Friends star Jennifer Aniston is reportedly in ''deep talks'' to help turn the popular American television sitcom into a musical on Broadway.

Speaking to RadarOnline.com, a source said: ''Jen has completely fallen in love with the idea of a Broadway-ready Friends musical.

''It's even gotten to the point where she's had some deep talks with her friend Sheryl Crow about creating '90s style music for the project, which of course would feature an entirely new crop of actors playing young versions of the now 40-something Friends stars.''

The insider added: ''Jen has told friends that Glee singing powerhouse Lea Michele would make the perfect Rachel in this project, and it simply becomes a matter of convincing Jen's good friend, Warner Bros. executive Peter Roth, of the viability of the idea.

''The show's creators can actually be bypassed if Jen can get the studio on-board.

''Jen thinks the whole idea is hilarious and too fun to pass up, and she also jokingly refers to it as her 'billion dollar idea.' ''

Aniston previously denied reports that her co-stars Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, David Schwimmer, Matt LeBlanc and Matthew Perry, were thinking about starring in a Friends movie.

She said: ''I can't imagine how you would do it. It's not normal. 'Friends' is in your living room; 'Friends' is not in a movie theatre. It doesn't make sense to me. I think it would be going against its authentic self.''
