Well. Here we go. A few weeks ago I wrote against studios using things like Kickstarter to help fund movies (a la “Veronica Mars”). But now that’s going to be put to the test for me. I’ve made it no secret here that “Friday Night Lights” is my favorite television show of all time. Now producers Brian Grazer and Ron Howard are looking to crowd fund the film partially to bring the series to the big screen. The TV series starred Kyle Chandler, Connie Britton, Aimee Teegarden, Taylor Kitsch and a lot more. I’m still not sure I like the idea of having fans fund a movie then be asked to pay to see the movie afterwards and support it financially. But I must say, I would be excited to see FNL with Eric Taylor come back.
