David Cross says Arrested Development film isn't happening

Once upon a time ago, ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT fans had a glimmer of hope that their favorite sitcom would get a movie.

Well, this news just takes that hope and throws it into the depths of movie hell.

David Cross, also known as Tobias "never nude" Funke, told TV Squad flat out that, "It's not going to happen." That certainly contradicts what Jason Bateman was saying back at the beginning of last month.

He went on to say, "It's not official, but I just don't think it's going to happen. Way too much time it's been (since the show ended). I mean, there's so many people involved. Everyone's doing their own thing, you know. And everybody's aged. It's just not going to happen. I'm sure I speak for everybody when I say we'd love for it to happen, we'd love to work on it, but just I don't think... not going to happen." Cross seems to think that it might fit better as a special, in the way of something like THE OFFICE UK finale.

Sadly, the project was doomed from the start. Again, this isn't anything official, just the realistic opinion of Cross. The actor ended on this note, "It would just feel, I don't know, it's hard to describe. But it's ah, it would feel strange and foreign to see these characters on a movie theater screen, I think."

Extra Tidbit: I'd settle for a television special, but I get the feeling that probably won't happen either.
