The rumors appear to have given way to fact: an Arrested Development movie is on the way!
E! Online reports that producers Mitch Hurwitz and Ron Howard have signed deals to do produce a film with Imagine and Fox Searchlight studios; a budget of $15 million has already been approved.
"Yes, it's a go," said an anonymous cast member "We're all very excited. And it will happen with or without the holdout."
Yes, there's a holdout, as one of the show's original cast members has not signed on to the film yet. We have a pretty clear idea who that is. Still:
"I do know that we will do the project with or without [him or her]," said the aforementioned co-star, who would not name the individual in question at this time.
