Coming Soon (Maybe): Arrested Development: The Movie
Despite the fact that producer Mitchell Hurwitz has been able to revive Arrested Development as a 15-episode TV series for Netflix, he's still aiming for a movie version. Today's (Thursday) Los Angeles Times is reporting that Hurwitz designed the Netflix episodes as the first act of a three-act story that will conclude with Arrested Development: The Movie. Cast member Jason Bateman told the newspaper that the series is not really going to be finished until those next two acts are played out. He disclosed that the television (read Internet) episodes will not end in a cliffhanger to set up the movie, but that they will raise questions that will only be answered in the longer feature. That movie, he added, could be in theaters or it might just be a two-hour thing on Netflix.
