Now that our fierce election year is over, Americans can turn their attention to more pressing matters like what is the goddamned status of the Arrested Development movie. In that spirit, then, we offer you the brand-new Arrested Development Film Tracker™, which will bring you up-to-the minute cast confirmations, disavowals, and cagey statements of, "I don't understand the question, and I won't respond to it." Today, we have a brand-new development straight from the mouth from one of Arrested's key players. To the banana stand!Inaugurating the AD Film Tracker is Ron Howard, who said this during his junket duties for Frost/Nixon:
“I think it’s looking very promising,” said Howard. “We’re still just lacking that one thing we need: a script.” He also confirmed that Mitchell Hurwitz, who created the Emmy-winning series, would direct the movie.
That adds both Howard and Hurwitz to the "yea" column already populated by Jeffrey Tambor, Jason Bateman, and David Cross, leaving only Michael Cera as the film's lone holdout thus far. Superbad, it's time to get with the program. We don't want to do this, but we can always replace you with Annyong.
