Limber up and start practicing your Chicken Dance people! Executive producer and creator Mitch Hurwitz confirmed with Rolling Stone yesterday, that the much anticipated “Arrested Development” movie received the green-light!


Rumors of a possible full-length Arrested Development film circulated after the possibility was referenced in season 3’s final episode

Hurwitz says in the interview:

“I’m working on the movie right now,”

“I can’t get into much more detail because I don’t want to scare anybody off. I don’t want to be presumptuous about it. I don’t own the property outright – it’s a 20th Century Fox property. But everybody seems really into it and really eager to make a movie.”

Getting everyone together to shoot the film is the biggest challenge according to Hurwitz, it was challenging enough to finish season 4, he explains:

“A TV season is a six-month commitment,”

“But I think it would be very doable to get them together for four or five weeks to make a movie.”

Awesome! Now that we have finally received confirmation, when can we expect a release date?

Hurwitz says:

“as soon as possible.”

“But I want to be very careful about not putting out false information. I want to get a time and tell everybody when it’s happening and not play with people,”

We will definitely mark our calendars for the release date when announced, GeekShizzle will keep you posted.
