Reports of a “Party Down” movie have been circulating for a long time now, with star Megan Mullally even confirming the feature-length project — a continuation of the cult comedy series that ran for two seasons on Starz — at the 2012 TCAs. But little progress has been made in the years since, and co-creator Rob Thomas told HitFix's own Alan Sepinwall back in March that the film was probably a long-shot: “There is no new news,” he said at the time, “and with each series regular of that show who makes it bigger, it becomes harder.”
Now you can add Adam Scott to the list of “Party Down” insiders who are downplaying the movie's chances of making it to the screen. As the actor told me at the “Krampus” press junket Tuesday, the film is indeed looking less and less likely as time wears on.
“I kind of doubt that'll ever happen,” said the actor, who played struggling thespian Henry Pollard on the fan-beloved series. “I mean, if anything were to ever happen, it would probably be some more episodes, but I don't know. I feel like it's been a little while. It would be super fun, but I also feel like maybe it's best to kind of leave it. Like, why screw something up? Or why take the risk of screwing something up?”
Not that he's opposed to the idea…
“On the other hand, if everybody else was into it, I would totally do it,” he added, “because it would be a blast.”
