There is no aspect of Arrested Development so perfect that creator Mitch Hurwitz does not think he can improve it, including the way Jason Bateman demonstrates his love to Michael Cera. Hurwitz is going over a red-penciled script, revised on the fly, for a scene in which Michael Bluth (Bateman) is on the verge of a confession to his son George-Michael (Cera). "I think what would be great here is a hug," Hurwitz says, putting his hands on Cera's shoulders, pulling him in and giving him a gentle peck on the cheek.Time Magazine

Jessica Walter on an Arrested Development movie "There wasn't a day when people wouldn't ask, 'My God, Arrested Development--are they going to make a movie?' They'd quote my lines. They'd quote lines I didn't even remember I had."
Ron Howard on Arrested Development and Mitch Hurwitz: "Mitch felt that Arrested Development has always been a bit of an experiment at heart, it was about taking chances. And there was something consistent with that in trying this Netflix model. There was this Arrested Development document on Mitch's computer. We'd be talking about ideas for Running Wilde, and Mitch would say, 'You know, that would be a great line for Michael [Bluth].' And he'd open that document. It was always there."
