"Monday Night Football" Fires the Good One, Leaves the Boring One and the Blowhard

Speaking of football, however, Peter Berg has given an update on the Fright Night Lights movie that will almost certainly never happen. He says that the script is nearly finished, and right now it's all a matter of scheduling. The good news is that Jason Katims (who ran the TV show and now runs "Parenthood" wrote the script, which is said to parallel the predicament that Mike Leach faced at Texas Tech -- he was fired after he was wrongly accused of mistreating a player with a concussion. The schedules of Kyle Chandler and Connie Britton and the rest of the cast, however, are not syncing. Given the size of the ensemble and the various projects many are preoccupied with, it seems unlikely they will sync any time soon. (Slashfilm)
