What is with series creators trying to break fan’s hearts? I mean, there was a point when a statement like this would make me super excited. A point when I believed the creator of a cancelled TV show truly believed he could make a movie. But after the Arrested Development scuttlebutt, I’m just not sure anymore. And as much as I want to get excited about this, there’s a mental blocker in the back of my mind whispering to me “Don’t get excited, pal; it ain’t gonna happen.”
This weekend at the Alamo Drafthouse in Austin, a fan asked about a potential Season 3 of the show, which was canceled last year. Of course, the cast said that there would be know Season 3, but creator Rob Thomas did comment on a possible movie based on the show:
There’s a video for ya, if you’re like me and are to lazy to read. TheMoviePool.com: Helping the Lazy and Illiterate Fufill There Common Goals. You’re welcome, guys.
But in all seriousness, a Party Down movie is probably closer to happening than Arrested Development or Veronica Mars movie is. I mean, the show is co-created by Paul Rudd. That has to mean something, right?
But even if this movie never happens, every single one of you reading this should see Party Down. It’s an amazing show about life in Hollywood, and one I think everybody reading TMP right now would enjoy. And if this movie ever does happen, it will at least mean you’re all caught up. Then again, if it doesn’t happen, that will make it’s cancellation all the more frustrating. But believe me, no matter what happens, its totally worth it.
