I never know what to believe anymore re: the rumored Arrested Development movie, but this news seems pretty “Solid as a Rock” if you ask me: Creator Mitchell Hurwitz and co-executive producer James Vallely are working on a screenplay for the long-debated feature version of the short-lived Fox series. OKAY! So it’s really happening. Question for A.D. fans: Is it too soon at this point to start humming “The Final Countdown”? I mean, I hope that after embedding this video, I won’t look back a la Tobias Fünke and think, “I prematurely shot my wad on what was supposed to be a dry run, if you will.” Because then I’d have something of a mess on my hands. Or, in the slightly less vulgar words of Lucille, “Ew, don’t look now, but G.O.B.’s about to start his magic show…”
Yeah, so basically we’re going to continue to use any excuse to post random quotes from Arrested Development. It’s the PopWatch way. What do you think, long-suffering P-Dubs — do you refuse to begin your final countdown until a release date is announced?
