The six stars of TV sensation Friends are in negotiations to stage a comeback in a major Hollywood film that could net them $19 million (GBP10 million) each.

Movie bosses are hoping David Schwimmer, Jennifer Aniston, Matthew Perry, MATT LeBLANC, Courteney Cox and Lisa Kudrow will agree to reprise their roles from the smash sitcom, which ran for 10 years before finishing in 2004.

An insider says, "Although the cast have gone their different ways, none of them has quite repeated the success they had with Friends.

"And while Friends may be over as a television entity there are many who have believed for some time that people had not quite had enough of them just yet.

"David Schwimmer and Jennifer Aniston are the first to make positive noises regarding the film and it is thought once they are on board the others will follow suit."
