Arrested Development Movie: Coming in 2011 Says Mitch Hurwitz

Arrested Development creator Mitch Hurwitz confirmed that he is currently writing an Arrested Development movie script. He also said he hopes to shoot and release the film before the end of the year. That said IMDB lists the film’s release as 2012. At least they list it. Hurwitz told Digital Spy similar news.

The conversation seemed to confirm that everyone from the series cast would be in the film. And he revealed that the rumor that Michael Cera didn’t want to do the film (because he’s become such big a movie star) was propagated by the cast (including Cera), until he started to get hate mail from fans.


Actor, nerd, poet, producer, writer mikl-em made his name short so you wouldn't have to. In addition to his blog you can find his writing in "Hi Fructose" magazine and witness him almost life-sized in various plays at The Dark Room Theater in SF's Mission district.

He tends to write about theater, humor, San Francisco culture and history, and stuff that's just plain weird. He thanks Scott for sharing the keys to the Laughing Squid virtual HQ and promises to uphold whatever it is that the mirthful cephalopod would prefer to be uplifted.
