Jason Bateman is dishing out more scoop on the highly-anticipated return of Arrested Development!

The Identity Thief star says the series' new fourth season, which will premiere on Netflix (after being brought back from its 2006 cancellation), is finally all coming together at the hands of the show's creator Mitch Hurwitz.

"I'm just looking forward to it all being cut together," Bateman told us last night at the "A Night at Sardi's" benefit in Beverly Hills. "It's a really complicated strategy that Mitch Hurwitz has with all these episodes. Apparently he's having really good luck cutting it all together because it's kind of a puzzle. All the episodes are kind of braided with one another so it's a challenging thing he's doing and I hear he's doing really well with it."

Arrested Development to be a movie?

And what about Kristen Wiig, who has a cameo playing young Lucille (Jessica Walters)?

"Kristen and I did not work together on the show," Bateman dished. "But we worked together before and I just think she's...What can you say? I get a little star-struck around her. She's pretty great to say the least."

He added, "We were very, very fortunate to have her be a part of the show, as well as Seth [Rogen]."

As for which other stars Bateman would want for the AD reunion, he smiled, "The list is endless. You could really put anybody on that show."
