Cera on Development

09.04.2008
At the tail end of an interview with the National Post, Michael Cera spoke of his absolute lack of interest in making an Arrested Development movie:

"I don't think I would want to see a movie of the series if I was a fan, anyway... And I don't really see a need for it if you can get the three seasons on DVD."

But hey, I know what's going on here. This asshole's next assignment is to play Mary Elizabeth Winstead's love interest in SCOTT PILGRIM VS. THE WORLD, so it would make sense he wouldn't want to think about anything else. If I heard I was gonna get to mack on that chick I'm pretty sure I'd have difficulty controlling my bodily fluids, or recognizing my parents.

I like Cera BECAUSE of AD; I bought "Superbad" because of Cera BECAUSE of AD. I hated "Superbad"; didn't even watch half an hour of it. Still like Cera... but only because of AD. My point is, he only has cred with me because of AD. If he's not up for more AD, then he'd have to work to get on my good list again. Basically, I guess I only know and like George Michael Bluth; I don't know Michael Cera. Michael Cera, who?

Doesn't matter. I'd love to see him in the movie, but if he's not

Doesn't matter. I'd love to see him in the movie, but if he's not there, oh well. I want the movie. I want more AD! We were short-changed by the network, and I am not QUITE satisfied with the truncated three seasons. Oh I LOVE what we got (watched through them, something like five times so far; and they are still funnier in their fifth viewing than anything else on TV); but if they've got more story to tell, then I want to see it! Cera or no Cera.

there is no need for an Arrested Development movie...the kid is right...The show was AWESOME, and, although canceled too early, it was completed correctly and closed the story...adding another chapter doesn't make sense

being that he and bateman have both spoken several times on their enthusiasm to do the flick I really can't see this being 100% accurate

Wow, I am shocked. All I had heard about this project (from Jason Bateman, Mitch Hurwitz, and even Jeffrey Tambor) has to been so positive and chomping at the bit to start. Never thought I'd say this, but fuck Michael Cera (typecast actor anyone?)

I love Arrested Development and think it's clearly one of the funniest shows in history, but Michael Cera is not an asshole. That kid is gold. GOLD GODDAMMIT!

he obviously has no idea what his fans want

I would kill for an AD movie. But he needs to get a little chunkier for the role because in the show he was a little bigger than the toothpick that he is and he probably does not like that.

Screw Cera!

I bet he heard them talk about the movie, and the fact that they are probably gonna do a prequel to the show. There would be no part for him and he got pissy. Now he acts like there shouldn't be a movie. Of course there should! And a prequel is the best way to go. Doesn't demand knowledge of the show, but will reward those who do have it. Maybe Michael's wife can be in it, and it can become a drama at the end. LOL.

Don't think it's just dry humor; it sounds more like the aforementioned Heigl syndrome.

I'm just gonna keep posting so this gets more red boxes. I WANT THIS FUCKING MOVIE.

Dude, I"m from the midwest and we totally love A.D. I don't know if you thought we spent our time cow-tipping or something but basically several people I know would be there opening night.

The south? Who the heck knows but here in the midwest we love ourselves some A.D.

STEVE HOLT!!!

HERE'S MY ONE RULE.

AND TONIGHT OR ANY OTHER NIGHT, I'M NOT GONNA BREAK IT:

Everyone from Arrested Development's main cast, more or less, has the AD pass with me. This allows them to get away with anything. Like, Bateman can get away with the abortion that was Hancock, etc., etc. Basically, whenever I watch anything with them, I just feel like their character did a crossover into another universe.

Yes, I make stuff up in my head to feel better.

Anyway, I just made a new rule and if any of them start

Anyway, I just made a new rule and if any of them start getting in the way of the manna from heaven known as MORE AD, the pass gets revoked. WTF CERA YOU'RE THIS CLOSE TO LOSING IT.

i kind of understand where he 's coming from; i mean how many great TV shows actually transfer well into movies. besides it's been over three years since the show last aired and it barely could maintain a mainstream audience (folks who live in the Midwest & South). cera does come off as being arrogant in the quote, perhaps its out of context or his canadian dry humor doesnt transfer well in print .

Cera is wrong... Dead Wrong

Apparently the man has no idea what AD fans want. And he's one of my favorite actors, but this comment and Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist (okay, mainly Nick And Nora) could cost him a bit in my book.

i get the feeling

I get the feeling you would need to see him saying this on a video or something. Like this may just be a joke that doesnt translate well to text. At least I hope that is the case. But if this project falls through because of this guy, consider me boycotting the rest of his films for life.

That saddens me a little bit. I loved Arrested Development and enjoy Cera's awkwardness in everything he does. TV shows have a hard time translating to the big screen but I for one would absolutely love it.

i would like to see a movie of AD, but only if involves ALL of the original cast members, and if they actually would enjoy doing it. it seems like they had a lot of fun on the series, so if Cera has no interest in doing the movie, then it shouldn't happen. it should only happen if everyone is up for it.
