Fox Searchlight Reportedly Picks Up Arrested Development Movie!

If all the "sources" are correct, Arrested Development fans have something to celebrate today: The movie is a go!

Yup, I think I just blue myself.

The Hollywood Reporter is saying today that Mitch Hurwitz and Ron Howard are "reportedly closing deals for the long-gestating project from Imagine and Fox Searchlight."

E! Online's Watch With Kristin is going a step further to confirm that without a doubt, the "Arrested Development movie will happen." However! There is apparently some behind-the-scenes drama already, since "one of the show's original cast members has not signed on to the movie." Kristin continues, "The good news is that aside from this actor (who, sorry, cannot be named), I'm told that all of the other main cast members have committed to be a part of the big-screen project." That utterly sucks about the one "holdout," though maybe he or she will come around? Fingers (and hooks!) crossed!

Now, if you need me I'll be in the hospital bar, wearing my "slut" t-shirt.

C'mon George Michael! I love your nerdy awkwardness!

Whichever cast member is holding out, he/she is MAKING A HUGE MISTAKE!!!! It probably is Cera, although I must admit that my first thought was David Cross. But I think that's because my feelings for him have kind of turned sour once I heard he was going out with Amber Tamblyn. (Eww on that age difference.)

It is not a competition, Lindsay. We are doing this to save our marriage. But I should be telling you that I have been meeting more than my fair share of groupies. Or should I say "blue-pies"?

George Michael doesn't want to be in this film? Lame, I mean C'MON! haha this is one of my all time favorite shows, such a great cast, I don't understand how any one on the show would not want to be on it. Oh well, it's his decision but I hope he still does it. Hey, as long as there is Will Arnett (GOB'S MY MOST FAVORITE), Jason Bateman, and David Cross, I'm a happy girl

I hope if it is Michael Cera, he decides to do it. He doesn't strike me as the type to snub the show that opened such a HUGE door for him. Come one, Michael, be graceful and gracious and just freakin' do it!!!

UGH Michael Cera. My fav for a while, but he is RAPIDLY losing points.

well what we typically see is that actors that cross over from tv to movies don't want to relate back to what gave them their roots even though they should always be i hope that cera comes to his senses and realizes that there's a HUGE cult following of the show and that a movie would probably have the same draw.

HUZZAAAAAH!!! This week as been so tragic for the entertainment world, what with Dirty Sexy Money and Pushing Daisies being cancelled and Twilight being shoved down people's throats. But, with The Hollywood Reporter confirming what Jeffrey Tambor reported on the immanence of an AD flick, with promos going out for the Cupid remake, the Coraline adaptation and The Wrestler having their extended trailers posted online, it almost makes up for the loss of yet another wonderful Brian Fuller creation. Taste the happy!

I assumed it was Micheal Cera, too. But honestly he was never my favorite and the movie would still be awesome without him, so good riddance!

I wouldn't hate Michael for not doing it, assuming it's actually him, but please let every cast member be in it. And by the way, didn't Brian Fuller say a Pushing Daisies movie is likely too? I'd go see both.

No, no no! Michael Cera has to do it! It wouldn't be Arrested Development with GM! And, wait, Briggs? No more Pushing Daisies?! I've heard nothing about this travesty of an idea!

Whip, that was my first assumption, too, and I'm guessing it is Cera. I was hoping that when push came to shove, he'd just do it, but who knows.

The holdout is Michael Cera, no? He's been pretty public about not wanting to do the movie.
