It turns out it’s possible to get the cast of Arrested Development to reunite, or at least reunite for one evening. Gothamist [via The Playlist] reports that Will Arnett, Jason Bateman, Michael Cera, David Cross, Portia de Rossi, Tony Hale, Alia Shawkat, Jeffrey Tambor, and Jessica Walter will take the stage with Arrested Development creator Mitch Hurwitz on October 2nd for a special panel. I’m sure they’ll talk about free trade agreements, the philosophical merits of Kant and Heidegger, and other topics. I doubt anyone will bring up the Arrested Development movie. Who wants to hear about that?
In all seriousness, wouldn’t it be awesome if this is how they chose to announce that the film has a greenlight and firm start date? It’s a bit of a long shot, but either way, you’d be crazy not to try and get into this event. Tickets go on sale tomorrow at noon. Unfortunately, there’s no discount if you blue yourself.
