It’s the one about the movie…
‘Seinfeld’ did it. ‘Sex and the City’ did it. ‘Entourage’ is thinking about doing it. So wouldn’t it be swell if there was a ‘Friends’ reunion too?
People can’t seem to let go of the never-ending ‘Friends‘ reunion talk, and now even Monica Geller is in on it.
This time it’s former ‘Friend’ Courteney Cox herself stoking the flames with recent comments about the possibility of a ‘Friends’ reunion movie for the big screen.
“We’ve got a good idea. There is a good way to get us all together,” Cox told Fox News last Tuesday at the Women in Film at 2010’s Crystal + Lucy Awards. “Jennifer (Aniston) told me, or someone told her, or she came up with the idea herself. I don’t think it will ever happen, but it would be a great way to get us all together!”
So has the film success of the ‘SATC’ franchise inspired any friendly film talks among the gang?
“I wish we could do that with ‘Friends,’” Cox says in a new interview with Los Angeles Times. “The thing is, the characters from ‘Sex and the City’ hopped all over Manhattan. On ‘Friends,’ we were always stuck in the apartment and that coffeehouse.”
Before anyone gets carried away… “I don’t think it’s going to happen,” Cox insists. “Would [series creators David Crane and Marta Kauffman] want to write it? Because they’d have to be involved. I don’t know … a lot of things would have to break just right for it to work. But we’ve daydreamed about it.”
There are several other logistical issues to consider as well, such as actually getting all six of the ‘Friends’ back in the coffee shop.
Ross, at least, considers them all on a permanent break! David Schwimmer has said he would “never” do a ‘Friends’ reunion. “It was ten years ago – and it’s time to move on,” the actor said back in 2007. However, he’s currently the only Friend without an acting job at the moment, so he may be more flexible on the issue these days.
Cox is having success living it up in ‘Cougar Town,’ where former costar Lisa Kudrow even dropped by for a guest stint. Kudrow is also involved in the online series she created and stars in, ‘Web Therapy.’
Matt LeBlanc, who’s been MIA from TV screens since ‘Joey’ got canned in 2006, is making a comeback this summer with the Showtime comedy, ‘Episodes,’ which is a spoof about … Matt LeBlanc.
Matthew Perry, meanwhile, will be bringing ‘Mr. Sunshine’ to ABC’s midseason schedule this fall.
And Jennifer Aniston, the rom-com queen, is loaded with new film projects–according to IMDB, she has four movies in pre-production and as many as eight movies in development.
I hear Gunther’s totally available though.
