Homer does Hollywood

02.10.2004

I hate to beat a dead horse (who the f*ck beats a dead horse?), but another item from our 2004 Wish List has been checked off. DVDFanatic has got word that long time writer of the beloved television show THE SIMPSONS, Mike Reiss, is currently writing the script for THE SIMPSONS movie with five other veteran writers from the show. When asked for details in the interview, Reiss responded, "They’ve wanted to do this since season two. It’s been 13 years of wanting to do The Simpsons Movie. Finally FOX said, “Let’s just do it!” We never had the greatest idea that was compelling but FOX said, “Maybe if we start paying you, you’ll get inspired.” And sure enough it worked! We’ve got a very good and interesting idea and it’s different from the show. You know, it’s like the “South Park” movie where it’s just a bigger, longer, amplified version of the show. I can’t tell you anything specific about it. My wife doesn’t even know the secret." You can read the entire first part of the interview right here, where he also adds that we should expect to see the film sometime in 2006 and discusses details of the next DVD set.

It was always rumored that the film would be the last hurrah for the series. Could this be it? Fan-boys across the globe will tell you that the show has run it's course. I've been a fan of this series since I first saw it on the Tracey Ullman Show and while I still think it has some of the best writing on the air, I can't help but get embarrassed by the complete disregard for the show's one-time cult status as they continue to whore out the Simpson's name to, literally, any piece of merchandise they can get their hands on. Each new episode seems to hang it's hopes on the arrival of a new guest voice and you can't help but notice the increasing amount of musical numbers. Don't get me wrong, I want this film just as bad as the next fan, but when it's finally done and there's nothing left to prove, take your billions upon billions of dollars and call it a day.
