Will ArnettAfter months of speculation, Will Arnett recently confirmed what many TV fans have been waiting to hear: 'Arrested Development' is coming to the big screen.

This week, Arnett -- who will next appear in the romantic comedy 'When in Rome' opposite Kristen Bell and Josh Duhamel -- spoke to PopEater about the highly-anticipated project and offered his thoughts on when it will hit theaters (although, as he confessed, he wasn't authorized to confirm anything. "I could be held up for treason," he quipped).

"As of now there is no start date, because we're still waiting for the script to be completed," he said. "Within the circle of people involved in the show everybody is in agreement to move forward once the script is done, so hopefully we're going to start shooting sometime this year."

As far as what he'd like to see happen in the movie, he said, "I did tell the writers that maybe it should be revealed that Gob is like this higher power, this deity, this figure that it turns out is almost god-like."

"Any time you come across somebody in life who is apparently clueless and yet has a kind of blind confidence, it really cracks me up," he added. "Gob was very much written that way. For me he was a godsend."

Meanwhile, Arnett also offered kind words to his 'Arrested' co-star, Michael Cera, who is currently starring in the comedy 'Youth in Revolt.' "Nobody can predict the future -- except me -- but he's such a talented guy. From the moment I met him it was very apparent that he was a really smart and funny guy."

"It couldn't happen to a kinder or more thoughtful person ... I'm absolutely thrilled for him."
