(Newser) – The good news: Will Arnett is teaming back up with Arrested Development writer Mitch Hurwitz on a new TV show. The bad news: That show is one of the reasons the Arrested film is still held up, he tells the New York Daily News. But the “movie is definitely going to happen,” he says. His rep, apparently on a different page, claims “they are working on the movie simultaneously.”

“We're definitely not starting from page one” when it comes to the film, Arnett continues. “There are scripts in order,” and “I haven't heard that anyone isn't on board. Why wouldn't they be?”
