Oh happy day. An increasing diva-like Michael Cera has reportedly agreed to do the Arrested Development movie. Sources tell E! that Mitchell Hurwitz is writing the script and Ron Howard will direct for Fox Searchlight.
This follows optimistic news from the Oscars, where Howard told Ryan Seacrest, "It's looking very much like we're going to make [the movie], but we've now been asked to stop offering any details. It's cloaked in a little mystery, but it's looking good."
Cera was allegedly that last holdout amongst the cast, with Jason Bateman, Portia de Rossi, Will Arnett, Tony Hale, Jessica Walter, Jeffrey Tambor, and David Cross reportedly already having agreed to do the flick. Posted 02.26.09 by reelz
