All Things Arrested Development
It's no secret we here at the Popcorn Trick are huge fans of the show Arrested Development. In fact, I don't think I'd be going out too far on a limb to say we both think it's one of the top 5 sitcoms of all time. (Cline feel free to chime in with agreement or rage).
Because of that, I've decided to try and make this blog THE spot on the web to find out all news about the alleged movie about the show.
That's right, apparently there is an Arrested Development movie in the works. Read about it here.
The good news: It seems like the entire primary cast (minus one) is not only keen to the idea, but clearing their schedule to make it happen. It also looks like Ron Howard will be back (not sure if he would be directing, if not, may I suggest Jay Chandrasekhar who has directed a number of the episodes) and producer/creator Mitch Hurwitz is involved as well.
The bad news: The aforementioned holdout may be Michael Cera. He has mentioned he's uninterested in a movie right now. I'd hate to see him not be a part of it, but I'd hate to not see a movie more.
And yes, I realize that there's a possibility that a movie could taint the show's platinum-level run in quality. But who cares? If, in the small chance it stinks, we still have the DVDs to fall back on. And I for one believe the self-referential nature of the show will not let it happen.
So c'mon Michael Cera (if you are the holdout) get on board and make this news perfect.
More Arrested Development movie updates as they happen.
