Friends Movie On The Way?

Actresses JENNIFER ANISTON and COURTENEY COX are reportedly keen to turn hit TV show FRIENDS into a movie after witnessing the box office draw of SEX AND THE CITY: THE MOVIE.
Friends came to an end in 2004 after a 10-year run.
Rumours of a reunion have repeatedly been denied by former castmembers Cox, Aniston, Matthew Perry, David Schwimmer, Matt LeBlanc and Lisa Kudrow.
But now it appears the stars may be ready to return to Central Perk to cash in on the sitcom's popularity following the success of Sex and the City, which was turned from a TV series into a big-screen film earlier this year (08).
A source says, "Jennifer, Courteney and the rest of the cast are keen to reprise their roles, under the right circumstances.
"The box office success of Sex and the City has really got their wheels spinning about how a Friends film could be just as big, if done right.
"Jennifer says she and Courteney have already talked this summer about what they want out of a Friends movie."
The news comes just one month after it was revealed Cox's controversial TV drama Dirt was cancelled by network bosses at FX after just two seasons.
Sex and the City: The Movie, which stars Sarah Jessica Parker and Kim Cattrall, has grossed more than $300 million (GBP150 million) to date worldwide since its release in May (08).
