Details are slim, but it’s obviously early days. Arrested Development’s producer Brian Grazer has told Bloomberg that negotiation are underway for Netflix to get another run of the show.
We are in conversations with them to do another. They are interested in doing that.
Where will this leave the movie? We’ve had it pitched to us that this recent Netflix series was “act one” and a film would wrap up acts two and three.
I suppose the movie is going to be left carrying just act three now.
I understand that there was a lot of fancy editing and even green screen trickery required to get the cast on screen together for the last run. These are busy, popular people. Could we see some opt out of the next series altogether? Might that kill the plans? Or could we all just be left waiting for years?
Incidentally, Netflix made their other comedy series, Orange Is The New Black, available today and it’s very good. Perhaps this video will give you some clues as to how and why.
