Arrested Development On For 2012 Shoot?
Jason Bateman hopes so...

Last week, we got the chance to sit down with none other than Jason Bateman, the man still known to many as Michael Bluth, the "sane" one from Arrested Development. 

The interview was in honour of his latest film, The Change-Up, but as well as asking him about how purty Ryan Reynolds is in the flesh, we felt obliged to quiz him about the Arrested Development Movie despite him obviously being sick to the back teeth about being nagged about it.

Hey, we're big fans we couldn't help ourselves. Sorry about that, Jason.

Anyway, we cut out the questions and answers that related to the Arrested Development Movie and put them in a separate clip, and here it is below, just for you.

 

Now the most important part of his answer, as you might have guessed, was the shooting date: summer next year. But he also mentioned in other interviews that the film will be full of celebrity cameos.

"From what I understand, the concept of the film will lend itself to quite a few really good cameos," he told Digital Spy. "I'm going to bring my autograph book."

So here's the news in full: with any luck, the Arrested Development Movie will shoot next summer, and it'll be full of cameos from famous people. Got that? Lovely stuff.
