'Friday Night Lights': Connie Britton says movie is in 'baby stages'

connie-britton-fnl-movie.jpgIf and when a feature film based on the "Friday Night Lights" TV series comes to pass, Connie Britton will be there.

"I think we all love the idea so much about being able to do that," Britton said Saturday (Aug. 6) at the Television Critics Association press tour.

That said, any possible feature-film project is still a good ways down the road. "I've talked to Pete [Berg, who directed the 2004 "Friday Night Lights" movie and developed the series] and [showrunner] Jason Katims, and it really is in its very baby stages right now," Britton says.

"Listen -- I was just watching an interview with Jason Bateman," she continues, "who talked about the 'Arrested Development' movie they've been working on for [years], so I'll believe it when I see it. But it would be so fun to do. It would be so fun to do the second 'Friday Night Lights' movie."

In the meantime, Britton will star in "American Horror Story" on FX, which premieres Oct. 5.
