Arrested Development Creator: Show Will Come to Big Screen
There’s always money in the banana stand.
Oh, and Hollywood movies. Those are apparently pretty big too.
Arrested Development fans may be impatiently awaiting the arrival of the show’s fourth season on Netflix, but it looks like there may be more in store than initially expected.
E! Online reports that the irreverent series, which was originally scheduled for a 14-episode run, may make its way to the big screen as well.
During a panel at SXSW, Arrested Development creator Mitchell Hurwitz announced that he’s “confident” the movie will make it to theaters.
In addition to hearing the big news, conference attendees were treated to two scenes from the upcoming season, which kept pace with the series’ bizarre antics from the past, including old gags like the “forget-me-now” and as much Lucille-and-Buster action as one audience could handle.
As for those who doubt that the show will ever hit theaters, cast members were quick to come to Hurwitz’s defense. “There is a bigger story out there that does exist,” assured Will Arnett.
