For far too long, Jason Bateman just couldn’t get “Arrested.” Since the untimely cancellation of the cult favorite series “Arrested Development,” which aired on Fox from 2003-2006, Bateman has continued to express an interest in reviving the series as a feature film. And finally last month, Bateman’s co-star Jeffrey Tambor confirmed the much-discussed movie was a likely go, with series creator Mitch Hurwitz and executive producer Ron Howard reportedly inking deals with Fox Searchlight shortly thereafter.
ComingSoon.net got the update on the “Development” developments from Bateman:
ComingSoon,net: Will it be a relief when you actually start filming the “Arrested Development” movie so that people will stop asking you about it?
CS: Is the story already on paper?
CS: Do you see having Michael Cera and your relationship in film as something crucial? I thought that was one of the more important parts of the show.
