I hate to be the naysayer, but I've read that they were officially starting a movie at least a half dozen times in the last few years.  I'll believe they're doing a new series and a movie when I see the trailer on tv or in a theater.

They've never said officially, though, with a plan and everything.  The people in charge have only been saying they plan to do it.

BTW, the plan is for a 9 episode mini TV series, each one focusing on each character.  The first scene of the movie will be all the characters finally together.

Exactly.  Lots of "hopes" and "somedays" and vague "we're working on its" but no official announcement until now.

The thing is, that if you read that article the writer does note that:

Quote
Creatively, it's all worked out. The only holdouts are the business types.

Quote
So here's what we have: Hurwitz has been reported to be "writing" since at least February 2009. The movie was supposed to come out in 2010, then 2011, then 2012, and now 2013. Hurwitz says now that he has part of a script, which is the same thing Tony Hale said two years ago, he hopes to do the episodes, and he wants to do the movie provided they can "get the film companies on board."

Quote
As hard as it is to hear, if there are no "film companies on board" yet, then "announcement" and "confirmation" are not the right words, and there's no deal. There aren't any episodes if nobody has agreed to air them. There isn't any movie if nobody has agreed to finance one. It's absolutely true that getting the creative people on board and getting a script are the first steps to getting a movie made if there's going to be one, so it's good that this state of affairs that has been in place for two or three years is still in place. But these are necessary, not sufficient, conditions. They don't mean there is a movie.

Look, I'd love to see it happen.  I'm just not ready to believe it after having essentially the same thing happen a half dozen times in the past.  There is no film company on board yet, and there is no signed deal with anyone according to Horowitz.   I can make official announcements that this is happening until the cows come home, but without the actual money people signing off on it, it's just hearsay.

WOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Quote
Beverly Hills, Calif., November 18, 2011—In a landmark deal, all new episodes of the Emmy Award-winning comedy series “Arrested Development” will be coming exclusively to Netflix for its U.S. members to watch instantly, beginning in 2013.

For the first time in their histories, Twentieth Century Fox Television and Imagine Television will produce original first-run entertainment content for the world’s leading internet subscription service, bringing back the acclaimed series to production on all new episodes five years after its cancellation.

One of Time Magazine’s “100 Best TV Shows of All-TIME,” the tale of the formerly wealthy, deeply eccentric Bluth clan aired for three seasons, 2003-2006, on Fox and was honored with the Emmy award for Outstanding Comedy Series after its first season on the air.

“Arrested Development is one of the finest American comedies in TV history and its return through Netflix is a perfect example of how we are working closely with studios and networks to provide consumers with entertainment they love,” said Ted Sarandos, Netflix Chief Content Officer.

“It’s also a perfect example of how broad and successful our relationship has become with Fox as we work together with their film, television, international and digital divisions on several exciting initiatives,” he added.

“Netflix’s bold entrance into original programming presents an exciting new opportunity for our two companies” commented Peter Levinsohn, Fox Filmed Entertainment’s President of New Media & Digital Distribution. “Bringing a classic show back to production on new episodes exclusively for Netflix customers is a game changer, and illustrates the incredible potential the new digital landscape affords great content providers like Twentieth Century Fox Television and Imagine.”

Commented 20th Century Fox TV Chairmen Dana Walden and Gary Newman, “We build brands at this studio which are so distinctive that audiences still clamor for them years after they go off the air. ‘Arrested Development’ is a great example of that—it has stood the test of time. This innovative deal with Netflix represents a new business model that is extremely exciting and opens the door for a wide range of new collaborations.”

“We also pride ourselves on breaking the rules at this studio, and after bringing back two canceled series – ‘Family Guy’ and ‘Futurama’—to enormous success, we are bullish on the prospects for this brilliant series. We can’t wait to get back to work with Mitch, Ron and Brian on bringing the Bluths back to America’s living rooms,” they added.

Said Imagine Entertainment co-founders Ron Howard and Brian Grazer, “Of all the projects we’ve been involved with over the years, we probably get more questions about Mitch Hurtwitz’s brilliant‘Arrested Development’ than any other– everyone, ourselves included, seems to feel like the Bluths left the party a bit too soon. Bringing a series back from cancellation almost never happens, but then, ‘Arrested’ always was about as unconventional as they get, so it seems totally appropriate that this show that broke the mold is smashing it to pieces once again.”

Added Howard, “After a long hiatus, I’m dying to finally get back to the narrator’s microphone…’It’s Arrested…Development.’

The Emmy-winning comedy had its final broadcast on February 10, 2006 and concerned Michael Bluth (Jason Bateman) and his eccentric family comprised of his son George Michael (Michael Cera), his father George Bluth Sr. (Jeffrey Tambor), his mother Lucille (Jessica Walter), his brothers George Oscar Bluth Ii (Will Arnett), Buster Bluth (Tony Hale) and sister Lindsay Funke (Portia de Rossi), and Lindsay’s husband Tobias (David Cross) and their daughter Maeby (Alia Shawkat).

“Arrested Development” is a production of Imagine Television and 20th Century Fox Television. Ron Howard, Brian Grazer and Mitch Hurwitz are executive producers.

Mitch Hurwitz Talks Arrested Development 2.0

Quote
Speaking on the floor of the National Association of Broadcasters convention, Netflix chief Ted Sarandos confirmed that all ten episodes of Arrested's long-awaited fourth season will premiere together on a single day sometime next year.  Hurwitz also confirmed that production is set to begin this summer, but he also dropped a new nugget of information about what form the Arrested revival will take.

Originally, Hurwitz's plan had been to make the revival like an anthology, with each episode telling a somewhat self-contained story about a specific character. "That is now kind of evolving into becoming more like the old show again," Hurwitz told a packed house of conventioneers, who politely applauded the introduction of other Netflix offerings (such as David Fincher and Kevin Spacey's House of Cards), but exploded at the mention of Arrested and the arrival of cast members Will Arnett, David Cross, Alia Shawkat, Jeffrey Tambor, and Jessica Walter. The reason for the change: Hurwitz sees a chance to tweak the show's format to take advantage of the fact that the full ten-episode season will debut at once, rather than over two-and-a-half months. "There's something exciting about trying to break the form again," he said.

Terry Crews and Isla Fisher will be in the new Arrested Development

Quote


It's been many tense hours since the last bit of Arrested Development casting news, no doubt leaving fans to wonder whether the always-dubious fourth season or they themselves had suddenly been blinked out of existence. But no, you are still tethered to this astral plane and Arrested Development's reunion is still happening, and it's still divulging many of its secrets well in advance, so take existential comfort in knowing that Isla Fisher and Carl Weathers School of Acting graduate Terry Crews have also been added to the cast. "Who will they play?" you ask, eager to have everything spoiled for you and also for some sort of shackle to reality. No word yet, though we'd guess "someone petite and pretty" and "someone large and intimidating." Guess which one is which! That should keep you busy until the next casting update.
