Friends Cast Member Courteney Cox

Well it finally has happened. The cast of "Friends" is reuniting to bring the hit television show to the big screen, according to actor James Michael Tyler. The series came to an end in 2004 after 10 seasons, but the cast has been plagued by gossip of a possible big screen adaptation ever since it ended. David Schwimmer denied reports last year that the six core cast members, including himself, Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc and Matthew Perry, were planning on starring in a movie. He said then, "There's never been any talk of a Friends film, at least as far as I know." But Tyler, who played coffee shop worker Gunther in the show, has confirmed the actors are in negotiations to star in a film adaptation, set to hit the big screen in summer 2011. He tells Britain's News of the World newspaper, "Friends: The Movie is definitely on. I still keep in touch with a lot of the cast and they say that they are really keen. I am definitely on board to do the film. "I really loved my time on the show and I am looking forward to meeting up with the old gang again. I just hope we can do justice to the show in a film." The show's original creators, David Crane and Marta Kauffman, have reportedly been drafted in to write and produce the movie. A source tells the publication, "Everyone knew the story had to be right and well written. Getting the creators on board was a massive step forward for the project. The show did lose a lot of its shine in the last few seasons, but with the actors all in their forties it would be a real interest to see how their characters have developed."
