In an interview with TV Squad Cross had this to say:
“(I)t’s not going to happen,” Cross told me the other day when I spoke to him about his new stand-up special, ‘David Cross: Bigger and Blackerer,’ which premieres on the new cable channel Epix on Saturday (Friday night) at midnight ET.
“Way too much time it’s been (since the show ended),” he told me. “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.”
I’m sure anyone reading a story about Arrested Development already knows this, but David Cross played Tobias Fünke on the cult hit that lasted only 3 seasons despite being loved by critics and anyone with a functioning brain and sense of humor. The movie has been talked about since the show got canceled but nothing ever comes of it.
As much as I’d like to see an Arrested Development movie, at this point I’d just like to know for sure one way or the other. Shit or get off the pot people. You are upsetting all the diehard fanboys.
