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.
