As if the movie version of Arrested Development wasn’t hotly anticipated enough, now Jennifer Aniston reveals there may be a part in the eccentric comedy for her.
There’s been talk of the film since the cult series finished in 2006 but now creator Mitch Hurwitz is working on a script, Michael Cera has discussed the project and Will Arnett has also talked about filming beginning this year.
While several of the original cast will reprise their roles for the movie, Jason Bateman recently revealed that he wants to involve Jennifer in the flick telling MTV News that “there’s a real good part for her in the Arrested Development movie”.
But Jason says his co-star on The Switch and their upcoming movie, Horrible Bosses, will have to work for the part: “There’s no offers on this one. She’s gonna have to sing for her supper,” he says.
“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.”
So what does Jen think about the idea? “I love it,” Jennifer told MTV News. “I actually think I might have asked [Jason] … if that was possible.”
