Arrested Development: The Movie?

By: Celebuzz / November 12, 2008

Mollygood.com reports that plans are underway for cult favorite sitcom Arrested Development to be made into a movie. Rumors have been flying for awhile.

The Emmy and Golden Globe-winning Fox series portrayed the eccentric adventures of the previously wealthy Bluth family. The show was cancelled before its time in February 2006.

Arrested Development star Jeffrey Tambor (he played twin Bluth brothers) states that he has spoken with the show’s creator, Mitch Hurwitz, and “the movie is a go!”

No word on when, where, what or who but “when the writer/director calls you, it’s a pretty good sign,” Tambor said.

This might come as news to Michael Cera. The young breakout star of Arrested Development (he played cousinly incest-minded George Michael Bluth) has gone on to sardonic, befuddled movie stardom in hits such as Superbad, Juno and Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist.

“I don’t think I would want to see a movie of the series if I was a fan,” Cera has said.

Looks like someone’s up for a pay increase to reprise a role.
