(Newser) – Inspired by Sex and the City's wild silver-screen success, all six cast members—including holdout Jennifer Aniston—are on board to reunite for the big-screen adaptation of the hit sitcom “Friends,” the Daily Mail reports. Produced by Warner Brothers, Friends: The Movie would get under way within the next 18 months, said an insider.

"What's held back a Friends movie so far is that people were worried that Jennifer had simply become too famous to play Rachel again,” added the source. “Jennifer is finally willing to do it…It really comes down to money, and I don't think Jen has a problem with all of the Friends getting huge paydays for the movie."
