I recently spoke with “Party Down” co-creator about the rebirth of his cult-hit series “Veronica Mars” and couldn’t resist asking about the status of his other beloved and underrated series. Don’t expect the “Party Down” caterers to show up in the “VMars” movie, but there’s some progress being made.
"Well, we’re still hopeful that there will be a ‘Party Down’ movie without Kickstarter," Thomas said in a phone interview. "We’re already in the process of trying to make that happen and I can’t say too much about that. There is work being done on script right now for ‘Party Down.’"
A script! In August 2012, Megan Mullally was positive about the project.
"We’re shooting for next hiatus, which means next spring/summer," Mullally said of the movie in August 2012. “It’s still not 100 percent official though … We’re trying to get it going. It’s a question of getting the script finished and approved and all of that.”
Mullally said the movie isn’t 100 percent officially happening yet.
"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."
