Jeffrey Tambor Taunting Us With 'Arrested Development' Movie News

I know, I know. An Arrested Development movie is the pony your dad has promised you year and year but never delivered. Every time a former cast member is interviewed, they give the typical "I'd love to do it, and creator Mitch Hurwitz wants to do it" response, and everyone gets excited--we're getting a pony!--yet the garage remains stuffed with sporting equipment. So this interview with Jeffrey Tambor, where he says he'd like to do it, probably isn't that big of a deal. Except that he says they are doing it!

When Collider cleverly inquired if it was happening by asking if he was sick of people asking, Tambor said this:

Well, no, because we're doing it. We are going. It's a go. Yeah. I just actually this week talked to Mitch Hurwitz, so we're doing it.

And that there's no script, but:

When the writer calls you, and the director, and the executive producer call you, it's a pretty good sign.

Tambor also said to get our hopes up, so time to get your hopes up. I'm holding off until I hear some ukulele strumming.

(Thanks, Colm.)
