We /arrested-development-movie-not-going-to-happen/reported recently that actor David Cross said an Arrested Development movie was dead, and Justine Batemantold us the same thing... but it's still apparently not dead. The Los Angeles Times recently spoke with Arrested Development star Jason Bateman, who said there was still life in the proejct. Here's an excerpt from the site's article.
"David says that it's dead, but it's not dead at all," Bateman said in an interview Friday while promoting The Switch, a romantic comedy out in August in which he costars with Jennifer Aniston. "[Show creator] Mitchell Hurwitz is busy shooting a new pilot with Will Arnett, and perhaps when they're done shooting and editing and he's delivered that, perhaps he'll jump into writing the script. Once the script is done, it goes to the studio and they decide if it's a script they want to make, and the actors will decide if they want to be in it."
Which is all to say?
"It's a long process. But it could happen and it's still in everybody's plans for it to happen."
