It’s difficult to believe that anyone actually expects an Arrested Development movie to happen at this point. It’s been teased endlessly by the cast for years now, but how long can fandom allow itself to be teased? Last word was that it was really, really happening this time. Now, we’re back to not so much.

Arrested star Jason Bateman recently spoke to MTV and told them the whole thing has been pushed back again. He says, “We're hoping for the end of the year.” Not long ago word was that shooting was set to commence before the year was out.

Instead, showrunner Mitch Hurwitz has found something he’d rather do. He’s working on a new comedy series with Will Arnett and Bateman says that’s pushed it back a few more months. And after that? I’m sure it’ll be pushed again. It’s obviously not really a priority either for Hurwitz or Fox. If it’s not a priority, then maybe they shouldn’t do it? I mean at this point why are they doing it? Talk is cheap, their actions seem to indicate it’s something nobody involved is really all that excited about.

But let’s be fair. The show’s only been cancelled for half a decade. I’m sure if they just wait a full decade, interest in it will crescendo and then the timing will be right. Give it time, let’s sell a few more Arrested Development DVDs first.
