My Arrested Development Screenplay: part 5

Hello everyone and welcome back to the ongoing story of the greatest show ever and the one script I wrote for the movie adaption

INT. BLUTH MODEL HOME-FRONT ENTRANCE — NIGHT

Michael, George Michael, and George Michael enter the Model Home and Michael throws on the lights and looks around

MICHAEL

This place looks pretty abandoned

Michael is cut off as we hear a yell and a grungy figure charges down from the stairs and tackles Michael.

The figure gets up from on top of Michael and in the light we see that it is the grungy, slight chubby Tobias we had seen earlier.

TOBIAS

Michael?

MICHAEL

Tobias? Is that you?

GEORGE SENIOR

Tobias?

TOBIAS

 It is I.

CLOSE-UP: TOBIAS

FREEZE FRAME ON TOBIAS

NARRATOR (V.O.)

This is Michael’s former brother-in-law Tobias.

SUPER: TOBIAS FUNKE: “ACTOR”/ANALRAPIST

MICHAEL

What are you doing here?

TOBIAS

I live here Michael. I had to go somewhere after my wife left me.

NARRATOR (V.O.)

After Lindsay left him, Tobias was left without a home He had briefly been living on the set of the Television show “Wrench” about the rule-abiding detective Frank Wrench before moving into the Bluth Model Home.

CUT TO:

 INT. BEDROOM OF WRENCH TELEVISION SET — DAY

We see Tobias climbing into the bed, pulling the covers over him.

TOBIAS

(yawning)

I guess I better take a nap.

Tobias lies in bed and falls asleep.

CUT TO:

 INT. BEDROOM OF WRENCH SET — DAY

SUPER: 2 HOURS LATER

We see a lump in the bed that is Tobias sleeping. Outside the door to the bedroom we hear the voices of MOSES TAYLOR, the actor portraying Frank Wrench, star of Wrench and a FEMALE VOICE.

FEMALE VOICE (O.S.)

Oh Frank, I want you bad.

MOSES TAYLOR (O.S.)

You’ve got me babe.

The door is opened as Moses Taylor and the actress, now kissing, enter and headed towards the bed. The actress lies on the bed, lying on top of Tobias who lets out a surprised noise.

ACTRESS

What was that?

Moses Taylor and the actress get up from the bed and take the covers off to reveal Tobias, who is now awake.

ACTRESS (CONT’D)

What the hell is this?

TOBIAS

Let me explain.

From her pocket the actress pulls out a can of pepper spray and sprays Tobias in the face.

ACTRESS

Pervert!

TOBIAS

Aah!

CUT BACK TO:

 INT. MODEL HOME — NIGHT- CONTINUOUS WITH SCENE 39

TOBIAS

Yeah, I’ve been living in the attic.

MICHAEL

You’ve been living in the attic?

TOBIAS

Yeah, I’ve got a little mini-fridge up there and a small television. It’s nice and comfortable.

GEORGE SENIOR

Why didn’t you just live in the main house?

TOBIAS

I found it much easier to avoid the potential buyers in the attic.

CUT TO:

 INT. MODEL HOME-FOYER — DAY

SUPER: A MONTH EARLIER

A young married couple enters from the front door, looking around the house. At the same time a naked Tobias, fresh from the shower, is headed down the stairs, off to the right towards the kitchen. He walks in front of the couple who are stunned for a few seconds then…

YOUNG WOMAN

Oh my God!

NARRATOR (V.O.)

It was because of that incident Tobias returned to cut-offs

CUT TO:

 INT. MODEL HOME-ATTIC

SUPER: MINUTES LATER

Tobias enters the attic and opens a box of cut off jean pants he takes a pair out.

TOBIAS

Oh, thank god.

CUT BACK TO:

 INT. MODEL HOME-FOYER — NIGHT- CONTINUOUS

TOBIAS

Yeah, it’s best that I stay in the attic.

MICHAEL

Aren’t you concerned that someone might buy the house?

TOBIAS

I don’t think there’s a risk of that happening.

MICHAEL

Why, Because of the shoddy workmanship?

We hear a clatter from the living room area as something breaks. Everyone notices it but chooses to ignore it.

TOBIAS

No, because I plan to buy it.

MICHAEL

Do you have the money to buy it?

TOBIAS

No, but I thought maybe I could get a loan.

MICHAEL

From who?

TOBIAS

From the bank, I hear they’ll give a loan to anyone. If that doesn’t work maybe I can get a bailout from the president.

MICHAEL

The president of what?

 

TOBIAS

The Bluth Company, of course.

MICHAEL

You do know there no longer is a Bluth Company.

TOBIAS

Yeah, but I’m sure you have some money just lying around.

GEORGE SENIOR

There’s always money in the Banana Stand.

Everyone looks at George Senior

GEORGE SENIOR

I hid $2 million in the wall just in case.

TOBIAS

Maybe I can borrow some of that money?

MICHAEL

We’ll talk about it tomorrow.

 

Once again Michael picks up George Michael’s heavy suitcase.

GEORGE MICHAEL

Dad, I can get that.

MICHAEL

Oh, it’s no problem. Why don’t you get the rest of the bags?

George Michael reluctantly picks up the rest of the bags and him and Michael head up the stairs.

Are you coming?

