Late at night, when I close my eyes I can still hear the sobbing of thousands of comedy nerds over the cancellation of HBO’s critically acclaimed series Bored To Death. Last night, however, the wailing stopped, if but for a moment. I became curious as to why. The reason, I learned, is that there apparently have been vague discussions over at the cable network giant about a possible screen adaptation of Jonathan Ames’ quirky comedy starring Zach Galifianakis, Ted Danson and Jason Schwartzman.
The fine folks at Vulture reported that an HBO rep told them that there have “been some conversations” movie, but “it’s at a very early stage.”
The buzz began when Danson, while at the Monte Carlo Film Festival, told French reporter Pierre Langlas that there was a good chance Bored To Death would make its way to the Silver Screen. Obviously, the chances of it actually happening is far off at this point. But we can hope, can’t we?
