‘Arrested Development’ TV series and film to shoot his summer, confirms Will Arnett

Actor says filming on both projects will start soon

Filming on both the new series and big-screen adaptation of Arrested Development will start this summer, according to actor Will Arnett.

Arnett, who plays GOB Bluth in the celebrated US comedy show, told the Today show that they will start shooting both projects in the next few months.

He said:

We’re about to start making the Arrested Development miniseries and then right into the movie this summer.

It was confirmed late last year that the show would be returning, with a miniseries set to be broadcast on Netflix sometime next year. In February, actor David Cross – who portrayed eccentric therapist Tobias Funke – said he expected big things from the show’s return. “Based on what was described to me, it seems to be a very smart, original, interesting idea. I have high hopes for it,” he said.

Arrested Development was originally broadcast on US network Fox between 2003-06 and starred Jason Bateman and Michael Cera. Despite being critically acclaimed and winning six Emmy awards and one Golden Globe, the show was dropped after three seasons because of low ratings.
