The perpetual question of will there or won’t there be an Arrested Development movie has gotten a new sub-question: Will Jennifer Aniston join the Bluths?
Jason Bateman told MTV that he wants to bring in some new blood to the movie — in the form of Ansiton. The two are out promoting their upcoming comedy The Switch, and, according to Aniston, she’s definitely up for it.
“I love it. I actually think I might have asked [Bateman] … if that was possible,” Aniston told MTV News about possibly appearing in the much-anticipated movie. The stars will also work together in the forthcoming Horrible Bosses alongside Colin Farrell and Kevin Spacey.
Bateman said he’s ready to lobby for an Aniston appearance, but her packed schedule could prove an issue. “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,” Bateman said, adding that he already has a role in mind for Aniston. “Hopefully, the guy who’s in charge will like her for that part, because I’m going to suggest her.”
Arrested creator Mitch Hurwitz is working on a script, and Will Arnett said cameras may start rolling by the end of the year.
