That Ron Howard sure is a happy, chatty guy. Speaking to Maxim while doing press for Frost/Nixon Howard got positively bubbly when the topic of an Arrested Development movie was broached. (Or perhaps he’d been bubbly the whole time; I’ve only seen this clip.)
Basically, Howard says it’s ‘looking very promising’, but admits there’s no script. Howard is under the impression that Hurwitz has the time and energy to make it happen, and says ‘the studio is interested’. All of which adds up to the big fat ball of ‘maybe’ that has been rolling around for months like it has a little prince of the cosmos keeping it in motion. Roll up David Cross next, little prince! I bet he’ll scream with gusto.
