A "Friends" movie in the works?

A "Friends" movie in the works?

Let the rumous begin. With "Friends" winding down on TV, the net is a buzz that a "Friends : The Movie" is in the works. According to IMDB all six major cast members will return, and the film will have a raunchier adult slant. Apparently the idea of a film is what enticed the cast to do another season of the TV series. So what’s all this raunchy stuff we can expect then?

The film antics of the New York buddies will be far more risque than the televised shows and could include sex and nudity. A studio source says, "Without those pesky American television network censors, it will be much more adult and will even include nudity." Reports suggest that hunky air head Joey Tribbiani played by Matt LeBlanc will be the one to disrobe first. The source says, "Matt has a huge female following, not to mention gay men. They will likely flock to the movie to see him bare all." Actors Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry and David Schwimmer were already willing to extend the show’s award winning run but both Courteney Cox and Jennifer Aniston had misgivings due to their outside success in Hollywood. A source says, "They all agreed to do one more year after the movie deal was struck. They all want to be movie stars – that’s why they caved in." However, the tenth season will run slightly shorter than its predecessors with only 18 episodes compared to the usual 22. All cast members will be paid $930,000 per episode and will net a percentage of the film’s profits. The source continues, "They’re being paid $9 million each for the film, plus a percentage of the profits and since it will likely be a major hit, they stand to walk away with a fortune."
