Jeffrey Tambor, who plays George Bluth, Sr. on the cult-hit TV show "Arrested Development," has confirmed that an "Arrested" movie is in the works.

"After months of speculation, I think we have finally figured out for sure that we are indeed doing an 'Arrested Development' movie," says Tambor, according to EW.com.

Numerous "Arrested" cast members have publicly expressed in adapting the show, which was canceled back in 2006, to the big screen.

The wit-driven sitcom aired for three seasons on FOX before it was canceled. Along with Tambor, Jason Bateman, Portia de Rossi, Will Arnett, Jessica Walter, and Michael Cera also starred in the series.

"I am very excited about that. I love that cast and crew and I felt like we had more to say," says Tambor.

Cool. I hope they actually go thru with it and get all the original cast members to sign on. That show should NEVER have been cancelled.:mad:

I think this show was cast perfectly. Every actor played their part so well. In the end I just couldn't believe that this show actually got canceled while American Idol or some other reality TV show went on to it's billionth season. Sad times. :monkey2

This is excellent news. Quality shows like Arrested Development don't come around very often and i was very disappointed that it was canceled even after winning the award for best comedy series in its first season.

Thankfully good taste, intelligence and common sense are going to win out.

One of the funniest TV shows I've ever seen. It never should've been canceled so early, but the majority of the viewing public wouldn't know good comedy if it kicked them square in the crotch. How else do you explain shows like King of Queens and According to Jim lasting nearly a decade while AD only makes it for 3 years?

Very happy to hear they're doing a movie. :cool:

Glad to see it reincarnated on the big screen though, maybe this will make an HBO or Showtime have interest in picking up the show.

Word to that, not many people get the humor of this show 'cause it's too 'Smart' for them. All the characters are brilliant.

His constant battles with the 'Alliance of Magicians' were great! I also loved when he chipped his tooth and everytime he spoke he whistled! :lol

If you own the DVDs, you have to listen to the few commentary tracks. They some of them are just as funny. And Jason Bateman was underrated on that show. One of my all time favorites.

From what I remember, Showtime pushed hard to get this, but the creator of it either wanted too much money or did not want to do it. One of those two and it killed the deal.

You aren't joking. I just saw Hancock and his style of comedy was perfect for that role. He was really funny, in an up-tight kind of way.

OMG. I HATE Jim Belushi. Living in Chicago, I have to stomach watching him be the "official ambassador" for any Chicago sports team. The only reason he has a job is because his brother had talent.

Oh happy day!

Inside sources close to the negotiations of the upcoming Arrested Development movie tell me that Superbad and Juno star (and before that, hello, George-Michael Bluth!) Michael Cera has finally agreed to do the feature film project.

Cera had been the lone holdout among the show's stars for several weeks. All other Bluths, including Jason Bateman, Portia de Rossi, Will Arnett, Tony Hale, Jessica Walter, Jeffrey Tambor and David Cross, are already game, according to sources.

So when exactly will the movie happen?

According to insiders, the movie may go as early as the end of the year, if they can put it together in time. I'm told Mitchell Hurwitz is writing the script, Ron Howard is directing and Fox Searchlight is the studio.

But don't you dare ask the cast or crew for inside info!

As Ron Howard told our own Ryan Seacrest at the Oscars on Sunday: "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."

Um, I'll say!

Anyone else thrilled to see that all the Bluths headed for the big screen? I hear David Cross is so excited he just blue himself.

The fact that Michael Cera was the lone holdout, the last to join, makes him sound/look like a diva. Maybe he thought he was too big for Arrested Development now.

Awww... :(


Fans of 'Arrested Development' might not be too happy with David Cross after they read this interview. Why? Because he has doubts that an 'AD' movie is ever going to come to pass.

"(I)t's not going to happen," Cross told me the other day when I spoke to him about his new stand-up special, 'David Cross: Bigger and Blackerer,' which premieres on the new cable channel Epix on Saturday (Friday night) at midnight ET.

"Way too much time it's been (since the show ended)," he told me. "I mean, there's so many people involved. Everyone's doing their own thing, you know. And everybody's aged. It's just not going to happen. I'm sure I speak for everybody when I say we'd love for it to happen, we'd love to work on it, but just I don't think... not going to happen."
