I have been waiting for the movie FOREVER. And will read any news in regards to this, You get some tidbits from former cast members sometimes in interviews, but it seems to drag on and on and on.
The 2 significant news I remember was early on it was ON but they couldn't get michael cera to get on it, and then that he was in, a looong bout of silence
and the most recent news was actually from a postsecret fb post (randomly) that said '"Arrested Development" just announced they will be coming back for one more TV season and then a movie. (source: The New Yorker)'
this TMZ article sums it up:http://www.tmz.com/2011/10/02/ar...
but it also says there's no deal in place, and this is the latest update on the wiki page, which seems to be the latest news on this:
"Revival of television series
The entire cast reunited for a panel at The New Yorker Festival in New York on October 2, 2011. At the panel, Hurwitz announced his intention of doing a truncated fourth season as a lead-in to the film, which would consist of 9–10 episodes each focusing on a single character At the event Hurwitz explained that Fox had not committed to producing any new episodes but would be involved in negotiations, as they continue to hold certain rights to the series. It has been reported that Showtime, as well as online streaming services Hulu and Netflix expressed interest in producing the show. In November 2011, Netflix was confirmed as the distributor of new episodes for an early 2013 debut. It is unclear whether this will be a truncated season as Hurwitz initially announced at the festival"
Sigh, i await eagerly!