GEORGE SENIOR

Yeah, in a few minutes

My Arrested Development Screenplay: Part 1

Hey everyone. I’m a huge fan of Arrested Development. As you can probably tell by my blog title. I’m such a big fan that in high school,  before season 4 was even announced, I endeavored to write my own version of an Arrested Development Movie. I did end up posting it in multiple parts on my old blog, but recently I kind of rediscovered the script and decided to do a rewrite and perhaps do a table read of it with a few of my comedian buddies. Since I’ve rewritten it I thought I would share it with you over the course of the next few months in multiple parts. I hope you enjoy and let me know what you think. Be mindful that it does for the most part ignore season 4.

Introductory Post

Hello Internet,

My name is Tim Miller. This is my first post on WordPress, but I am by no means new to blogging. For many years  I was a blogger on the IGN Blogs/.MyIGN, but with a new year I thought I would try starting a new blog. It will feature a lot of my similar stuff to my
old blog , just in a different place, so mostly entertainment stuff with a heavy dose of Arrested Development as the blog title is Blog of an Arrested Development Fan.

A little bit about me: I’m 26 from Missoula, Montana. I’m a huge fan of Arrested Development, Star Wars, and Batman among other things. I’m an aspiring writer and I also recently started doing stand-up comedy which I’m really starting to enjoy.

This is a new blog, but I’m still going to do some of the same features I did on my old blog. One such feature was called Future Installmentswhere I created a wishlist for a future installment in a game, movie, tv, or even comic franchise.

I just recently finished up Season 1 of the The Telltale Batman Series and while nothing has been officially announced I’m assuming  a season 2 will happen and here are a few things I want to see in Batman; The Telltale Series Season 2

Returning Villains: The interactions with Selina were some of my favorite parts the first season and I would like to see that relationship continue. They set up Joker nicely as a dangling thread from Season 1 so I would be surprised if they don’t do anything with it. The also left it open for Two-face, Penguin and Lady Arkham to return, but I don’t care as much about  them. I feel like they got covered pretty well in the first season

New Villains: I do like the fact they introduced Lady Arkham as a new character in the first season and I would like to see maybe a new one for Season 2, but I would also like to see classic Batman villains such as Riddler and Mr. Freeze make an appearance. I have a feeling Ras al Ghul and the League of Shadows is probably connected to Lady Arkham and the Children of Arkham so he would probably play a decent role in the story. One of my personal favorite villains that I feel like doesn’t get a lot of justice is Hush, so I wouldn’t mind seeing him play a role.

Robin: I know some are you are probably scoffing at the inclusion of Robin, but I think he is a big part of the Batman mythos and should not be overlooked. The first season takes place early in Batman’s career so I could see season 2 having him meet Dick Grayson, the first Robin

Continue to Provide new takes on the story: One of the things I enjoyed about Season 1 was there willingness to change some parts of the Batman Mythos such as Vicki Vale being Lady Arkham, Harvey Dent not necessarily being scarred, and a more personal connection between Bruce Wayne and Oswald Cobblepot. I would like that to continue in Season 2.  One of the most memorable moments in the first season was the choice to save Harvey from being disfigured at Penguin’s hands. It provided a chance to change established continuity. I think, if Robin is included, a similar decision can be made where you can either save the Flying Grayson(Dick’s family) or not and see how that would alter the timeline and the Batman/Robin dynamic or even if it would even exist.

 

Anyways those are some of my thoughts for  Batman: The Telltale Series Season 2. What do you guys think and what would you like to see?

Latest Stand-up Video: I mentioned I was a stand-up comedian so I think I might try and post my latest set at the end of each post

 

Weekly Comedy Pull List: Since I plan on doing one post a week, usually on Sundays(no promises though) I thought I would give you guys a preview of what  comics I will be picking up this week.

What I got Last WeeK:

USAvengers #1: I’ve been looking for a marvel team book to read so I thought I would try this new series out. I enjoyed the first issue and will probably pick up at least the second issue

Klaus and the Witch of Winter: I picked up this one-shot because I really liked the mini-series, but I felt like there was a little lacking. I think there is more story to discover in the Klaus universe though.

X-files #9: I read this series mostly out of habit, but it does seem to keep sucking me back in

 

What I will Pick up this week:

Detective Comics #946: I’m definitely enjoying this current run of Detective Comics

All-star Batman #6:  Another great Batman series. I’m excited for the start of the Mr. Freeze story arc

Poe Dameron #10: This is probably my second favorite ongoing Star Wars Series after the main one(RIP Darth Vader). It kind of makes me wish there were more  Force Awaken-era series

What I might pick up this week:

Obi-wan and Anakin #1:  I’m not sure about this one. It is a mini-series and I do like Star Wars, I just don’t know if I want a Prequel trilogy-era comic.

That’s what I’m picking up. What about you guys.

 

Post-end Poem: I’ve written a few poems here and there and I thought I would share them with you guys to cap off my post. Let me know what you think.

Creation of the Poem

 

The poem came first,

embedded in the soul

of the poet.

 

It sprang from him,

like an uncaged beast.

 

He let it pour out

and began to write feverishly.

Stillborn drafts

piled on the floor.

 

From deep inside his being

the words leapt

 

Finally, he set his pen down,

and let out an exasperated sigh,

satisfied with the new creation.
