Letterman Asks Tony Hale for an 'Arrested Development' Movie Update

On Friday, David Letterman tried to fish for an update from Veep's Tony Hale about whether or not an Arrested Development movie is happening in the most straight-talk way possible: "I'm tired of hearing about what a genius Mitch Hurwitz is. I'm just tired of it." Apparently Hale knows as much as the rest of the internet does, which is to say he has no idea but seems more than game to be part of it.

The Full Original Cast & Writers of Arrested Development Are Coming Back for the New Season

Somewhere, right now, someone is writing lines for all eight major Arrested Development characters to say to each other. Can you even stand it? Or are you literally not able to stand because your body has thrown itself to the floor, wracked with joyful convulsions at the mere thought that the full cast of the series will be back for the new season on Netflix, along with the show's original writers? I will take your silence as a tacit affirmative response to that last question. That's it. Deep breaths.

David Cross Talks About That Damned Arrested Development Movie, Tolerates Keith Olbermann

Here's a nice, long interview between Keith Olbermann and David Cross in which Cross both gives a pseudo-update to the Arrested Development movie and talks about what it's like to be asked about the Arrested Development every goddamned day. Then Olbermann starts telling a story about Lizzie Montgomery and there may be something of interest past that point but to be honest I just couldn't make it that far. Olbermaaaaaaaaann!

Jason Bateman: Plot of the Arrested Development Movie Is "Incredible"

Here is today's tiny scrap of information/hearsay/hope about the mythical Arrested Development movie: Jason Bateman met with Mitch Hurwitz last week about the in-progress script, and he says that the plot is "incredible" and left him "vibrating." Vibrating! That's good, right? He wasn't having a seizure or anything? We'll just assume it's a good thing and keep on planning to have our collective lives changed by this thing when it finally comes out.

After six years of teasing us with talk of an Arrested Development reunion, Mitch Hurwitz and Company are finally filming the new season and the movie. While the process took so long that even the cast, at times, developed an “I’ll believe it when I see it” attitude towards the project, filming of the new season of AD is finally underway and there are photos to prove it.

The Party Down Movie May Be Declared A Ron Donald Do

We continue your nonstop 24-hour coverage of the possibility of a Party Down movie with this Adam Scott soundbite: “We have a treatment, and if everyone’s schedules work out, we’ll shoot it over the summer.” BOOM. I guess that means Starz agreed to sign off on the thing. It also means that a Party Down movie and an Arrested Development movie could potentially be in theaters AT THE SAME TIME, which might make some less-equipped movie theaters explode with the massively high pressure of realized dreams. God, imagine the carnage. Popcorn and Jujyfruits would be everywhere.

How About This For The Arrested Development Movie Plot?

Screenrant reports that a source allegedly passed along the Arrested Development movie plot, so now if it's fake, we can all be disappointed together. According to a cast member, "Ron Howard is making a movie about the Bluths using an A-List cast. But Dr. Tobias plays himself because nobody wants to play him in the movie. The Bluths decide to make their own movie in contention with Ron Howard’s." As if Dave Attell wouldn't be chomping at the bit. Please. Their source also reports that an official announcement, including a synopsis of the plot, is due out in a few weeks.

Steve Holt! Wants to Be in the New Arrested Development Episodes

Steve Holt! (That was a Steve Holt! of despair.) Justin Grant Wade, the actor who played Steve Holt on Arrested Development, has not been asked to be in the show's return on Netflix or in theaters. Steve Holt! (That was a Steve Holt! of utter astonishment). Wade has launched a campaign to bring back the character, taking to Reddit tonight at 8. Steve Holt! (That's a Steve Holt! of admiration for his shamelessness and ingenuity). Stick in there, buddy. Steve Holt! (Rallying Steve Holt! of encouragement.)

Fox Show on the Run: Which Network Will Be Arrested Development's New Home?

You've probably already heard this weekend's big news that, in addition to the long-gestating Arrested Development movie, Mitch Hurwitz and company intend to create a 10-episode fourth season of the cult favorite show. Several obstacles stand in the way of these forthcoming projects (the cast's busy schedules, writing the scripts to the new season and the movie, filming what'll amount to six or seven hours worth of new content, etc.), but none of the tasks at hand are more crucial than selecting the right TV network to carry the 10-episode mini-season. While it's hard to imagine any of the Big Four networks are chomping at the bit to [...]

Jason Bateman Speaks Again About The Oft-Foretold Arrested Development Movie

There was a prophesy made long, a legend about the coming of an Arrested Development movie that would redeem us all. Every so often, a prophet by the name of Jason Bateman must emerge from his shabby chic hermit's cove to breath new life into his people's faith. "Nothing would make me happier," Bateman said last night on Conan. "Unfortunately, I have no update of any sort of substance. As soon as we make the bosses' deal, the genius Mitch Hurwitz, when he gets what he's asking for, we will work." The film will arrive when the time is right. I mean, was it two years too late [...]

Jeffrey Tambor Says Arrested Development Movie Should Start Shooting Next Year

All will be right with the world and there will be no more sadness anywhere!!! [via]
