Jason Bateman an Michael Cera in Arrested DevelopmentPretty much since the day after it was canceled in 2006, the criminally underseen Fox sitcom 'Arrested Development' has had fans lobbying for, pining for, dreaming about and generally doing everything but sell their souls to secure the making of a feature feature film about the wonderfully idiosyncratic, surprisingly endearing Bluth family. Well, their dream has now taken a huge leap toward reality.

Earlier this year, the show's principal cast members -- Jason Bateman, Portia de Rossi, Will Arnett, Alia Shawkat, Jeffrey Tambor, Tony Hale, David Cross, Jessica Walter and even the elusive Michael Cera (long rumored to be the final holdout) -- confirmed that they'd reprise their roles for a film if creator Mitch Hurwitz could crank out a script everyone loved. With Hurwitz's busy schedule -- he was working on the animated sitcom 'Sit Down, Shut Up' at the time, and is now prepping a new series for Arnett -- that was a big "if" ... until now.
