Like the cast members of “Arrested Development,” anyone and everyone that’s ever been associated with the short-lived cult comedy series “Party Down” inevitably find themselves fielding the same question: when’s the movie coming out?
Of course, a “Party Down” movie isn’t guaranteed, but cast members Lizzy Caplan and Megan Mullally both told MTV News at the Sundance Film Festival that progress has been made on bringing the canceled series to the big screen.
“I think they’re almost done with the script,” said Caplan. “And I have no doubt that it’ll be fairly close to flawless. We’ll just move forward very quickly and hopefully be able to shoot something this year.”
Mullally was a bit more cautious in her assessment of the “Party Down” film, largely due to recent comments she made that got her in hot water.
“I got in trouble for saying it was definitely happening,” she said. “So now I’m supposed to say it’s looking good.”
As for what the movie might center on, Mullally heard one particular idea that should raise fans’ interest.
“Originally I know that Lizzy wanted one of the events that we catered to be Ken Marino’s character’s funeral,” she laughed. “I don’t know if that’s really going to happen or not, but sorry Ron Donald. It’s been real!”
Mullally’s husband and “Parks & Rec” star Nick Offerman has apparently heard a thing or two about the “Party Down” movie as well.
“I do know there’s going to be a lot of f—ing in the movie,” he deadpanned.
“It’s going to be an X-rated movie with live-action, very hardcore sex scenes,” Mullally agreed.
