The Arrested Development Movie Might Happen This Year

Posted By on Fri, Feb 4, 2011 at 3:17 PM

I'm sure this announcement is just a cruel joke designed to crush my emotions down the road, but for now, I'm going to be excited by what Digital Spy reported today:


Mitch Hurwitz has revealed that he wants to have the Arrested Development movie in cinemas by the end of this year.

Hurwitz, who created the short-lived sitcom, told Digital Spy that he is currently working on a script with Jim Valley that will resurrect the Bluth family for the big screen.

"We've started that process and it is our sincere hope to shoot it this year and get it out this year," Hurwitz said. "That's what we're hoping, but a lot of things have to fall into place for that to happen."

Asked about the storyline for the Arrested movie, Hurwitz added: "I want to keep whatever it is we end up with as a surprise, which kind of betrays the fact that we might not have the whole thing worked out!

"But I don't like to toy with the affections of our fans. They've been so supportive and we're so grateful, so I kind of hate to answer the question until I can say, 'Yep, we've shot it, it opens next week'. Otherwise it feels like we're toying with people and we do not mean to do that. It has just taken a while to get it going."
