An inevitable (arrested) development?

Rumors have been swirling -- here and elsewhere -- about a possible "Arrested Development" movie. It's an interesting wrinkle for a show that never found an audience on Fox even though it had some awards cachet and was critically revered to the point of exhaustion.

So what would the movie premise be? Well, according to the caged wisdom of Jeffrey Tambor, who played George Bluth Sr., the script hasn't been written. But it appears all cast members are just waiting for the green light to start working.

According to an interview with the AV Club:

"There are rumors that it's going to be done, and everyone just seems to be waiting for the other shoe to drop. I'm ready, and everyone's on board, so I hope it really happens. Everybody I talk to is very excited about it. When I talk to people that decry that we're not on, I say, "You know, there are rumors, heavy rumors going around that there's going to be a movie." And they go crazy. A lot of "hurrahs" going on. But I know it's not written. Right now, it's just pure intention. But I think it will happen if the good people at Fox and everybody else just gets their act together."

You hear that? HEAVY rumors! C'mon good people at Fox! Now that "American Idol" is over, you have nothing better to do. Make it happen.

So, any ideas on what the Bluth family should do on the big screen? George Sr. building homes for Mahmoud Ahmadinejad? Steve Holt takes up the family trade and becomes a magician, sorry, illusionist? How about just airing Les Cousins Dangereux in its uncensored, scandalous form?

Man, I need me a trip to the Big Yellow Joint ...

I would seriously turn some illusions for money if it helped get this movie made.
