Is the Arrested Development Movie Happening?

Bluth company card torn in halfThings have been vague on the Arrested Development-front. It sounds like they are definitely on board with doing something but what that something is has yet to be revealed. Will it continue on Netflix as a TV show or as that long-promised movie? Creator Mitch Hurwitz recently told Rolling Stone what his plans are, which includes a movie (really) that brings everyone together unlike the individual character episodes of the latest season:

I’m working on the movie right now. I can’t get into much more detail because I don’t want to scare anybody off. I don’t want to be presumptuous about it. I don’t own the property outright – it’s a 20th Century Fox property. But everybody seems really into it and really eager to make a movie.

A TV season is a six-month commitment. But I think it would be very doable to get them together for four or five weeks to make a movie.

I’m hoping it happens as soon as possible. But I want to be very careful about not putting out false information. I want to get a time and tell everybody when it’s happening and not play with people. Right now, I’m trying to do something else for Netflix and a movie project and things. I’m always sort of superstitious about talking about this stuff before it happens. It’s the best way to guarantee it doesn’t happen.

Hurwitz also said that ideally he would make the movie and follow it up with a fifth season of the show. But obviously nothing is definite or green-lit yet. Last time we were promised a movie, we ended up with a fourth season instead. But, hey, at least we know he’s devoted to continuing the story.

What do you think? Do you want a movie and more show? Or some other combination? Or would you rather they just leave it alone? Let us know in the comments below!
