The Change-Up actor told Digital Spy that Mitch Hurwitz's film spinoff will likely surpass the guest appearances from the TV show, which featured Charlize Theron, Ben Stiller and Liza Minnelli in cameo roles.
Bateman said: "From what I understand, the concept of the film will lend itself to quite a few really good cameos. I'm going to bring my autograph book."

Recent rumours have suggested that the Arrested Development movie will see Oscar-winning filmmaker Ron Howard, who narrated and produced the show, attempting to make a film based on the Bluth family.
Arrested Development ended in 2006 with Howard telling Maeby Fünke (Alia Shawkat) that he wanted to tell the Bluth's story on the big screen.
Asked to nominate his favourite line from David Cross's Arrested Development character Tobias Fünke, Bateman plumped for the never-nude's declaration of "I can just taste those leading man parts in my mouth".
