Plans are apparently underway to bring “Arrested Development” to the big screen.
(Ah, nothing feels better than giving a short-lived series - well, “Arrested” lasted a reasonable 3 seasons - a reprieve on the big screen, does it?)
Speaking to TV Guide, star Alia Shawkat said "Mitch [Hurwitz, the creator] actually recently told us that there is a good possibility for a movie, and that he's talking to Ron Howard about it."
Ronny, of course, is one of the show’s producers. He also narrated the series. If anyone can make it happen, Fonzie’s pal can. (And let’s face it; it’ll save Jason Bateman from the inevitable “Teen Wolf Again”).
Update: There has been no official word of any sort about a movie, but many of the cast have mentioned the possibility of one. There may be one at some point in the future, but it is not currently in the works.
