Yesterday, The Hollywood Reporter, uh, Hollywood reported that the long-speculated-upon Bored to Death movie is really, truly happening. Alright! Good, maybe even great news for fans of detective stories and/or Jonathan Ames and/or any type of Brooklyn-related media. But what, precisely, will happen in this movie? Well, per the logline obtained by THR:
“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.”
Which, strange wording aside, sounds about right. And since Ames is set to write and executive produce alongside show veterans Sarah Condon and Stephanie Davis, it would seem there would be a good amount of continuity. Even so, a lot has changed around these parts since these beloved man-children last graced our screens! What kind of hijinks could they possibly get into now, in 2013 Brooklyn? I have a few (mostly) friendly suggestions.
