Cera Says No Arrested Development Movie, We Say No!

cast2 800x600 Cera Says No Arrested Development Movie, We Say No!Arrested Development fans, it looks like your $600 dollar banana suits are going to have to stay in the closet for a while longer.

Michael Cera, the once, and hopefully future, George-Michael Bluth, recently told an interviewer that if an Arrested Development movie is in the works, no one informed him. Mr. Cera even went so far as to question the artistic merit of producing a movie: "I don’t think I would want to see a movie of the series if I was a fan, anyway. And I don’t really see a need for it if you can get the three seasons on DVD."

This flies in the face of the news from earlier this year when Jason Bateman, while on the press tour for the under-rated Hancock, was telling anyone who would listen that not only was an Arrested Development movie in the works, but that everyone involved with the show, both on-screen and off, wanted to make the long-rumored movie happen.

We readily admit we are unabashed fans of Arrested Development and we can be heard quoting our favorite lines to friends at an alarming clip (our current favorite: "We just call it a sausage.") Heck, we even belong to a Facebook group devoted to the show (the joining of which, we can say, was far from a lifetime highpoint). So maybe we care more about this movie than the normal person does, but, we have to know: why all the back and forth teasing? Make the movie or don’t make the movie-just don’t leave us in limbo anxiously waiting for the day when we see the Bluth clan together again.
