It looks like the dysfunctional Bluth family really are headed to the big screen. Jason Batemen confirms that a script for the "Arrested Development" movie is currently being written and the storyline is "incredible."
Rumors of an "Arrested Development" film have been swirling ever since the Fox series was canceled in 2006. Bateman tells MTV News that show creator Mitchell Hurwitz is currently at work on the script and the two have discussed the plot points.
"For the very first time, [Hurwitz] sat me down last week to talk about what he's got and where he's going and what do I think," says Bateman, whose co-stars on the quirky comedy included Michael Cera, Portia de Rossi and Will Arnett. "As a fan of the show, I was vibrating with excitement that he was pulling me behind the curtain."
While Bateman remains mum on plot details, he is happy to reveal that "Arrested Development" fans won't be disappointed.
"It's everything you would want it to be and more," he says. "I really hope [Hurwitz] finishes soon so we have a shot at doing it before the end of the year."

We are excited about this movie. Such an incredible show!
I just let a stinker. Shoooo it stinks. : )
That boy is C U T I E cutie pie! I would shine his knob for hours.
no it wont. an arrested development movie is going to be stoopid. it really will be not good. why dont we make a happy days movie or family ties movie. this is just dumb. i bet they do not make enough money to even cover the production cost. i wouldnt invest 1 cent in it and i am a smellly mexikin.
They've been talking about this for five years. As a screenplay has yet to be completed, this is yet another tease! I have very little faith this will ever come to fruition.
YES!!! means I might have a job waiting for me.
Kevin...would you like to walk in the park with me holding hands? We could disappear into the woods and you could then introduce me to your "chubby".
Stop toying with my emotions, Michael!
This show will stink and degenerate into nothing more than a coming out party.
this will be amazing. Glad Cera finally got on board.
Kevin. I think you are cute and would love to shower with you. Kiss me baby.
CANT WAIT!!!! -That's for you Bart Scott.
But this movie will be outstanding. Still cant understand why such an awesome was canceled, especially considering all the garbage on TV
Jason Bateman gets more adorable the older he gets. And he's funny and charming and talented.
