INTERVIEW: Gail Simone Guides 'Blockbuster Update' of Red Sonja, Vampirella and Dejah Thoris
Starz scored a cult hit when it gave Party Down a go back in 2009. The series, which centered on a group of mostly aspiring actors and writers working their days jobs as caterers for Hollywood parties, starred Adam Scott (Parks and Recreation), Jane Lynch (Glee), Ken Marino (The State), Ryan Hansen (Veronica Mars), Martin Starr (Freaks & Geeks), Lizzy Caplan (Mean Girls) and later Megan Mullalley (Will & Grace).
The show was canceled last year after 20 episodes, but word of a film has been circulating ever since. Grantland caught up with Scott on the set of NBC’s Parks and Recreation, where the actor said, “We have a treatment and if everyone’s schedules work out, we’ll shoot it over the summer.” This jibes with what Scott said in an interview last month on the WTF Podcast. Production is just waiting on Starz to greenlight everything and the cast members to work out the schedule.
