Movie Update: "Party Down's" Megan Mullally Says They're Still Trying To Get Movie Going

Is a "Party Down" Movie in the Works?
Jun 28, 2011
by Kate Stanhope



Time to break out the pink bowties!

Starz's short-lived cult comedy series "Party Down" may be getting resurrected as a big-screen movie, according to co-creator and executive producer Rob Thomas.

Thomas broke the news during a special "Party Down" reunion held this past weekend at the Alamo Drafthouse in Texas.




"People are talking to us about doing a 'Party Down' movie. We are pretty far down the deal-making process with that, so we're hopeful that there will be a "Party Down' movie.

Ideally if it works out we'll be shooting during television hiatus time next spring. So hopefully that deal will close and we'll all tweet about it when it does.
"







"Party Down", starring Adam Scott, Lizzy Caplan, Jane Lynch and Megan Mullally, followed a group of young Hollywood hopefuls trying to make ends meet by working as caterers.

The show aired from March 2009 to June 2010 on Starz before it was canceled due to poor ratings.



Since the show's cancellation, Scott has joined the cast of "Parks and Recreation", and Lynch who left after Season 1 to work on "Glee" is now an Emmy winner and will host this year's ceremony.

No word yet on who exactly from the cast would participate in the film.

Adam Scott: "Party Down" Movie Has a Production Company, Waiting for Starz
by Chris Harnick
posted Nov 15th 2011



Low-rated, cult-hit series gets canceled. Said series becomes more popular after cancellation.

Creators and cast fuel reunion movie rumors for months, years even.



Adam Scott, star of the dearly departed "Party Down", went on Marc Maron's WTF Podcast and spilled some beans on the status of the film.

"There's a company that is interested in it and they said they want to do it, it's just a matter of getting Starz to completely sign off on it," Scott said. "I think they're going to. They've been pretty cool about it."



Scott described the project as "a low budget little thing" that will reunite the Season 2 cast to "wrap up the story."

When asked if Jane Lynch, star of Season 1 of the Starz series, would return to the fictional catering company, Scott said he was unsure. Lynch left the series when 'Glee' was picked up.

"I don't know if Jane will do it, we'll certainly invite her, but I'm not sure," he said. "But definitely the Season 2 cast, which is all of us and Megan Mullally."



Starz wouldn't comment on Scott's statements.

"Party Down" Movie Is Happening: Megan Mullally Says Starz Show Becoming Film
1/8/12


Party time is on its way. Just don't expect a great feast.

Long rumored and teased, the big screen continuation of the cult hit Starz comedy "Party Down" is on its way, series star Megan Mullally confirmed on Sunday. Mullally revealed that John Enblom, the series' co-creator, is in the midst of writing the script.

The news is yet another juicy morsel for fans of the show, which ran for two seasons in 2009 and 2010. Starring Adam Scott as the aforementioned Pollard, a failed actor who is employed by the subpar Party Down catering service, the series also featured Lizzy Caplan, Martin Starr, Ryan Hansen, Ken Marino and Mullally as his miserable co-workers.

Jane Lynch appeared in season one; Mullally replaced her in season two.



"I think we're going to see Lydia's ex-husband -- Ed I think is his name --- who was really racist and a misogynist," Mullally said of her character Lydia's storyline in the work-in-progress script.

"Party Down" Movie: Adam Scott Hopeful They Won't 'Screw It Up'
3/7/12


Are we having fun yet? Actually, maybe!

While doing press for the upcoming indie dramedy Friends With Kids, Adam Scott revealed that the "Party Down" movie is still on track -- though when it will pull together is anyone's guess.

"Yeah, our fingers are crossed," Scott told The Huffington Post. "We're hoping sooner rather than later. But, you know -- you never know. Everybody is pretty busy now, which is really nice, because when we shot the show, no one was busy. But we're all just trying to get it together. It would be really fun. Everyone is totally in; everyone wants to do it."





That echoes statements Scott made back in December, telling Grantland that he was hoping the "Party Down" movie would shoot this summer. Of course, even if the big screen adaptation of the cult television series -- which ran for two, lowly-rated seasons on Starz -- gets off the ground, Scott understands there is potential for failure.

"That's the biggest risk -- that you screw it up and make a shi**y movie," he said when asked about managing fan expectations.

"Part of the reason the show worked is that there were no expectations and we were doing it completely in a vacuum. Even the second season, when the first season had aired, still no one knew what it was. We were just doing it because it was fun and we loved working with each other. Now that a lot of people know -- literally dozens of people know what it is -- there is going to be an expectation and we don't want to screw it up."





One way to guard against that? Keeping things in the "Party Down" family.

"I think the important thing is to not make it too big -- which I don't think would be a problem, because it's going to be a low budget thing anyway -- and not get an outside director to come in and spruce it up and stay with what we did and just make it exactly the way we made the show, and hopefully, it would keep it in a straight line."

"Party Down" Movie: Megan Mullally Says They're 'Trying To Get It Going'
08/13/2012


Just because the "Arrested Development" revival is in full-swing doesn't mean people have forgotten about the "Party Down" movie. Megan Mullally stopped by Scott Aukerman's "Comedy Bang Bang" podcast and provided an update on the flick starring the caterers from the Starz series.

The cast is ready, but there's more to it than that.

"We're shooting for next hiatus, which means next spring/summer," Mullally said of production. "It's still not 100 percent official though and I got in trouble the last time I talked about it. I'm going to talk about it again, I don't care. We're trying to get it going, it's a question of getting the script finished and approved and all of that."





When asked about financial backing, which had been a sticking point of the film becoming a reality, Mullally said she thinks the money is there as long as the script gets approved.

"I think there's going to be some kind of mayhem if it doesn't for some reason happen because the cast is very gung-ho about it and I know the fans are too," she said. "So fingies crossed."
