Could an Arrested Development movie be in the works?

Seems like they could draw up a screenplay for such a movie pretty soon; some people think the writers' strike might end this week. (What else is new?) But seriously, EW says a tentative deal has been reached. Meanwhile, one of the bigwig execs showed up at the Super Bowl and started telling people the strike was over. It's looking certain enough that some hit shows are making plans to return to production. (No word on Lost or 24, though.) Don't jinx this!

The rumor is Stone Temple Pilots will be reuniting for this May's Rock on the Range festival at Crew Stadium. I would totally go see that.

Pushing Daisies' Anna Friel will star with Will Ferrell in the upcoming film version of Land of the Lost.

And don't forget to stream the new Re-Up Gang mixtape right here. I know there are other Clipse fans out there in Internetland. Gorilla Vs. Bear has some individual MP3s, including the brothers rapping over classic Dre beats. UPDATE: Or just get it as one huge MP3.

As long as we're talking rap here, Cuuuuuurtis and the rest of G-Unit have a mixtape dropping today too.

And did I mention a new Capone-N-Noreaga song that samples System of a Down? I'm in.

OK, let's get back to appealing to my white, middle-aged fanbase (hi, Mom and Dad!) by reliving Tom Petty's solid, no-frills Super Bowl halftime show. (OK, so I guess the phallic arrow to the heart was a frill.) Opening number "American Girl" is below; the rest of the songs are viewable here. Oh, and which aging classic rocker with mass appeal should perform next year?
