Default The Simpsons Movie

The Simpsons Movie
Movies.Yahoo.com

Release Date: TBA 2007 (wide)

Release Date Notes: (6/7/05) In an interview on BBC's Radio 1, Nancy Cartwright stated that the cast had a table read for the feature script and that it is currently in production. She didn't reveal a title or a plot, but said to expect it in a few years.

Type of Animation: Traditional; a few years back, Corona posted a very popular April Fool's Day joke page that described a live-action movie project, but that's not going to happen. When The Simpsons come to movies, they'll be the animated characters you already know.

Distributor: 20th Century Fox

Production Company: Gracie Films

Cast (Voice): Dan Castellaneta (Homer Simpson), Julie Kavner (Marge Simpson), Nancy Cartwright (Bart Simpson), Yeardley Smith (Lisa Simpson), Hank Azaria (many characters), Harry Shearer (many characters) (note: each of these actors, except Yeardley Smith, voice several other characters as well; see IMDb listing for more); expect plenty of celebrity guest voices as well; but, heck, some of them might not even be celebrities yet...! (as of 7/3/01)

Cast Notes: Michael Fleming of Variety reported on 5/15/01 that the six central voice stars signed on for two feature films when they renewed their contracts for more seasons. It's very likely that other voice cast will also make the transition. See this IMDb listing for the regular cast list, and this IMDb listing for guest appearances. As of 7/3/01, there is no word which specific characters will make it to the feature film, although I have a feeling many will (even if it's just "made-for-DVD" cameos, like the TV show often has)

Director: Not announced yet.

Screenwriter: Unknown; it will surely be writers from the show, probably several. Matt Groening will probably be one of them.

Screenwriters Note: (2/12/04) In their article about this project's early formation this week, "Variety" reported that a team of seven writers from the TV's writing staff are working on coming up with ideas for this movie. The trade's guesses at the identities of those seven writers are Mike Reiss (confirmed), Matt Groening (a certainty), James L. Brooks (extremely likely), Al Jean, George Meyer, David Mirkin and Mike Scully.

Based Upon: The long-running (since 1989), award-winning animated comedy series on FOX, created by Matt Groening (of the Life is Hell comic strips), which have spawned music albums, cereal, parade balloons, t-shirts, you-name-it.

Sequel Note: The cast's new contracts include not just this film, and the next few seasons, but a second film as well.

Joke Note: Back in March, 2001, while talking to Chicago Sun-Times columnist Cindy Pearlman, exec. producer David Mirkin joked that he'd like to see "lots of Simpson sex." He was kidding. Unfortunately, like people on the Internet are prone to do, this quote was taken out of context and spread around like gospel.

Filming: (6/7/05) With the confirmation that a script has been completed and the actors have read it, animation should commence shortly.

Premise:

7/03/01 - Absolutely no details have been revealed about what this film could be about.

Genre: Animation, Comedy, TV Show

The Simpsons is the greatest show of all time, then Seinfeld, South Park and the Chappelle Show.

I wouldn't say those are the greatest. But they are in my top 20... South Park is #2...

I have absolutely NO desire to see this movie whatsoever... The show isn't even mildly entertaining anymore. Yes, 20 years ago it was groundbreaking an controversial... Now it's just junk...

I like the Simpsons very much. I saw the episode where it was real life people as the intro, and I didn't like it... LOL! They are better as cartoons. I think the movie will be something we rent... but ya never know.
