Should be a solid movie, I was disappointed when they got rid of the show.

I wonder if they will star anyone different?

Interesting considering they tied up all the loose ends from the show, still I'm interested

Yeah, I read the other day that Jason Bateman confirmed there were talks ongoing to make a new movie. Great news. ;-D

It's been nice to see all these shows I used to like coming back from the dead (AD, Futurama, Family Guy from a few years ago).

This link is a little old now, but there's a nice couple paragraphs in there.

"I can confirm that a round of sniffing has started," Bateman says. "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."

Jeffrey Tambor also revealed on XM Radio's the Ron and Fez Show that he has been approached by Ron Howard to see if he's willing to do an Arrested film. (You can hear that interview below.)

For the record, both Jason and Jeffrey's answers were: Hells yeah. And I hear from other sources that other castmembers were called and that everyone seems to be very much on board and excited by the prospect.

Insiders also tell me that while creator Mitch Hurwitz does not yet have a script, he has a good, solid understanding of what he'd like to do for the movie, and Universal is very much interested.




And from a different interview with Micheal Cera...

“I’ve heard about that since the show was canceled, basically,” said Cera, who broke out earlier this year with “Superbad.” “I don’t want to get my hopes up — but it would be great, I would love to do that.
Sometimes it takes a crazy person to see the truth. If so, I'm a freaking lunatic.

2 weeks ago more concrete comments were made by Bateman, Cera, and Tambor. Sounds like a movie will definitley be made.

Will Arnett was just on Conan and once again stated the he and the rest of the cast were all in talks to do the movie. Sounds like it will be made official soon.
