I broke my own rules this week when I reported on Jeffrey Tambor and later Ron Howard saying the Arrested Development movie was go for launch.  As positive as they sounded, Jeffrey Tambor is an actor and Ron Howard is a former child actor, so between them they have all the credibility of a schizophrenic crack whore. However, The Hollywood Reporter is now reporting that both Howard and director Mitch Hurwitz have reached deals with Imagine and Fox Searchlight, so it’s with a fair degree of certainty that we can say an Arrested Development movie will happen.

Now, let us never speak of this again.  At least until a trailer comes out, at which point our avatars can have a heated discussion about how they took a good show and bukkake’d all over its corpse, and their families should all be raped to death by syphilitic hyenas.  This is an outrage!  What will I do with these Handi-Snacks now that I’ve lost my appetite?
