Jennifer Aniston - Jennifer Aniston bringing 'Friends' to Broadway?

Jennifer Aniston wants to bring 'Friends' to Broadway.

The 45-year-old actress is reportedly in ''deep talks'' to help turn the sitcom, which ran from 1994 until 2004, into a ''billion dollar'' musical, starring Lea Michele, and wants her friend Sheryl Crow to oversee the project.

A source told gossip website RadarOnline.com: ''Jen has completely fallen in love with the idea of a Broadway-ready 'Friends' musical.

''It's even gotten to the point where she's had some deep talks with her friend Sheryl Crow about creating '90s style music for the project, which of course would feature an entirely new crop of actors playing young versions of the now 40-something 'Friends' stars.''

The insider added: ''Jen has told friends that 'Glee' singing powerhouse Lea Michele would make the perfect Rachel in this project, and it simply becomes a matter of convincing Jen's good friend, Warner Bros. executive Peter Roth, of the viability of the idea.

''The show's creators can actually be bypassed if Jen can get the studio on-board.

''Jen thinks the whole idea is hilarious and too fun to pass up, and she also jokingly refers to it as her 'billion dollar idea.' ''

Jennifer previously poured cold water on rumours she and her former cast mates, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, David Schwimmer, Matt LeBlanc and Matthew Perry, were thinking about starring in a 'Friends' film.

She said: ''I can't imagine how you would do it. It's not normal. 'Friends' is in your living room; 'Friends' is not in a movie theatre. It doesn't make sense to me. I think it would be going against its authentic self.''
