Update On Friends Movie Rumours

Tuesday, Sep 29, 2009

Nothing’s been heard since James Michael Tyler “confirmed” rumours for the Friends movie. However,whilst checking Courteney’s wikipedia page. The friends movie is listed under her projects for a 2011 release. When reading up about it,it says the following. So it seems like,once again this is just a silly rumour.

Following the series finale, rumors began to emerge of a Friends film, although all were proven to be untrue.Rumors of a film reemerged after the release of the Sex and the City film in 2008, which proved to be a success at the box office. The Daily Telegraph reported in July 2008 that the main cast members had agreed to star in the project, and that filming was going to start within the next 18 months. A source commented that “Jennifer, Courteney and the rest of the cast are [eager] to reprise their roles, under the right circumstances/Jennifer says she and Courteney have already talked this summer about what they want out of a Friends movie.”When asked about the film, Kudrow said that she was unaware of the talks, but expressed interest in the idea.However, the director of publicity for Warner Bros. said there was “no truth in the story”,and Perry’s spokeswoman added that “nothing is happening in this regard, so the rumor is false.” On September 27, 2009, the Sunday tabloid The Mail on Sunday quoted Gunther actor James Michael Tyler as saying a movie version is “definitely on”, and repeated claims by the tabloid News of the World from an unnamed “movie source” that the creators were involved with the film. Representatives for Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox Arquette, and Lisa Kudrow dismissed the claims as “speculation”.
