Mitch Hurwitz, the creator of the acclaimed sitcom “Arrested Development”, indicated to Fancast this week that at least one cast member of the show is holding out on the idea of the movie.
Asked about rumors that both Will Arnett (“Blades of Glory”) and Michael Cera (“Superbad”) are the lone hold outs, Hurwitz says “I don’t want to talk about who is holding out right now because we might still work that out and I don’t want to pressure anyone through the press…Although I will say that Will Arnett is gung-ho, so there’s a big clue.”
He also admits that because this is for the fans, the budget will be quite limited – “The fans have been so sincere in their fondness for it. That’s really the big motivation to make the film. it’s not like it’s going to pay very much! it’s a really low budget film.”
