Jason Bateman, who starred as Michael Bluth in the original Fox sitcom, had previously suggested Aniston for a part in the recently-confirmed film.
Bateman, who stars alongside the former Friends actress in forthcoming films The Switch and Horrible Bosses, told MTV News: "Yeah, actually, there's a real good part for her in the Arrested Development movie. I don't know, we'll see if she's available. She's busy. She's pretty famous. I don't know if you've heard of her.
"She's pretty backed up. Hopefully the guy who's in charge will like her for that part because I'm going to suggest her."
Aniston appeared to be keen on the idea, adding: "I love it. I actually think I might have asked [Jason]... if that was possible. Anything to work with Jason."
Bateman also revealed that there were no new details on the status of the project.
He said: "The truth is that there's really no significant update beyond... what [creator] Mitch Hurwitz said a couple of weeks ago, which was he's got half the script written. He's got to finish the second half and then the studio's got to love it and the cast's got to love it and we all have to... have time to do it."
