Rein it all in, everyone.

Not that this comes as any true surprise to those able to understand the secret, hopeful language of celebrity press appearances, but according to Entertainment Weekly there is no script and no deal in place for an Arrested Development movie.

And just because I can, let me be the one here to say ‘good’. Everyone always wants to get the band back together, and I understand the impulse. But without having read the script that doesn’t exist, my plea is to leave it as only an impulse. Let it rest as it does already — a perfect, unexpected anomaly — and allow everyone to move on.

(Of course, this hardly means that a movie won’t happen. Combined fervent wishes might be enough to move a few of the beads on the giant abacus that pulses as the heart of Fox. Should such a thing happen, the light could still go green.)
