After months of speculation, producer Mitch Hurwitz told Rolling Stone that he's started work on an "Arrested Development" movie.

"I'm working on the movie right now," Hurwitz said. "I can't get into much more detail because I don't want to scare anybody off. I don't want to be presumptuous about it. I don't own the property outright — it's a 20th Century Fox property. But everybody seems really into it and really eager to make a movie."

Though Hurwitz has started work on the film, the project has yet to receive a green light. "I'm hoping it happens as soon as possible," Hurwitz said. "But I want to be very careful about not putting out false information. I want to get a time and tell everybody when it's happening and not play with people. Right now, I'm trying to do something else for Netflix and a movie project and things. I'm always sort of superstitious about talking about this stuff before it happens. It's the best way to guarantee it doesn't happen."

While the cast's busy schedules forced the fourth season to adapt to a new format, in which each episode focused on an individual character, Hurwitz is hopeful about filming a movie. "A TV season is a six-month commitment," he explained. "But I think it would be very doable to get them together for four or five weeks to make a movie."

The new season was received with mixed reviews, but Hurwitz still hopes to do another season of "Arrested" following the movie. "The whole thing is sort of unprecedented," he said. "It's always been its own little thing. I kind of feel like the more it stays original, the better chance it has. As soon as it goes back to trying to do exactly what it was before, you run the risk of doing a reunion show or something."
