According to Daily Mail, Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Matthew Perry, Matt LeBlanc, Lisa Kudrow, and David Schwimmer will reprise their roles from Friends on the big screen “within the next 18 months.”
Apparently, the actors have been inspired by the success of Sex and the City, which has grossed in excess of $300 million worldwide since its release.
A source said: ‘Jennifer, Courteney and the rest of the cast are keen to reprise their roles, under the right circumstances.
‘The box office success of Sex And The City has really got their wheels spinning about how a Friends film could be just as big, if done right.
‘Timing and the script are really important, but now that Courteney and Jen both have production companies, they can potentially get very involved in those decisions.’
Although the rest of the cast was believed to be interested in the reunion, Jennifer Aniston is believed to have been against it, but now she, too, is onboard.
The source added: ‘As the biggest star of the Friends franchise, Jennifer can’t help but look at what’s happened with Sarah Jessica Parker and the Sex And The City film and be a little jealous.
‘What’s held back a Friends movie so far is that people were worried that Jennifer had simply become too famous to play Rachel again.
‘But the truth is that Jennifer is finally willing to do it, and she’d love to work with that whole team of actors and producers again.
‘She says she and Courteney have already talked this summer about what they want out of a Friends movie, and if deals can be made with them, everything else can fall into place rather quickly.
‘It really comes down to money, and I don’t think Jen has a problem with all of the Friends getting huge paydays for the movie.
‘In that sense, it’s Sex And The City all over again. There’s no movie unless you can reunite the whole cast and keep them all happy financially.’
