David Cross says “Arrested Development” movie idea is “great”


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Another day, another “Arrested Development” rumor.

This one comes to us from “Development” ensemble member David Cross, who talked about the potential of an “AD” movie during this weekend’s “Megamind” premiere in Los Angeles. Cross lends his voice to the character of Minion, a fish in a gorilla suit who helps Will Ferrell’s Megamind with his evil plots.

”I have not seen a script,” Cross told EW.com. “I know the story they’ve got in mind, and it is great. I think it is [a] perfect continuance of the Bluths, although I cannot say anything. I know the outline is done.”

Of course, Cross also told reporters and fans last April that an “Arrested Development” movie is “just not going to happen.” And despite these recent comments, I still believe him. Too many figurative “stars” need to align before the rumored “AD” movie gets off the ground. And too many literal stars – from Cross and Will Arnett to Michael Cera and Jeffrey Tambor – would need to synch their busy schedules to make this happen.

What do you think? Will an “Arrested Development” film happen? Has too much time passed? Has the window of interest closed? Was it ever really open? The “AD” movie is one of those myths that I won’t fully believe until it finally opens in theaters. Until then, folks like Cross, Arnett and the rest of the former cast members can look forward to questions about its potential on red carpets for years to come.
