A deals with Mitch Hurwitz and Ron Howard has been signed to bring Arrested Development to the big screen.
A film version of the short-lived sitcom has been rumoured since the show was axed back in 2006. Cast members Jason Bateman, Will Arnett and Jeffrey Tambor all expressed an interest in returning for a movie.
The show’s creator Hurwitz will write and direct the feature film, with Howard expected to provide voice-over narration and executive produce.
Howard said earlier this month of the Arrested movie: “I’m very, very hopeful – more hopeful now than ever – that it’s really going to happen.”
