'Arrested Development' fans around the globe continue to anticipate the upcoming 15-episode reunion season, now set to debut on May 26. Beyond the so-called fourth season, we've heard series creator Mitch Hurwitz and star Jason Bateman describe the new episodes as a build-up to the long-proposed movie, but how long would it take for the movie to get off the ground? New word from Jason Bateman suggests we might have to wait awhile...

Last night's 'Bates Motel' premiere earned rave reviews across the board, jump-starting the new franchise to explore a young Norman Bates (Freddie Highmore) and his relationship with his mother Norma (Vera Farmiga), but did you know it wasn't the first attempt to capitalize on a 'Psycho' TV series? NBC first tried with a 1987 'Bates Motel' pilot that featured Bud Cort and a younger Jason Bateman ('Arrested Development') and we have the bizarre pilot for you to check out inside!

When 'Horrible Bosses' came out in 2011, it was one of a wave of comedies unleashed that summer (including 'Bridesmaids,' 'The Hangover Part II' and 'Bad Teacher'), but it was also one of the most successful, as it made over a hundred million at the box office on a smaller budget. Though it's hard to know how Charlie Day, Jason Sudeikis and Jason Bateman could have new horrible bosses, all have signed on for a sequel.

'Identity Thief 2' Already Being Discussed?

'Identity Thief' has been in theaters for less than two weeks and it's already grossed $76 million at the box office, an enormous amount for a modestly budgeted comedy with a known but untested leading lady. Although critics haven't been as kind as audiences, $100 million is a sure thing at this point and we wouldn't rule out $150 million if March is kind to it. So of course Universal has already thought about an 'Identity Thief 2.' They probably thought about it two weeks ago.

'Identity Thief' Review

Funny is, of course, subjective. I find Woody Allen funny but there are plenty of people who find him about as amusing as being slowly asphyxiated in plastic bags from CVS. Still, I'll hazard to guess that there is no one who will find Melissa McCarthy obnoxiously singing along to Kelis' not-at-all-current "Milkshake" funny. Especially when 'Identity Thief' - a new "comedy" with McCarthy and Jason Bateman - goes to quite successful lengths to make you HATE her character. And you just might wind up hating this movie too.
