It seems that Michael Cera cannot wait longer to work on "Arrested Development". After wrapping the shooting for "Scott Pilgrim vs. the World", the actor's schedule is quite free and he is ready to shoot the movie adaption of the FOX's sitcom. "I think sometime next year, hopefully, we'll be shooting," Cera told MTV when he was interviewed on Thursday afternoon, December 17. "I hope [we'll shoot in 2010]. I think that's realistic."
Expressing his eagerness to team up with Jason Bateman, Portia de Rossi, Will Arnett, David Cross, and other members of Bluth family, Cera said, "I'm really excited to get to be around everyone again. It was so weird when the show was canceled. You're doing a TV show, and it feels like family, and then you're not doing it anymore." He then added, "It was a really strange thing to leave. I'm excited to be around them all again."
Of all the actors on "Arrested Development", Cera apparently is very excited to reunite with Alia Shawkat who portrayed his cousin, friend, and possible lover in the TV series. "I'm excited to get to work with her again," he said of the 20-year-old actress. "I'm pretty sure it will happen."
The television version of "Arrested Development" revolves around the members of Bluth family with the relatively honorable Michael Bluth as the center of attention. While he strives to do the right thing and keep his family together, his family delves in materialism, selfishness, and their manipulative natures.
As for the big-screen version, Mitchell Hurwitz is set to direct as well as write the script. The comedy movie is scheduled to be released in 2011.
