Jason Bateman on Arrested Development Movie: Soon?
Posted 03.12.10 by Ryan
Jason Bateman has pleaded patience in regards to the Arrested Development movie, based on the cult favorite sitcom, but MTV couldn't help but ask for an update at last weekend's Oscar ceremony. Bateman said that the new TV series that Arrested creator Mitchell Hurwitz is creating for Will Arnett will likely delay the start of production.
His show with Arnett has pushed it another few months. [Arrested is] still coming. We're hoping for the end of the year.
An Arrested Development movie has been in development for a few years now, with producer Ron Howard claiming that progress on the project was "looking good" at last year's Oscars.
As for those curious about Hurwitz's new show, Wilde Kingdom, it will feature Arnett as another brash and self-centered rich guy, not unlike his Arrested character GOB. Keri Russell will play his love interest.
