HBO is moving forward with a feature-length Bored to Death movie that will reunite series stars Jason Schwartzman (Jonathan), Zach Galifianakis (Ray), and Ted Danson (George). Series creator Jonathan Ames is currently writing the screenplay. Here is the official plot description for the proposed movie.

"Jonathan, Ray, and George reunite to fight crime, commit crime, lose their minds and fail at love in a Bored to Death feature-length slapstick adventure."


HBO cancelled the series back in December 2011, after three seasons. Jason Schwartzman starred in the show as Jonathan Ames, a writer and amateur private detective who tried to solve crimes in Brooklyn, with the help of his friend Ray (Zach Galifianakis) and his editor George (Ted Danson).

Jonathan Ames will write the script and executive produce alongside Sarah Condon and Stephanie Davis. No production schedule was given.

    Didn't the TV series bore people to death? Why make a movie? I didn't see it but generally TV series turned into films don't work, apart from south park and (laugh but you know i'm right when i say) The Spongebob Squarepants movies live up to the series... but, haven't seen the arrested Development movie yet either.

    I didn't want to get my hopes up too high when I overheard this, but now I know that I can be happy that this is really going to happen! To celebrate, I'm going to have a Bored to Death marathon since I still have the first three seasons saved to the external hard drive that I used to have connected to my old DVR. I would be devastated if I lost these recordings, but fortunately, I can connect it to my new DISH Hopper DVR and revisit this show that was cancelled far too soon. I know of a few people I work with at DISH who would love to see why I was making such a fuss about this earlier today -lol!
