Arrested director & plot

Arrested Wars

Sick of hearing news about an ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT film that never actually happens? Well How 'bout if a director is onboard?  AND one who knows that stuff better than anyone?

A weekend event on "The Art of Storytelling" in Austin, Texas saw AD creator Michael Hurwitz and Opie himself Ron Howard confirm what most were expecting, that Hurwitz will be directing from his own script.

Also being tackled hard to divulge plot details, Hurwitz finally let out the tidbit that that there would be a heavy jail presence and then made jokes about the inclusion of TARP money, a nod to the inability of a film to be as timely as television due to lag times in production and release.

He also confessed he wanted a different style for the movie, but Howard insisted it remained the same, although writing for a feature is probably not the same as for a commercials-flanked 22-minutes sitcom.

I wish I had a killer quote from the show to finish this, but I haven't been the most faithful AD watcher I'm afraid... So who's got one?

Extra Tidbit: Haven't followed the show that much, but wasn't the prison thing over with in the finale?

"Look Franklyn and I said things that white people just weren't ready to hear."
"Didn't you and Franklyn get beaten up in front of the Apollo?"
"We said some things that black people weren't ready to hear either."

Ha-Za!

Gob: He doesn't know what he feels. I'm tired of being told - my God. What is this feeling?
Michael: You know, the feeling that you're feeling is just what many of us call... a "feeling".
Gob: It's not like envy, or even hungry.
Michael: Could it be love?
Gob: I know what an erection feels like, Michael. No, it's the opposite - it's like my heart is getting hard.

Who'd like a banger in the mouth? Right, I forgot, here in the States, you call it a *sausage* in the mouth.

"These are my awards, Mother, from Army. The seal is for marksmanship, and the gorilla is for sand racing".
reznorchrist is right though... you could pretty much add"michael" to the end of anything to make it AD-ish. this works also for "Come on!"

Killer Quote

You could simply write "MICHAEL!"

Or be wacky and change it to fit the story - "MITCHELL!"

Since that's the creator's actual name . . .

"Tobias, you blow hard!"

Hurwitz directing is great news! I am so excited that this is finally coming together! I have faith in Hurwitz and Howard that this will be as great as the show was.
