Brian Grazer Shoots Down Rumors Of Meta ‘Arrested Development’ Movie Storyline > The Playlist
Weeks before the big announcement at the New Yorker Festival earlier this month, a rumor had leaked about potential details of a “Arrested Development” film, noting that it would center on “Ron Howard [as he] is making a movie about the Bluths using an A-List cast. But Dr. Tobias plays himself because nobody wants to play him in the movie. The Bluths decide to make their own movie in contention with Ron Howard’s.”
While such rumors are easily shrugged off as rubbish, this one seemed to have a little more merit, as it sounded twisted and hilarious enough to be from Hurwitz, and seemed to somewhat tie in with the television series’ conclusion. As quickly as the rumor permeated, though, producer Brian Grazer has now taken the opportunity to shoot it down, with MTV reporting that Grazer “denied rumors that the plot would follow Ron Howard as he tries to make a movie based on the series’ characters the Bluths.”
Netflix Orders Fourth Season Of ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT!!
Well, looks like I might finally be signing up for Netflix...No word on how many episodes. Series mastermind Mitch Hurwitz has indicated the plan is for each episode to follow only one of the characters from the first three seasons, persumably to accomodate the players who are busy with big-screen projects or "The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret."
Jason Bateman Has Some 'Bad Words' For His Directorial Debut | The Playlist
“Arrested Development” is finally making its way back before cameras thanks to Netflix, so that means that the cast will be too busy for other projects in the near future, right? Wrong. Jason Bateman is planning on taking the lead role in the Andrew Dodge’s 2011 Black Listed indie comedy “Bad Words.” He’ll play a bitter thirtysomething (despite being 43) who exploits a loophole to enter a kids' spelling bee. Not content with simply starring in the film though, Bateman has lined this up to be his debut feature as a director.
Bateman first tried his hand at directing way back in 1989 on his sitcom “Valerie.” He’s since directed episodes of six other shows including the excellent “Afternoon Delight” episode of "Arrested Development." As well as acting and directing, Bateman will also serve as a producer through his fledgling company Aggregate Films (who are also bringing Seth Gordon’s “Identity Thief” to the big screen along with Darko Entertainment.)
