Filmmaker Ron Howard visited G4 network’s "Attack of the Show" on Monday to discuss the promised “Arrested Development” episodes and movie, and was sure to emphasize what creator Mitchell Hurwitz noted about the business hurdles.
“Arrested Development” producer and narrator Howard did confirm that Hurwitz is working on a screenplay, but added that details still need to be put in place.
"Everybody at every studio and company is very supportive of the idea, but there's much to be worked out," Howard said.
Over the weekend, Hurwitz announced new episodes and a movie at the New Yorker Festival, sparking an Internet fan frenzy. The cast, Howard confirms, is “totally behind the idea.”
But when the show's host asks, “So the series starts in fall 2012 and the movie in 2013? Just wink once –,” Howard joked, “Whatever you say!”
Tune in to “Attack of the Show!” on G4 this Thursday at 7 p.m. to watch the full interview with Ron Howard.
