Back in May, just before Season 4 of Arrested Development debuted, Netflix's Reed Hastings hinted that the streaming company may pick up the long-awaited Arrested Development movie as well. During a recent interview, series creator Mitchell Hurwitz revealed he is currently working on the movie.
The Arrested Development movie may come before Season 5
"I'm working on the movie right now. I can't get into much more detail because I don't want to scare anybody off. I don't want to be presumptuous about it. I don't own the property outright - it's a 20th Century Fox property. But everybody seems really into it and really eager to make a movie. A TV season is a six-month commitment. But I think it would be very doable to get them together for four or five weeks to make a movie."
Mitchell Hurwitz also revealed that he currently plans to shoot the movie before making another season of the show for Netflix.
"I'm hoping it happens as soon as possible. But I want to be very careful about not putting out false information. I want to get a time and tell everybody when it's happening and not play with people. Right now, I'm trying to do something else for Netflix and a movie project and things. I'm always sort of superstitious about talking about this stuff before it happens. It's the best way to guarantee it doesn't happen. The whole thing is sort of unprecedented. It's always been its own little thing. I kind of feel like the more it stays original, the better chance it has. As soon as it goes back to trying to do exactly what it was before, you run the risk of doing a reunion show or something."
