Zach Galifianakis wasn't the only comedy titan making news at the New Yorker Festival over the weekend
. On Sunday, the cast of 'Arrested Development' and creator Mitch Hurwitz sat down with New Yorker television critic Nancy Franklin to discuss their beloved series, and when talk turned to the long-rumored feature film version, Hurwitz had an update. "We're 80 percent of the way to an answer," he said, before revealing that there are also plans to do a short-run television series to catch fans up on the lives of the Bluth clan during the last five years. All that needs to happen now is some studio cooperation and the usual cutting of red tape. Said star Jason Bateman: "There's business left to be done, but creatively we are all on board and have a very specific plan about how it would come out and what we would do and when we would shoot it. I think we're targeting next summer to shoot it." Later, Bateman tweeted that the film could get released in early 2013. As for the limited-run series, Deadline reports that Showtime and/or Netflix could be interested. Don't hold your breath or anything, but feel free to dance like a chicken as soon as possible.
