Orphans, smile, and be happy.

Slowly but surely, information is leaking in on the upcoming Arrested Development movie. This comes from Mitch Hurwitz, at a panel for his upcoming show, “Sit Down, Shut Up,” at this weekend’s WonderCon…

Here’s what’s going on with the movie. Everyone goes off and has careers and that kind of thing, so it’s been a little challenging to schedule everybody together, but everyone who has agreed to make this movie has agreed to make this movie, and we’re going to make the movie. I haven’t written it yet, so I’ll be accepting pitches. We’re determined to do this. It was a great joy and priviledge, all kidding aside, to do a show that took risks and with such a wonderful cast and wonderful writers. For us, it’s irresistible. Here’s an interesting thing about it. When we did the show, one of the things that really made it work is that we didn’t hold ourselves up to any standard. We got a lot of positive critical recommendations, but we even kind of ignored those and just did what was funny to us, and kind of remained the underdog in a great way. It was very clear early on that we weren’t going to be a big hit, so it really was a labor of love. Now suddenly, there is a bar to hit. I think the key to this is once we get as many pieces as we’re going to, which appears we have, we’ll just dive in and have fun and see if we can create the same thing. But we’re excited about it.

Cool, huh? Remember everyone, these next five years are going to go by quick!
