Adam Scott: 'Party Down' Movie Has a Production Company, Waiting for Starz

Party DownLow-rated, cult-hit series gets canceled. Said series becomes more popular after cancellation. Creators and cast fuel reunion movie rumors for months, years even. Sound familiar? It's been the case of 'Arrested Development' (canceled in 2006), 'Veronica Mars' (canceled in 2007) and 'Party Down' (canceled in 2010). However, it looks like the 'Party Down' movie could actually get made first.

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.

In June, 'Party Down' co-creator Rob Thomas told the audience at the Alamo Drafthouse 'Party Down' marathon that he was hopeful a movie version would become a reality.

"We're hopeful that there will be a 'Party Down' movie. Ideally, if it works out, we could be shooting in television hiatus time next spring," he said. "So hopefully that deal will close, and we'll all tweet about it when it does."

The cast, sans Scott and Lynch, recently reunited on an episode of Adult Swim's 'Children's Hospital.' Watch that clip below.
