Hold up! 'Arrested Development' movie not yet greenlit

Posted on

Those Bluths are such teases! EW has learned that no deal — much less a script — is

in place for a movie version of the Fox comedy Arrested Development, but that

hasn’t stopped the actors from chatting about it. Last week, Jeffrey Tambor told

EW that the project was a go, but his costar Jason Bateman reinforces what EW

has learned, saying that his costar’s comments were premature. “They are trying

to decide if they can make it for the money they need,” quips star Jason

Bateman. “Michael Cera is a huge star now…with a huge star attitude to go with

it. His salary will probably be the holdup.” (Additional
