Not sure how they will be able to pull the movie off. If it's going to be in the theaters they can't really use all the running jokes that made the series great.

Use Ben Stiller's Tony Wonder as the main antagonist and sell it as a Ben Stiller movie to the mass audience. (they'd probably get back Charlize Theron to kick up the star quotient a bit too).

Doubt it'll get made, cash problems, probably.

I still don't understand why this TV show wasn't more successful..

Shitty advertising plus it was built too much on running jokes. When it was on TV I remember watching it once or twice and not really caring that much since it was built on running jokes. When I bought the dvd's and watched it from start to finish I realized how great of a show it was. The running jokes both made it great and inaccessible to new viewers, which is the reason why it will fail as a movie.

it was built too much on running jokes. running jokes were what it was built on. it wont work as a movie because it is built on running jokes and they cant have a movie built on running jokes. if they try to build a movie on running jokes, it wont be successful because the reason the show was funny was because it was built on running jokes and a movie built on running jokes wont work, just like how the show wasn't successful because it was built on running jokes. built on running jokes. jokes run building on. building on running while joking.

"Arrested Development" creator and exec producer Mitch Hurwitz is close to a deal with Imagine and Fox Searchlight to write and direct a feature adaptation of the offbeat, Emmy-winning laffer that aired on Fox from 2003-2006.

The show, which remains a cult fave among its die-hard fans, hailed from Imagine Entertainment and 20th Century Fox TV. Imagine principal Ron Howard served as the show's voice-over narrator and is expected to be involved in the feature in some behind-the-scenes capacity.

Hurwitz at present is also exec producing an animated series set to bow on Fox next year, "Sit Down, Shut Up," from Sony Pictures TV.

Hurwitz's reps declined comment.

Arrested Development: Introducing the Handy New 'Arrested Development' Film Tracker! (http://defamer.com/5094781/introducing-the-handy-new-arrested-development-film-tracker?skyline=true&s=i)

http://cache.gawker.com/assets/images/defamer/2008/11/arrested.jpg

we offer you the brand-new Arrested Development Film Tracker™, which will bring you up-to-the minute cast confirmations, disavowals, and cagey statements of, "I don't understand the question, and I won't respond to it." Today, we have a brand-new development straight from the mouth from one of Arrested's key players. To the banana stand!

Inaugurating the AD Film Tracker is Ron Howard, who said this during his junket duties for Frost/Nixon:

“I think it’s looking very promising,” said Howard. “We’re still just lacking that one thing we need: a script.” He also confirmed that Mitchell Hurwitz, who created the Emmy-winning series, would direct the movie.

That adds both Howard and Hurwitz to the "yea" column already populated by Jeffrey Tambor, Jason Bateman, and David Cross, leaving only Michael Cera as the film's lone holdout thus far. Superbad, it's time to get with the program. We don't want to do this, but we can always replace you with Annyong.

Arrested Development: More Non-Cera Stars Continue to Align for the 'Arrested Development' Movie (http://defamer.com/5113687/more-non+cera-stars-continue-to-align-for-the-arrested-development-movie)
http://cache.gawker.com/assets/images/defamer/2008/12/arrested.jpg

Though Michael Cera has voiced skepticism about the Arrested Development movie, at least there are still some more original cast members willing to board the stair car.

The latest is Tony Hale, who played Buster. Delicious! Here's what he had to say to Paste (not as delicious) about the subject:

"Pretty much, we’re all willing to do it," he says. "I think it’s a matter of everybody’s schedule just being crazy. After the show, everybody did their own thing. We all had babies. So it’s just tough to pull everybody’s schedule together. And it’s also a matter of the budget and what they can do it for. I’d love for it to happen because I’d love to get together with everybody and just play and have a great time. There are a lot of other factors involved, but it seems like everybody’s excited about it."

That leaves Will Arnett, Portia DeRossi and Alia Shawkat left to confirm, and gives Cera a month to revise his opinion before he begins his Sundance press tour. Careful there, Superbad... we have a feeling that if you stick to your guns, there may be a one-armed man waiting in Park City to teach you a lesson.

I still don't understand why this TV show wasn't more successful..

I kind of felt like it was too serialized. While I liked it, I didn't like the feeling I got when I watched it that I had to watch it every week in order to enjoy it. I don't really like shows like that, and while america seems to like dramas like that (Lost, Heroes; both of which i loathe) I don't think it really likes comedies like that.

I remember Donal Logue going on about how that Knights of Prosperity show that tanked was going to be the "first serialized comedy" I guess he never saw AD.

I'd probably love this series on DVD though.

the best thing about this is you know for any original cast members who aren't in it, they'll write some ingenious in-joke explanation into the plot about why the character hasn't returned.

"Michael Cera hasn't done much talking on the Arrested Development movie since he notoriously said he "doesn't see a need for it." That's fine, though: onscreen dad Jason Bateman is happy to talk for him.

Despite the fact that nearly every cast member has signed on (though we're still waiting for Portia De Rossi to finish restocking Ellen's green room with votive candles so she can issue an official announcement) and creator Mitchell Hurwitz says he can't proceed in writing a script until he knows whether Cera will commit, the actor has remained indecisive, Bateman said at TCA.

"I think you really have to get him on the phone to get his answer about whether he's going to come back and do it or not. I know he's thinking about it, and we're all awaiting some finality to that."

"I do feel bad that people are a little misinformed about what's going on with him," Bateman said. "He's certainly not said that he won't do it. I think he's, you know, Michael is clearly the guy that has come out of 'Arrested Development' with a very, very big plate. And so I think he's trying to really give some responsible thought to what makes sense for him to do with his career.

"The guy's 20 years old and I'm sure he doesn't want to screw up this opportunity, and trying to figure out whether an 'Arrested Development' film would be right for him and his future, I think, again, he's just trying to give responsible time to that decision. And he may or may not have come to a decision. I really can't speak to that."

If Cera hasn't come to a decision, he might be forced to after a rabid Sundance press pack accosts him over the next week. There have been many times in history when a fine, upstanding Bluth was pressed into service because the members of his family demanded it; Michael, we ask you, what's one more? "

I haven’t been covering Michael-Cera-is-the-lone-holdout-for-the-Arrested-Development-movie gate much here, probably because I prefer stories that are interesting and/or factual. Nonetheless, MTV recently caught up with Cera at Sundance and finally had a chance to ask him about it. Cera says nothing is written at this point and that the movie is “more hypothetical than people think” – kind of like my pants. He doesn’t say anything about being a holdout, just that he’s still waiting to see a script. What an asshole!
