Arrested Development Movie Officially In the Works

Arrested Development Movie: It Really Might Happen


Bluth family reunion! It's been rumored before, but now there's some news that makes the Arrested Development movie seem a bit more likely. What are the odds?

Actually, the odds may be quite good: Jason Bateman told E! that talks are officially in the works to bring the Bluths back together on the big screen. Bateman and Jeffrey Tambor both said they've gotten calls asking if they'd be up for a movie (answer: yes), and other ex-Bluths are reportedly doing the same.

Creator Mitchell Hurwitz doesn't have a script yet, but according to E!, he does have "a good, solid understanding of what he'd like to do for the movie" and a studio (Universal) that would be interested in making it happen. Actually putting the film together would happen sometime after the end of the writers' strike, so there's another reason to plead for a resolution.

What say you? Best news you've heard all day, or best news you've heard all year?

"Hey Brotherrrr." Oh man, this would be so awesome! That show was way too short-lived and I would love to see things come together in a movie. It'll definitely get more publicity too now that Michael Cera has become quite a name in the business lately.

This is the best news ever! Arrested Development is my favorite show of all time and is the only series I own on DVD. Cancelling this show in the first place was the biggest mistake any network ever made. It was the funniest, wittiest, most intelligent sitcom ever.
