Once every couple of months, a former "Arrested Development" cast member hints at the possibility of a feature film reuniting the Bluth family.

Thursday was another such day.

"The answer is I think we're going to make it. I think we're going to make 'Arrested Development,'" said actor Jeffrey Tambor, who played frozen banana entrepreneur, George Bluth Sr., and his brother/hermano Oscar Bluth.

"It looks good. Everybody's on board. Mitch is on board, and the whole cast. We're all very excited," Tambor said during an interview for Nonstop News LA at 7 P.M.

"What's holding it up is my negotiations for a trailer," he added. "I insist that there be a toilet, and we're bogged down."

Tambor, who stars in the upcoming film "Lucky," was ready for the question, a now clichéd final inquiry all cast members are apparently accustomed to receiving (see: Will Arnett, Jason Bateman, Michael Cera, David Cross).

"I know what you're going to ask me," Tambor said before we actually had a chance to ask about the film's possibility.

Earlier this year, series creator Mitch Hurwitz confirmed that he is in the process of writing the script with producer James Vallely.

"Lucky" opens in select theaters in Los Angeles and New York on July 15. The dark comedy stars Colin Hanks as a serial killer who wins the lottery and romantically pursues a childhood friend, played by Ari Graynor. Tambor plays a hapless detective hot on the trail.
