“Arrested Development” Starts Shooting in a Month
It’s happening. It’s really, really happening. Yes, I am absolutely doing a silly happy dance over this news!
Now I admit the fact that 10 new episodes of “Arrested Development” are in the works isn’t really news, but that doesn't mean I don't get a little more excited every time I get a glimmer of the new TV series (and possibly movie) actually becoming a reality.
With that being said, Jason Bateman just tweeted a big ol' nudge in the ribs. In addition to an awesome photo of him hanging out with Mitch Hurwitz and Ron Howard in “AD mission control,” he also informed us that “Arrested Development” will begin shooting in a month.
“All systems are go. Filming for the new episodes starts in four weeks. Woo!” he tweeted.
Ron Howard also offered a sneak peek into the writer’s room. The big question is, who’s going to blow up that image and try to make out some of the plot points written along the walls?
“Arrested Development for Netflix. IT’S ALIVE,” Howard tweeted. “This is what the writer’s room looks like.”
The plan is to have “Arrested Development” arrive on Netflix in one fell swoop at some point next year. Hopefully we’ll start seeing some pictures in the next month or so from the set. If there’s not at least one sighting of a man in a banana costume, the “Arrested Development” team is doing it wrong.
