    Much like Buster Bluth incessantly crying for Mother, fans are contently hounding the entire cast of “Arrested Development” over any new detail about the long-rumored movie.

    This time around, it’s Jason Bateman. Though he has two movies due out this summer (“The Change-Up” and “Horrible Bosses), the question on every fan’s lips is the same: update, now!

    But Bateman isn’t privy to any top-secret information. At least, he doesn’t give anything away. “I have no update at all,” he said.

    “As far as I know,” Bateman told Entertainment Weekly, “[creator] Mitchell Hurwitz is working on the script and he wants to start shooting at some point this year.”

    No news, though, is good news. “While I haven’t heard anything new,” Bateman said, “I haven’t heard anything what would contradict that.”

    Bateman said that playing the neurotic but essentially good Michael Bluth on the show was a “career saver,” and the role he’s “most proud of.”

    Here’s hoping he can be proud again.
