Will Arnett Says ‘Arrested Development’ Will Shoot This Year
Good news for those of you who are fans of “Arrested Development.” After years of hearing rumors and rumblings of a movie being in the works, it looks like they’re finally going to shoot one this year. Well, it’s still a little early to say it’ll happen 100%, but with Michael Cera saying it’d shoot this year as well, I think they’re really trying to make it happen. ComingSoon talked with Will Arnett recently who confirmed that they’re definitely going to shoot it this year. “That’s the plan,” Arnett told them, before joking that, “We’re hoping [to shoot it] once Jason Bateman gets out of rehab. I think that’s when we’re going to start shooting.”
Arnett otherwise gave a fairly straight answer: “It’s very refreshing. We are working on the movie right now, yeah… We don’t have a completed script yet, but it’s forthcoming and we’re going to make the movie this year.” As far as I know, that means they got everyone to agree to return, including Jason Bateman, Portia de Rossi, Alia Shawkat, David Cross, Jeffrey Tambor, etc, but who knows if they’ve got other new plans? We also want to know if Ron Howard will direct, but it doesn’t seem likely considering he’s shooting that Vince Vaughn comedy next. We’ll keep you updated! Who’s excited to finally see an Arrested Development movie?
