Is George Michael the 'Arrested Development' Holdout?

Is the hunched, uncomfortable form of Michael Cera the one thing blocking our view of a much-wanted Arrested Development movie? Series creator Mitch Hurwitz implies as much in this recent interview with Fancast (via Collider):

So what of the rumors that new dad Will Arnett and shiny movie star Michael Cera are the only two remaining holdouts?

"I don’t want to talk about who is holding out right now because we might still work that out and I don’t want to pressure anyone through the press," said Hurwitz. "Although I will say that Will Arnett is gung-ho, so there’s a big clue!"

Does anyone else find this almost unbelievable? Cera has probably become the biggest star since the series ended, so I can see how he'd be more committed and might command a higher paycheck, but also this is Michael Cera we're talking about. He's played the same awkward pushover so many times I find it hard to believe he's not at least somewhat like that, and thus similarly weak-willed. Just get the rest of the cast to shout at him until he nervously gives in.
