The big news has finally been revealed! Fans have been waiting for an Arrested Development movie for years, and on Oct. 2, series creator Mitchell Hurwitz revealed that the script is about half done and a 9-10 episode miniseries may proceed the movie, with each episode following one of the nine cast members. Hulu and Netflix are already both bidding for online distribution rights to the project.

Well this isn't good. Last month we heard that the AD movie has been pushed back due to a new sitcom Will Arnett and series creator Mitch Hurwitz are creating. This was particularly disheartening because, for the first time, all signs pointed toward a movie being made, and soon. Michael Cera even signed on.
Now we get more bad news. Speaking with TV Squad, Cross said "It's not going to happen."
I think what I will tell you, it's not going to happen. It's not official, but I just don't think it's going to happen. Way too much time it's been (since the show ended). I mean, there's so many people involved. Everyone's doing their own thing, you know. And everybody's aged. It's just not going to happen. I'm sure I speak for everybody when I say we'd love for it to happen, we'd love to work on it, but just I don't think... not going to happen.
