Showtime & Netflix Currently Vying For The Rights To Season 4The "Arrested Development" movie is the great white whale of internet fandom of the past few years. Originally airing in 2003, Mitchell Hurwitz's Fox sitcom has, over the years, enshrined its place as one of the great comedy series of all time, despite being canceled after three seasons. As the show's cast, which included Jason Bateman, Michael Cera, Will Arnett and David Cross, went on to bigger things, the cult grew and grew, and rumors began to circulate that Hurwitz and the show's producer/narrator Ron Howard were planning to reunite the Bluths for a big-screen adventure.

While it has been five years since Fox pulled the plug and "Arrested Development" went off the air, rumors of a potential movie have been rampant, but Hollywood (and series creator and writer Mitch Hurwitz) has so far been unable to wrangle everybody back together for one more story with the Bluth family. The monocle-wearing organizers of The New Yorker Festival, however have managed to do what no one else has been able to do since 2006: get the entire cast back together in one place at the same time.

Actress Stays Mum On 'The Dark Knight Rises,' But Says 'The Three Musketeers' "Fulfills A Childhood Fantasy"Youthful British actress Juno Temple has been turning heads for a few years now, in films from "Atonement" to Gregg Araki's "Kaboom," even coming out of the disastrous comedy "Year One" smelling of roses. We've had our eye on her for a while, but even we weren't prepared for how good she turned out to be in William Friedkin's "Killer Joe."

There was a while back there when rumors of an "Arrested Development" movie were numerous, but mostly added up to much ado about nothing. Every detail that emerged from the mouths of cast members sounded like wishful thinking -- a lot of talk about the script being written by 'AD' creator Mitchell Hurtwitz, but no discussion about shooting, releasing, directing or any concrete plans for the production of the movie. Hurwitz continued to focus on television for the most part but both "Sit Down, Shut Up" and "Running Wilde" were canceled by Fox, freeing up his time. And while all cast members have gone on to success after the show's three seasons, none have threatened to go supernova, leaving them in the realm of possibility to return. It seems clear: destiny wants this film to happen.

Now here's an interesting project that is newly on our radar thanks to Cannes. Just last week, we learned that Michael Cera would join "The Maid" director Sebastian Silva for a thriller called "Magic Magic." Variety reported yesterday that three lovely ladies -- Juno Temple, Emily Browning and Catalina Sandino Moreno -- will be on hand to work with him. All we know about the film so far is that a girl vacationing with her friends in Chile slowly starts to lose her mind. It's not been made clear who will be taking the lead role, but judging from the billing and her rising star status, it's more than likely going to be Temple.

A frequent though somewhat unfair criticism leveled at Michael Cera is that he always plays the same George Michael Bluth-esque role that made him popular in "Arrested Development." Although, those haters seemed to conveniently overlook that he side-stepped that persona with ease as the much more suave and badass Francois Dillinger in the underrated "Youth In Revolt." Well, no matter, because Cera's next gig is going to be straight 180-degree turn from anything you've seen in him in before.

EXCLUSIVE: Even though many stars and non-stars just adopt the same onscreen persona repeatedly, it seems like Michael Cera has become a whipping boy by those who just need to complain about actors who do good work. Blast on Cera's somewhat limited repertoire of characters all you want, but you can't argue with a body of work that includes "Superbad," "Youth in Revolt" and the supremely underestimated "Scott Pilgrim vs. the World." If he wants to play the same character over and over again (which he doesn't), then we don't mind if it results in work like that.

Michael Cera, Shannyn Sossamon, Amanda Seyfried, Jason Ritter Also In Cast A year ago, it looked like indie veteran Mark Webber might be about to take a major leap in his career, as one of the more left-field choices among the top-notch ensemble of Edgar Wright's "Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World." While Webber was terrific as the neurotic, fame-hungry Sex Bob-omb frontman Stephen Stills in the picture, the disappointing box office haul of the film meant that the actor hasn't quite cracked the mainstream yet, even if it's gone some way to helping things along.
