Is Will Arnett Holding up the Arrested Development Movie with his Illusions?

Production on the Arrested Development movie is living up to the movie's name a little too well, and even though Michael Cera was long thought to be the reason, now it appears that Will "GOB" Arnett is the one causing the delay. Although AD creator Mitch Hurwitz was supposed to be working on the film's script this summer, Arnett told the New York Daily News that he and Hurwitz have been a little distracted.

"The Arrested Development movie is definitely going to happen," Arnett said on Saturday. "But Mitch and I have been working on the new show, so unfortunately for the movie, we have been focusing on that for the last couple of months."

The new show, Arnett said, is about a rich and powerful man who realizes he doesn't actually have much to contribute to the world.

"And no, I'm not drawing on my personal life for this one," he quipped.

Still, Arnett assured the Daily News, there is some progress on the Arrested Development movie.
"We're definitely not starting from page one," he said. "There are scripts in order."
You'd better not be lying to us, Will Arnett, because you would be making a huge mistake.

My Kind of Protester

Report Casts Doubt on Arrested Development Movie


In Januuary, Will Arnett said: "For once and for all, the Arrested Development movie is happening!"

But is it, really?

Considering the amount of time that has passed since the Fox sitcom was on the air, as well as the other projects creator Mitch Hurwitz is developing, an insider told Zap2It that he doubts the project will ever get off the ground.

"I don't think Mitch is gonna do it," the source said. "It seems like he's moving off the idea. So much time has passed."

Comic-Con 2009: Jason Bateman Talks Arrested Development Movie

Normally at these Comic-Con panels, the stars don’t generally go into great detail about other future projects. It seems like that is left for the actual press conferences, as opposed to panels. However, that is not the case with Jason Bateman. During the Extract panel, he discussed the progress of the Arrested Development movie.

Bateman stated:

“I am more excited than all of you to see that thing happen. I don’t have any
breaking news to share with you today. It’s not dead, there’s no reason to think
its dead, it’s still going ahead. I wouldn’t be surprised if [Neal Moritz]
called me today and said he had the first 50 pages done or the whole thing is
done. I spoke to Ron Howard and Brian Grazer the other day and they are looking
forward to doing it. Hopefully it could start filming as early as the next six
months or as late as the next 18. "

I was really excited to hear a more detailed discussion of a possible Arrested Development movie. I loved the show and everyone involved. They need to hurry up and make it already! It has been years since we have seen any material by them.
