Arrested Development fans may be in for a treat. Star Jason Bateman confirmed to E! Online's "Watch With Kristin" columnist Kristin Dos Santos today that the creative geniuses behind Arrested Development have put the wheels in motion toward a major motion picture of the Fox comedy. Bateman and other cast members received calls recently from Arrested producers gauging their interest in the project.

"I can confirm that a round of sniffing has started," Bateman told Dos Santos. "Any talk is targeting a post-strike situation, of course. I think, as always, that it's a question of whether the people with the money are willing to give our leader, Mitch Hurwitz, what he deserves for his participation. And I can speak for the cast when I say our fingers are crossed."
