    The greatest TV show ever definitely deserves a movie after the mother****ers at FOX cancelled it....

    Showtime technically pulled it. They wanted him to be the showrunner but Hurwitz wanted a someone else to takeover and so Showtime said only with Hurwitz will they pick up 26 episodes.

    There is the AD thread in TV Series but this is the first movie one.

    After the strike and once "White Hot", Arnett and Bateman have time I'm sure they'll get around to it.

    I would love it to return in any form. If they do a movie I hope it's like 4 episodes tied together so we'll get pauses and "Last time on Arrested Development" then we'll see a mix of stuff that happened and stuff that didn't happen.

    I'm greedy, I would love it to come back as a weekly show running an hour and maybe on a premium channel so they can have swearing and nudity. Common, a show with two never-nudes? LOL!

    ^That would be awesome, but a movie would be an awesome substitute. as long as it's rated R.

    We all know Fox are a bunch of morons over there. They like to cancel the good shows and keep the bad ones. I guess we are all lucky that The Simpsons, King Of The Hill and 24 are still around. Never know when they'll up and cancel something for no good reason ... like Family Guy and Futurama.

    There should be a whole channel made of of shows Fox didn't want but turned into hits.

    Hopefully, but I'm not holding my breath.

    and I know it was Fox who canceled it and all, but you have to atleast give them kudos for hanging on to it for three seasons. (I wish it had atleast been three full seasons) but it did get an ending. Considering how Fox treats other shows I' d say it was pretty remarkable, especially since it got poor ratings. The main complaint against Fox I have is failing to promote it well.

    No they did not promote it well. It was on for a year before I knew about it.

    The Office is way better than AD ever could have been. Though AD is more suited for a film. The only question is whether or not they'll be able to make it so that it is accessible to people who never watched the show.

    This will be just for the fans IMO. And that's alright by me :D

    I think that they will attempt to do something new but hopefully still have the callbacks and in jokes that really made AD. The writers were great at rewarding the fans with that type of thing.

    **** yes, and there's a strong chance it wouldn't bomb, I mean I doubt the movie would have much more production value then the show did.

    Of course if they promote it in the same way they did the show....

    The fanbase has grown and Cera, Arnett and Bateman are bigger stars now then they were during the run. Plus there will probably be a celebrity cameo or too. And the budget couldn't be that big. The running time will probably equal four or five episodes.

    :whatever:
