David Cross on ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT movie: "It's not going to happen"

Well this isn't good. Last month we heard that the AD movie has been pushed back due to a new sitcom Will Arnett and series creator Mitch Hurwitz are creating. This was particularly disheartening because, for the first time, all signs pointed toward a movie being made, and soon. Michael Cera even signed on.

Now we get more bad news. Speaking with TV Squad, Cross said "It's not going to happen."

I think what I will tell you, it's not going to happen. It's not official, but I just don't think it's going to happen. Way too much time it's been (since the show ended). I mean, there's so many people involved. Everyone's doing their own thing, you know. And everybody's aged. It's just not going to happen. I'm sure I speak for everybody when I say we'd love for it to happen, we'd love to work on it, but just I don't think... not going to happen.

When asked if he'd like to see a reunion, Cross said yes, but on TV.

It would be great to do it on TV. Like kind of what they do in Britain. If they have a successful show, the comedy shows at least, they'll have a Christmas special. The actors and writers will all get together and you know, create a one-off kind of Christmas special thing.

Successful British shows like The Office and Extras tend to come back and have a big special. British shows like these also tend to last only a couple seasons. The Office, for example, only has two six episode seasons. What do you think? Should we leave Arrested Development alone? I don't think it's too late yet, but they'd have to work the time gap into the script. Thanks to /Film for the link.
