Bateman On “Hancock 2,” “Arrested”

Out doing PR for “Couples Retreat”, actor Jason Bateman tells Coming Soon that despite reports, “Hancock 2” is still a long way off and he may not be involved.

“No one has contacted me or anybody that represents me to ask if we were interested. I don’t know anything about it… The whole thing about me being on board could not be farther from the truth. I would love to be a part of the film, but I haven’t heard anything about it” says Bateman.

The film version of “Arrested Development” however is proceeding apace – “”It’s still being written and my guess is that is will be shot some time next year. I have a feeling that Mitch [Hurwitz] is halfway done writing it. We’ll probably shoot it middle of next year and then for however long things take to get cut and marketed, so maybe the first part of 2011 I would imagine. That’s just a guess.”
