Mitchell Hurwitz

Since its cancellation in 2006, fans of the extremely cult-hit Arrested Development have been clamoring for a film continuation to their beloved series. In the years since, the project has been off and on more times than Edward and Bella’s wedding plans, but today series creator Mitch Hurwitz, along with the rest of the cast at The New Yorker Festival dropped some news that should send all fans into a tail spin. If the announcement is to believed, it has been confirmed that the series is set to return for a 9-10 episode mini-series that would lead directly into a motion picture. The mini-series would serve the purpose of explaining what all the various lead characters have been doing for the last five years and each episode would focus on a single character. In addition to this, Deadline was able to obtain information that Showtime and Netflix were in talks with 20th Century Fox Television (who owns the property) to broadcast the mini-series which is supposedly set for an early 2013 air date. Got all that? Good, because here’s the hitch…


David Cross in Arrested Development

It pains me to report such news, but if actor and comedian David Cross is to be believed — and we have no reason not to believe him at this point — the Arrested Development movie is dead in the water.



I am so over all of this Arrested Development movie news. Don’t get me wrong, I am as big a fan of the show as there is anywhere, but all of this back and forth speculation is becoming tired. Because lets face it, of course Michael Cera is going to do this movie.



The Arrested Development movie may just be coming together, as Ron Howard and Mitchell Hurwitz are close to signing a deal with Fox Searchlight. Not excited? Come on!


Arrested Development

Over the past week or so buzz has continued to swell over the much talked about, but still unconfirmed Arrested Development movie. Jeffrey Tambor says its on and Ron Howard says he’s “hopeful.”
