It's been talked about before, but now Jason Bateman and Jeffrey Tambor have both confirmed that contact has been made regarding a much-desired Arrested Development feature. Quoth the Bateman:
I can confirm that a round of sniffing has started. Any talk is targeting a poststrike situation, of course. I think, as always, that it's a question of whether the people with the money are willing to give our leader, Mitch Hurwitz, what he deserves for his participation. And I can speak for the cast when I say our fingers are crossed.
This made my day. Not only is it a possible revival of one of television's best comedies, it's one more television-to-film adaptation that won't be beaten senseless and covered in "white face" by the Wayans Brothers. We've reached the sad point where that alone deserves some applause.
