HBO Might Do a ‘Bored to Death’ Movie

+

HBO’s Bored to Death was much loved but only sort of watched; at least, not enough to stave off the much-hyped and eventually-successful Veep and Girls, which took the third-year noir comedy’s place on the cable channel’s lineup. But as a result of the abrupt cancellation, last season’s finale didn’t feel quite final, instead your typical denouement of existing plotlines with little consideration of the greater scheme. (Like whether Jonathan would ever find his way back to Suzanne, or at least stop sleeping with his half-sister.) There’s good news, though: at the Monte Carlo Television Festival, Ted Danson told an interviewer that HBO is considering doing a full-length Bored to Death film, one that could give the show a proper sendoff or just serve as a final, original, probably hilarious story before all we’re left with is our HBO Go accounts. Vulture reports from an HBO source that such talks are at a “very early stage,” but they’re at the very least talks, and not just the wishful thinking of a suddenly out-of-work actor. Maybe Jim Jarmusch could make another cameo?
