Arrested DevelopmentCould the mythical 'Arrested Development' movie get off the ground and make it to a theater near you this year? That's what creator Mitch Hurwitz seems to think.

In an interview with Digital Spy, Hurwitz said the movie plans are in motion.

"We've started that process and it is our sincere hope to shoot it this year and get it out this year," Hurwitz said. "That's what we're hoping, but a lot of things have to fall into place for that to happen."

That's what we've been hoping for years, Mitch. For now, let's just file this as another chapter in the ongoing saga of a movie that will probably never get made.

Bring back "24". There is still alot for Jack to take care of. He can take care of some of the politicians in office and uncover some "real" truths.

Nobody cares about an Arrested Development movie anymore. Not to mention, on repeated viewing (on IFC) the show doesn't hold up well at all.

NBC so far looks like they have two good shows planned.

This is awesome news! I just finished watching the series off my Netflix app on my Logitech Revue with Google TV (I'm a DISH employee and customer) and when I was finished I just hit a button and jumped from TV to Internet and was looking around for news on the movie! It's not as solid as I'd like, but it's awesome none the less! Thanks!

Call me crazy, but with NBC cancelling Chase and struggling with their rating already--not to mention, desperately trying to persuade Mariska Harigtay and Chris Meloni to resign--I think it would be in their best interest to focus on improving their already-established shows before adding two new ones.

Hurrah for progress on Arrested Development! And Desperate Housewives should have an endgame.
