“Executives at HBO Max including Roberto Alcantara and Mark Tuohy have made everyone sign water-tight confidentiality agreements which could see them be sued in excess of $5 million if they leak any details,” said the source.
News of the reboot movie was first reported in November when The Hollywood Reporter revealed cast and creators of the iconic ’90s show were “in talks” to reunite.
Jen somewhat cryptically said: “I will just continue with … we’re trying”, then added: “It’s a never ending question, isn’t it? What else could make a group of six actors feel more proud. It’s bringing people joy on a daily basis.”
According to the insider, the cast have no idea what’s in store for their characters and won’t be given their scripts until a week before filming even starts: “Even when they do receive the script, it will be given to them on custom-built iPads which keeps all files locked onto the tablet.”
While the original actors – Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Matthew Perry, David Schwimmer, Lisa Kudrow and Matt LeBlanc – are on board to star in the highly anticipated reboot, many other A-listers will also reprise their roles in the hugely popular sitcom.
“There have been lots of whispers that stars including George Clooney, Billy Crystal, Ben Stiller, Julia Roberts and Bruce Willis are all set to return,” says the insider. It’s also thought Brad Pitt will likely return, playing an old friend of Rachel and Monica’s.
