Martin Starr on Save The Date, Party Down movie & Lizzy Caplan

Martin talks about Lizzy in this interview with Movie Online about Save The Date & Party Down movie:

What was the dynamic like on set, working with Lizzy Caplan again and also Alison Brie, who’s another cult TV hero to many?
I don’t know about any of their cult statuses, but I knew everyone except Alison. I’d worked with Mark before and Geoffrey – I don’t know if we’d worked together before, I don’t think we had, but we were friends before for a long time. And Lizzy and I obviously have known each other for a long time. We actually went to second grade together. It was just like hanging out with family. Alison and I quickly got to know each other, and got along great. She became a cult classic in my life!

I don’t know why I said such a corny line like that, but it’ll happen from time to time, so get used to it.

Can you tell me anything about the Party Down movie?
There is nothing official. I know that things have gone out that make it seem like it’s official, but there’s nothing official. We all have our fingers crossed and hope that everything works out and that we can get it made. There are small steps being taken that hopefully will lead to people signing contracts and us getting to do something, but at the moment I’m not capable of saying that it’s happening yet.

Have you heard if anybody’s working on a script?
I have heard of the possibility of financiers, but then I don’t know to what degree things are moving forward, or if things are moving forward, but I know that there are talks. Hopefully those talks lead to us getting to make an amazing movie that all seven of us fans can watch. I’m joking; I hope there’s more than seven people out there that like Party Down.

There definitely are. With this movie, and Lizzy’s other Sundance movie with Adam Scott (Bachelorette), there’s a lot of excitement. Any time Party Down people get together, it becomes A Thing.
I hope so. I actually am writing – I don’t know if I should talk about this, but I’ve already started this sentence – I have sold an idea to a little company called ABC (I’m With Stupid), and that idea consists of Ryan Hansen and myself playing friends on it. I’m in the process of writing the script with Justin Adler, and if things go well and ABC likes it, we may actually get to move forward in the process. But nothing could come of it as well.

I hear you’re on your way to a table read. What’s it for?
Yeah, I have to go to a table read for The New Girl. Lizzy actually went and did a few episodes. Jake Johnson is a good buddy of mine, and I’ve known Zooey for a little while, I guess. And I know Liz and Jake Kasden – he directed the pilot of Freaks and Geeks. I’ve got history over there.

TCA: Megan Mullally Confirms ‘Party Down’ Movie Shooting in 2012

YAY! Lizzy’s co star, Megan Mullally, confirmed Party Down Movie today at TCA. Cannot wait!

After being canceled in 2010 and having hints of a film continuation dropped by series star Adam Scott, Megan Mullally confirmed the project was moving forward while addressing reporters at the Television Critics Association winter press tour.

“I will be doing the Party Down movie,” she said. “John [Enbom] is writing it right now.”

After the panel, where Mullally appeared alongside other actors and showrunners from Fox’s Wednesday comedy block, the newly minted Breaking In star relayed more details about the movie to a scrum of reporters.

The entire cast is coming back, with the possible exception of Jane Lynch, who she was not sure about. And she believes the story will pick up just where the second season finale left off.

Prior to Enbon fully fleshing out the script, Mullally says he turned in an outline that was “enthusiastically approved” by investors.

“I think we’re going to see Lydia’s ex-husband — Ed i think is name — who was really racist and a misogynist,” Mullally said of her character’s possible story in the film outing.

Party Down followed a hapless group of Los Angeles caterer-waiters and ran for 2 seasons and 20 episodes. It was created by Enbom, Veronica Mars scribe Rob Thomas, Dan Etheridge and Paul Rudd.

Mullally says filming will take place in the late spring or early summer.

Bachelorette Sundance Schedule

If you are planning on attending Sundance, check out the synopsis and the schedule for Lizzy’s upcoming film, Bachelorette:

Regan is used to being first at everything. Imagine her horror and chagrin when she finds out the girl everyone called Pig Face in high school is going to tie the knot before she does! But Regan sucks it up and takes on bridesmaid duties along with her childhood pals: substance-abusing, promiscuous Gena and ditzy Katie. The single ladies are determined to put their bitterness aside and have an awesomely hedonistic bachelorette party. Armed with acerbic wit and seemingly endless supplies of coke and booze, the foul-mouthed femmes embark on one very long and emotional night filled with major wedding-dress panic, various bodily fluids, and cute ex-boyfriends.

Kirsten Dunst is consistently funny leading the talented cast, which includes the delightful scene stealer, Rebel Wilson, who plays Becky, a.k.a. Pig Face. Adding to the tradition of successful bridal comedies, this debut feature by writer/director Leslye Headland is a sassy and sometimes romantic ride that never forgets to celebrate the complexities of female friendship. – K.Y.
