Is a 'Friends' Movie Actually Happening?

Though it's impossible to get a straight answer from Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, David Schwimmer, Matt LeBlanc or Matthew Perry, it would appear that at least one non-influential Friends cast member either wants to get his name in the news or knows a whole bunch about a potential Friends reunion on the big screen.

 
Inspired by the recent success of Sex and the City on the big screen, James Michael Tyler (who played Gunther on Friends) claims a film is very much in the works and that the cast is excited to be getting back together. The actor recently told News of the World the following: "Friends: The Movie is definitely on. I still keep in touch with a lot of the cast and they say that they are really keen. I am definitely on board to do the film. I really loved my time on the show and I am looking forward to meeting up with the old gang again. I just hope we can do justice to the show in a film."
 
Apparently the show's creators are preparing to write a script now, which we then imagine they will try to use to coerce the original cast to come back. Aside from Cox, Aniston and mayyybe Kudrow, I don't see why this cast wouldn't take a chance and reunite for a feature-length Friends movie. (Seriously, what else is Matt LeBlanc doing these days?). And, hey, I'd totally go to see it – I think it'd be interesting to watch Friends without the laugh track and in a longer format. If they do it right, we could have a pretty funny movie on our hands.
 
What do you think? Is Friends too "old" to revive as a big-screen movie?
