He says that it's act two and three of the new story...
Jason Bateman has confirmed that plans are still moving forward for an Arrested Development film that will follow the new season premiering on Netflix in May. Bateman told Larry King (via Digital Spy) that the film will be essential in order to complete the new season's storyline.
"There's a big story that the showrunner wants to tell; this guy Mitch Hurwitz, this smart guy. And the story was too big to kind of ... every time he'd try to fit it all in one movie, it wouldn't work," Bateman said. "So he decided to put sort of the first third of it in these episodes we have shot that are going be on Netflix in May, and Act 2 and Act 3 will be inside a movie that we will do later."
Bateman also compared the upcoming season, which will premiere all at once on Netflix, to an LP. "All the episodes are released on the same day, like you would an album," he said. "You can listen to whatever song in whatever order, and in this case you can watch any episode in whatever order. Depending on the order in which you watch them, certain things will be revealed to you or not. It's pretty complicated."
