[Movies] HBO To Make Bored To Death Film
Posted by Joseph Lee on 01.22.2013

HBO is planning a feature-length film based on Bored to Death, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The series ran for three seasons from 2009 and 2011 and followed a writer/amateur private eye played by Jason Schwartzman. it was created and written by author Jonathan Ames, which was also the name of Schwartzman's character. It also starred Zach Galifianakis as Joanathan's friend Ray and Ted Danson as George, his former editor who is a stoner. Both would return for the film.

The film's logline reads: "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."

Ames will write and executive produce the film. Sarah Condon and Stephanie Davis, who worked on the show, will executive produce.

Danson first mentioned the project in June at the GQ Gentleman's Ball in October. The script at that time had Jonathan become a police officer and Ray and George become roommates. Schwartzman, who is friends with Ames, said that he would love to make the film. When asked about his characters trenchcoat, he said: "I hope it still fits." The two are also working on another writing project together.

The show had good ratings early in its run (over one million viewers on Sunday nights in its second season) but then had trouble in its third season with a premiere of just 240,000 viewers when it moved to Monday nights in October 2011.
