Jeffrey Tambor, aka George (and Oscar) Bluth from Fox’s Arrested Development, told EW.com that the movie spinoff of the critically acclaimed television is indeed in the works—and it’s for British eyes only! (If that doesn’t make sense, none of this will and you must buy all three AD seasons on DVD immediately.)
“After months of speculation, I think we have finally figured out for sure that we are indeed doing an Arrested Development movie,” said Tambor. “I am very excited about that. I love the cast and crew and I felt like we had more to say.”
Arrested Development, the Ron Howard-narrated off-kilter comedy, was tragically canceled in 2006 due to low ratings (more accurately due to zero promotion). The folks at Fox were concerned for a while about how much money the film could make, but considering the following Arrested Development drew after it was canceled, though, theaters across America should be packed with nevernudes, man-eating seals and incestuous cousins come opening night.
No word yet on whether or not Tantamount Pictures will have a hand in the movie’s production. All of the show’s core actors look to be on board with the movie, but we’ve all forgotten about Anne Veal again, so if she drops out it ain’t no thang.
