I personally can’t wait for the Arrested Development movie. The show was so brilliant, it needs to be revived. Although for one reason or another, the movie seems to be be lagging. Not long ago executive producer Mitch Hurwitz basically blamed Michael Cera for the hold-up, but now Michael Cera sets the rumors straight on why the movie is not getting off the ground.
Just to catch you all up to speed, Hurwitz had stated:
So what of the rumors that new dad Will Arnett and shiny movie star Michael Cera are the only two remaining holdouts?
“I don’t want to talk about who is holding out right now because we might still work that out and I don’t want to pressure anyone through the press,” said Hurwitz. “Although I will say that Will Arnett is gung-ho, so there’s a big clue!”
It appears that the movie is far more up in the air than we all thought. Cera, as we all know, has and extremely dry and yet amazing sense of humor. He is known for being rather candid in interviews because… well, why not!?
Recently in an interview with MTV Movie Blogs he talked about how there wasn’t even a script yet…
“The movie is more hypothetical than people think,” Cera explained. When asked whether he would like to play the part of George Michael Bluth again, Cera deadpanned and said, “I’d possibly like to play the part. I’d possibly like to put the script in my shredder.”
Cera was very quick to add that he would be interested in seeing the story. Check out the video of Cera’s interview below…
Undoubtedly some people will take his comment the wrong way, but they really shouldn’t. What has he done wrong here? He wants to read the script before signing off. That just sounds like a smart career move and why Cera has been in so many GOOD comedies over the past few years and not all the horrible ones that have come out.
Sounds to me like he’s just being honest and smart. We back you Cera! You read that script!
What do you think about what Cera said? Is he being a diva or making sense?
