Arrested Development Film Planned

Actor JASON BATEMAN has confirmed plans are underway for a movie version of canceled TV sitcom ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT.

A rumoured meeting between the star and series creator Mitch Hurwitz late last year (Dec07) fueled speculation a big-screen adaptation of the cult show was in the pipeline.

And now the Juno star has confirmed the cast has received calls from executives asking if they would be interested in reviving their roles once the ongoing Hollywood writers strike is over.

He tells E! News, “I can confirm that a round of sniffing has started. Any talk is targeting a post-strike situation, of course.

“I think, as always, that it’s a question of whether the people with the money are willing to give our leader, Mitch Hurwitz, what he deserves for his participation. And I can speak for the cast when I say our fingers are crossed.”
