Will and Mitch, can lightning strike again? I'm pretty confident.

Interesting news coming in from comingsoon.net, although to be fair, I think anything with the words “Arrested” and “Development” in the title is newsworthy, so take that as you will:

“Arrested Development” series creator/executive producer Mitch Hurwitz, co-star Will Arnett and co-executive producer Jim Vallely have teamed for another Fox comedy, says The Hollywood Reporter.

The project is being written by Hurwitz, Arnett and Vallely. It stars Arnett as a rich Beverly Hills jackass who falls in love with a charitable tree-hugging woman who can’t stand his lifestyle or values.

The comedy is produced by Sony TV and studio-based Tantamount.

Hurwitz is executive producing with his producing partners at Tantamount, Eric Tannenbaum and Kim Tannenbaum; Vallely; and Peter Principato and Paul Young. Arnett also serves as a producer.

Arnett recently lent his voice to “Sit Down, Shut Up,” Hurwitz’s animated comedy for Fox and Sony TV on which Vallely served as a co-exec producer.

I’d still rather see an AD movie, but given that rumors about it’s on again-off again status are all over the place, it’s probably safer to just enjoy little bits from the people involved.  And this is Gob, so you know goddamn well I’m interested.

Gob Gets Hexed

Its not a trick Michael...

It's not a trick Michael...

I’m pretty fucking excited about the upcoming ‘Jonah Hex’ movie.  It’s a property I like, starring people I like, and I think it’s got great potential to rock. And after this morning it has even more.  Will Arnett has been added to the cast in a non-comedic role as a Union soldier who enlists Hex, played by Josh Brolin.

I’m glad Arnett is trying new stuff, don’t get me wrong, ever since Arrested Development I could watch him in anything and be entertained, but I always love when actors leave their comfort zone and try new things.  And especially such a great, wierd western tale like Hex, it’s just under the radar enough for the pressure on Arnett to be workable.

Also annouced as on board, Oscar nominee Michael Shannon as a crazy circus ringleader.
