Cera "holding out" on 'Arrested' film

Rex Features

Michael Cera is reportedly "holding out" on starring in the Arrested Development movie.

A film version of the critically acclaimed US sitcom, which ran on Fox from 2003 to 2006, was recently confirmed with show creator Mitch Hurwitz directing and Ron Howard producing.

When asked in an interview with Fancast if Will Arnett and Cera would return for the forthcoming film, Hurwitz replied: "I don't want to talk about who is holding out right now because we might still work that out and I don't want to pressure anyone through the press.

"Although I will say that Will Arnett is gung-ho, so there's a big clue!"

Commenting on a possible storyline for the feature film, he added: "I think in some respect it would have to pick up where the show left off. Maybe the benefit of that would be, if nothing else, just to recap everything.

"There are a couple of ways to get into it. I was even thinking about a big animated sequence to start. Kind of like how the Blake Edwards movies used to start - to kind of catch everyone up."
