Call me the cynical addict, but the recent report about an ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT movie in the works couldn’t help but get this TV Addict thinking. Why exactly does Universal Studios want to spend millions of dollars on a movie based on a critically acclaimed yet highly unsuccessful television show. (Which rest assured, I’ll be first in line to see.)
Our theory. After the ridiculous success of SUPERBAD and JUNO, Universal wants to be in the Michael Cera business. And if backing up the Brinks truck for creator Mitch Hurwitz and his brilliant team of writers and actors is the quickest way to that so, well so be it.
Think I’m crazy? Wondering whether I’ve spent a few too many nights covered in blue paint? Check out this unconfirmed and not-at-all-fake advertising mock-up that may or may not have been leaked to theTVaddict.com.
