The Hollywood Reporter brings more news that should please fans of Will Arnett (best known as "Gob" on "Arrested Development"). The now-very-busy actor will star in "We’re the Millers," a pot-laced comedy from the guys who wrote "Wedding Crashers."

"The story follows a a drug dealer (Arnett) who on his 30th birthday realizes that he wants out of the business. He decides to do one more job, which forces him to travel to Mexico and create a make-believe family, the Millers, in order to bring 1,400 pounds of marijuana into the U.S.

The script was written by Steve Faber and Bob Fisher, who penned "Wedding Crashers" for the studio," and will be directed by Peter Cattaneo ("The Full Monty").

"Canada-born Arnett has been on a roll since he began starring as a member of the Bluth clan on Fox’s award-winning "Arrested Development." Arnett will appear opposite Robin Williams in the Barry Sonnenfeld-helmed comedy "R.V." and also is attached to star in the comedies "Dad Can’t Lose" and "Get ‘Em Wet," both for Paramount, as well as in "Most Likely to Succeed," which is set up at Universal. "Dad" and "Most" are being directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, both of who won an Emmy for directing the "Arrested Development" pilot."
