TV shows turned movies are tough subjects, because most never see the light of day. Arrested Development is finally shooting its fourth season, with a film to follow sometime down the road, which is a miracle if you ask me. There’s always so much talking about making the project, but that talk rarely translates to action.
Party Down was one of those highly popular shows that got cancelled quickly and a movie has been in the works for a while now. The hardest thing about these transitions are the stars, because every single one of them has gone on to do something bigger (and not always better).
Adam Scott, Lizzy Caplan, Martin Starr, Ken Marino and the rest of the bunch are still all on board for returning, but it looks like 2013 is looking to be the new start date. The financing is taken care of, but they still need an approved script, plus aligning a schedule that works for all of the cast and crew might be tricky.
I hope Party Down: The Movie really happens, because I’m not having fun yet!
