“Arrested Development” fans, rejoice. Your fave TV show is becoming a movie.
That’s according to star Jeffrey Tambor (above) anyway, who yesterday told Steve Weintraub of collider.com that the much-rumored film is a go. Tambor said he talked to “AD” creator Mitch Hurwitz last week, who said it was on.
Tambor didn’t know any specifics about the project, but said that fans can be sure it’s happening.
“When the writer calls you, and the director, and the executive producer calls you, it’s a pretty good sign,” Tambor said in the interview, which you can watch for yourself at Collider.
Tambor said he’s looking forward to revisiting “Arrested Development” and his character, George Bluth Sr.
“We want to close that,” he said. “We want to bring that all to fruition.”
The show starred Tambor, Jason Bateman, Portia de Rossi, Will Arnett, Michael Cera, Tony Hale, David Cross and Jessica Walter, among others.
Hilary Duff is returning to TV, signing a pact with NBC to star in a new series.
Under terms of the one-year talent and development deal, Peacock will develop a show starring Duff; Duff will also be tapped to guest star in various current NBC shows.
Duff will meet with writers and comb through the Peacock’s development for the right project to star in.
Duff starred in a 2004 CBS pilot that wasn’t picked up to series; since then, she’s focused on her music and movie careers. The actress starred in this year’s “War, Inc.,” and will next be seen in the 2009 features “Safety Glass,” “Stay Cool” and “Greta.”
She first rose to fame as the star of the Disney Channel’s “Lizzie McGuire” (which later spawned “The Lizzie McGuire Movie”). She then appeared in features such as “Agent Cody Banks,” “Cheaper by the Dozen” and “Raise Your Voice.”
In signing Duff, NBC Entertainment exec VP Teri Weinberg cited the thespian’s “huge following” and versatility as a young talent. As a singer, Duff’s album “Metamorphosis” sold more than 2 million copies and spawned several hit singles.
