"Working on" doesn't necessarily equate to "writing," unfortunately. We met up with Michael Cera, George-Michael Bluth himself, while he was promoting his new film "Youth in Revolt," and of course we couldn't resist begging for any news on the film.
"I don't have any updates, no," Cera told us. "They haven't written it yet. They're working on outlining it right now."
So at least some sort of progress is being made. No new uses of "I've made a huge mistake" have been put on paper, but progress, any progress at all, is a good thing. Cera said the film is on the backburner while Hurwitz is working on a new project, but echoed the hopeful statements made by Jason Bateman earlier this year, that the project could be underway soon.
"I think hopefully it will happen next year," he said.
Cera was reportedly the odd man out when it came to "Arrested Development" stars signing onto the film, so we asked him if he kept in touch with his fellow costars outside of work.
"I mean, you know, I try to see them whenever I can, but everyone's doing their own thing," he admitted.
He did say that he spent Halloween with Alia Shawkat and "Juno" costar Ellen Page (both of whom starred in Drew Barrymore's "Whip It!" together). What did he go as?
"I went as a sexy rapist," Cera replied without blinking. At least he's still got his dry sense of humor.
