After a couple of years of rumors, two of the former stars of a multiple Emmy-winning sitcom confirm that a feature film version of the series is a go, according to media reports..
The show is Fox’s critically acclaimed “Arrested Development,” and former stars Will Arnett and Jeffrey Tambor are both saying the movie is a done deal.
The Huffington Post reports that Tambor said the movie will be made, quoting him as saying, “It’s all going straight, everyone’s on board.”
In a separate report, former star Will Arnett also confirmed that there will be a feature film adaptation of the show, according to LAist.com.
In a podcast for Marc Maron’s "WTF," Arnett told the host, "We are gonna make the ‘Arrested Development’ movie. … Mitch Hurwitz, who is really just a brilliant, brilliant guy, is in the process right now of concocting something that’s really kind of unexpected, I think. That I really don’t want to give away, but I think the fans are going to be really satisfied," the LAist story reports.
Hurwitz, the show’s creator/producer, has been among those fueling the rumors of a movie.
“Arrested Development” won six Emmys during its aborted run on Fox, including outstanding comedy series in 2004. It received a total of 22 Emmy nominations in just three seasons, airing from 2003-2006.
