The Arrested Development movie has been in the works for ages and ages (and ages), and much like Dance of Dragons, I won’t really believe it’s happening until I’m actually sitting in a movie theater watching the credits roll. But there have been some interesting rumors flying around, like ScreenRant’s highly dubious scoop from an unnamed source who claims to have talked to an unnamed person involved in the movie in an unknown capacity. This person suggests that the plot may run thusly:
Ron Howard is making a movie about the Bluths using an A-List cast. But Dr. Tobias plays himself because nobody wants to play him in the movie. The Bluths decide to make their own movie in contention with Ron Howard’s.
Am I skeptical about the source? Yes. Do I think this would be a great great storyline? HELLS YES! It has a delightfully Tristam Shandy-esque intricacy of plot and the opportunity for more cameos than It’s a Mad Mad Mad Mad World, which I believe holds the record for most cameos ever. So in honor of this probably bogus development, I’ve put together a roundup of cool Arrested Development stuff. And I shall lead off with something I’ve shown you before Puffin, the Arrested Development version of Clue! Go over to Pleated Jeans to see the game board, the suspects, the murder weapons, etc.
Shirtoid has a bunch of great Arrested Development shirts. Like this one of the Bluth family crest. Or the Blues Brothers mashup. I think that one is an especially good idea. Their #1 hit would of course be a cover of Divinyl’s I Touch Myself reworded as I Blue Myself.
Kyle Hilton has done a great series of Arrested Development paper dolls. I do think it’s a little unfair that Tobias gets two sets and Oscar gets ignored. No one loves Oscar. It’s very sad.
And finally, it wouldn’t be a roundup without something from Bill Mudron, the genius behind the art deco Doctor Who posters, the Mucha Amy Pond, and the Madam Vastra slaughtering cybermen print, which I need to purchase for my mother’s birthday. Anyway, this is a Peanuts/Arrested Development mashup. Follow the link for purchase info.
