Arrested Development movie rumors

Talks of a potential movie featuring the dysfunctional Bluth family first started even before the show's finale aired. However, nothing really officially had been done about it until recently. This past week, rumors of an Arrested Development feature movie have resumed but, this time, it is the cast talking!
Kristin Dos Santos from E! Online confirms that the cast members were asked by the show's producers if they would be willing to star in the motion picture. AD's leading man, Jason Bateman, confirmed to the gossip columnist that preliminary talks had begun. Elsewhere, Jeffrey Tambor admitted on the Ron and Fez Show on XM Radio that he was approached by Ron Howard to see if he was willing to reprise his role(s).
Dos Santos' sources also revealed that no script has been written yet but that creator Mitch Hurwitz has a good idea of what he wants the movie to be like. Supposedly, Universal is interested in the feature and all cast members seem to have agreed to reprise their roles.
Being a huge fan of Arrested Development, I sure hope this movie happens. This one-of-a-kind comedy not only featured an amazing cast but also was cleverly written and contained tons of easter eggs. I hope the movie includes and/or mentions the Alliance of Magicians, Charlie Brown, Dr. Fünke's 100% Natural Good-Time Family-Band Solution, Steve Holt, "no touching," never nudes, Hot Cops, etc.
Rest assured that TV Squad will keep you updated on the movie's development and, if/when it starts shooting, spoilers.
