"Maeby a movie ?!"

This Is It !
Now we have the official declaration of Mitchell Hurwitz about the movie, he's directing it.
Right now the AD Movie is officially launched, so I'm going to the hospital bar to celebrate it...

At this point the Arrested Development bit has been utterly destroyed from the sheer volume of people constantly chomping at it, hoping they'll sink their teeth into some fresh meat and sate their hunger for news. Well today, my friends, you'll get a nice hard confirmation of some directorial rumors and a sneak peek about what you might see in the film , straight from series writer Mitch Hurwitz.

The Austin Film Festival recently took place and thanks to the gents over at Austin 360 they've provided in-depth detail about the “Art of Storytelling” panel at which Hurwitz and series executive producer and narrator Ron Howard spoke.

Confirming everyone's suspicions, Hurwitz dropped the bomb that he is in fact hammering out a script for the film right now, and when the time comes he'll be the one in the director's chair. PHEW! Arrested Development faithful such as myself have been a little bit worried that the project would go to someone else with not as much stake in the franchise, but thankfully it will be in good hands and the intertubes can breathe a sigh of relief.

He went on to tell us to expect a heavy jail presence in the film, and that he will include a reference to TARP money as a bit of a jab of the film industry for taking so long to make films that are socially relevant. Who will be in prison, we don't know, but expect it not to be George Sr.

It's an incredibly small bit of news, but knowing that Hurwitz knows where he's going instills quite a lot of hope. We'll be keeping a sharp eye open for anything else to come out of the A.D. camp in the coming months.

Go buy-us a Movie !

"I'm doing the time of my life !"

Well, well, well...This is it ! Mitchell Hurwitz and Jim Vallely are working on the Arrested Development script !
Isn't that great ?! The information was revealed by the THR website :

"Arrested Development" creator Mitchell Hurwitz and his co-executive producer James Vallely are working on a screenplay for the long-debated feature version of their short-lived Fox series. Even as they prep a new Fox comedy series with "Arrested" star Will Arnett, the writers are spinning more bizarre encounters for the eccentric, spoiled Bluth clan for possible feature production in the spring.

Imagine, which produced the TV show, and Fox Searchlight are producing the film.

Hurwitz had said that he wouldn't start writing a film unless all the main actors, including Jason Bateman, Michael Cera, David Cross, Arnett, Alia Shawkat, Portia de Rossi and Jeffrey Tambor, were committed. Earlier in the year, speculation circulated about which wanted to return as the show's hyper-invested fans pushed from the sidelines and the actors themselves spurred excitement.

Hey T-Bone !

Not Without My Blog

"It ain't easy being white"

There's a long time since I've wrote an article on the blog, I was very busy this month but everyday day I'm looking for some real news.

So what can we say about the Arrested Development Movie right now ? Not more than the last month but our great Jason Bateman continues to talk about it.

The 24th September he was saying :

It’s still being written and my guess is that is will be shot some time next year. I have a feeling that Mitch [Hurwitz] is halfway done writing it. We’ll probably shoot it middle of next year and then for however long things take to get cut and marketed, so maybe the first part of 2011 I would imagine. That’s just a guess.

Another news, but not about Arrested, Ron Howard have a new comedy TV project !

Now, Ron Howard is back with a new idea for another comedy series at Fox -- a workplace comedy set at an Internal Revenue Service district office.

Fox has committed to a pilot, grabbing the project pre-emptively before it could be pitched to other networks.

It will be written by Brent Forrester, writer-director on another workplace comedy, NBC's "The Office." Forrester and Howard are executive producing with Howard's partners at Imagine TV, Brian Grazer and David Nevins.

"It's an idea Ron had toyed with for many years as a feature," Nevins said. "Eventually, Brian and I convinced him it would be better as a TV show."

The three met with several writers until hitting it off with Forrester.

"The one thing that unites all Americans is their suspicion and hatred for the IRS," Forrester said. "That makes the characters on the show underdogs, because outside the office everyone is suspicious of them."

The IRS agent at the center "is trying hard to believe that his job is good and noble and provides a very important, vital service," Forrester said. "It's a classic workplace show; the model for it is 'Taxi,'" Forrester said.

"In essence, it's a group of eclectic characters who have come to the job from different paths and who represent different points of view and different voices."

There will be procedural elements to the show, too.

"'L.A. Law' had lawsuits, and 'CSI' has murders; this show has audits, tax collection and special ops, with the FBI against organized crime and drug dealers," Forrester said.
