tour, sharing that he and his partner Jason Katims are “very serious” about making the film and “intend to do it.”

Since the series that stars Super 8’s Kyle Chandler, Connie Britton, actress Aimee Teagarden and Taylor Kitsch came to an end after five seasons last month this should be exciting news for fans who can now look forward to the return of their favorite characters.

Since Taylor’s exit from the small Dillon, Texas town, Berg’s ‘Friday Night Lights’ movie would center “around Kyle and Connie and bring [in] some new characters and then bring in some of our familiar faces. We have, I think, a really fresh, very original take on it. We’re very serious about wanting to do it… If all goes well, we would shoot it next year at some point.”
