Will Arnett did an interview to promote his new film, When in Rome (which is more about the tasty Kristen Bell than Arnett really) but the topic quickly turned to the status of the Arrested Development movie they keep teasing us with.
Arnett says its happening, and may film as early as this summer!
Movie Web was talking to Will Arnett:
With Arrested Development the movie seemingly up in the air, we asked the actor specifically about the film adaptation of the series and when that might begin production? “What is that? I’ve never heard of that. I have no idea what you are talking about,” the actor replied jokingly. “No, we’re real close,” Arnett confirmed. “We’re just finalizing the script and should begin shooting it this year,” he concluded.
While I am constantly being told I have to watch this show, I still haven’t but I am not blind to the cult like devotion it gets.
But I have heard all this before, and each time a different cast member drops “we are so close!” and then speculates on a filming schedule.
Should Arrested Development fans get excited? Is this ever going to happen?
