Don't Expect A Sequel To THE SIMPSONS MOVIE Anytime Soon
Talking at UCLA's annual entertainment symposium, creator Matt Groening and producer David Silverman have revealed that there are still no plans for a follow-up to The Simpsons Movie, with the latter claiming that we're unlikely to see one for "another 10, 15 years".
The Hollywood Reporter were at UCLA's annual entertainment symposium today in order to cover a special Q&A session with The Simpsons creator Matt Groening and longtime producer and director David Silverman. During the event, the subject of a sequel to box office hit The Simpsons Movie was inevitably brought up. However, despite grossing upwards of $500 million, it doesn't sound as if a follow-up is a priority for Groening or 20th Century Fox. "It took us four years [to make] and it killed us," he said before adding that it "stole animators from the show." Silverman was quick to point out that we have a long wait, although whether or not he was exaggerating is debatable. "Maybe another 10, 15 years," he told the disappointed crowd. How about you guys? Would you like to see The Simpsons Movie get a sequel? Be sure to sound off with your thoughts below!
