'Arrested Development' movie: 'It's really happening!'

I never know what to believe anymore re: the rumored Arrested Development movie, but this news seems pretty “Solid as a Rock” if you ask me: Creator Mitchell Hurwitz and co-executive producer James Vallely are working on a screenplay for the long-debated feature version of the short-lived Fox series. OKAY! So it’s really happening. Question for A.D. fans: Is it too soon at this point to start humming “The Final Countdown”? I mean, I hope that after embedding this video, I won’t look back a la Tobias Fünke and think, “I prematurely shot my wad on what was supposed to be a dry run, if you will.” Because then I’d have something of a mess on my hands. Or, in the slightly less vulgar words of Lucille, “Ew, don’t look now, but G.O.B.’s about to start his magic show…”

Yeah, so basically we’re going to continue to use any excuse to post random quotes from Arrested Development. It’s the PopWatch way. What do you think, long-suffering P-Dubs — do you refuse to begin your final countdown until a release date is announced?

    I’m not sure how I feel about this. I love the show and would love to see the characters again but I’m worried that the feature film format wouldn’t really work for this type of show.

  • Alex

    i’m really excited but the thing is that they’ve been saying that they’ve been working on a script for over a year now, and that it will be happening, but when? WHEN???

    Tobias: You know, Mother Lucille, there’s a psychological concept known as denial that I think you’re evincing. It’s when a thought is so hateful that the mind literally rejects it.
    Lucille: You are a worse psychiatrist than you are a son-in-law, and you will never get work as an actor because you have no talent.
    Tobias: Well, if she’s not going to say anything, I certainly can’t help her.

    will “STEVE HOLT!!” be in there as well?

  • Cris

    This better not be a trick. After all, a trick is something a whore does for money.

    • Alison

      or candy…

      • Anthony

        or cocaine
