The hottest ticket in town on October 2, 2011 was the cast reunion of the TV show “Arrested Development” as part of the New Yorker Festival.  Before I get into what the program for this afternoon was all about – here’s the information you are all dying to know:

Writer/Creator Mitchell Hurwitz confirmed that an “Arrested Development” movie is happening.  The script is half way finished and they are aiming to begin shooting in the summer of 2012.  Leading up to the film, there will be up to 10 installments (one per character) letting the audience know what everyone’s been up to since the show went off the air.  Distribution methods are still being worked out, but one might expect webisodes or non-traditional means of delivery.

Ron Howard called in and Liza was not in attendance, but the rest of the principals on “Arrested Development” were on stage talking about the ups and downs of the show, some of their heroes and influences and there was also a brief question and answer session with the audience.

As you can expect from the cast, they cracked jokes constantly and also spoke about their proudest moments on the show.  The audience consisted of “Arrested Development” die-hards and you could hear a pin drop when the cast spoke about the show.

The cast would not reveal too much about the plot on the upcoming film, but they did advise that each character will probably screw things up when the script is locked.

At the end of the hour long presentation, the cast did the chicken dance!

Brandon Flowers of the Killers.

Rumors have been circulating for the last 6 months about The Killers lead singer Brandon Flowers going solo and as usual with rumors, this one has turned out to be true.  Details are hazy about his first solo project, but the Killers official website has announced the title of the record will be called “Flamingo.”  I am hoping he does a Julian Casablancas (The Strokes) or Gwen Stefani (No Doubt) jump the shark – type of record.  I guess we’ll all just have to stay tuned.

Please let this rumour be true!

Garbage to reunite?

NME is reporting that Shirley Manson, the lead singer of Garbage, has mentioned that she’s recently been in the studio with her mates Butch Vig, Steve Marker and Duke Erikson also known as Garbage.

I hope these rumours not only turn out to be true but also that 2010 sees some new music from Shirley and company.  It’s been way too long!  Come back to us Garbage!
