Writers Working on 'The Simpsons' Movie

Lisa Simpson will still be eight when "The Simpsons" movie comes out but the rest of us will be a lot older.

Writers are working on the movie now, according to Yeardley Smith, who voices Lisa. But they won't start making the film until after the series is over and she says the series still has at least two seasons to go.

Once the show is over, Smith told AP Radio, it will still be at least three years before the movie hits theaters because "animation takes forever."

She thinks that a movie is a good idea. "My wish for the show is that we go out with a bang not a pimple. If we can do a movie and it can be as good as our best episodes, I'm thrilled. I think that would be wonderful."

She just hopes people won't be sick of the Simpsons, now in its 15th season, by the time the movie comes out: "I just hope that at this point ... people aren't like `Oh, a movie, we're over it!'"

So their will not be a movie until the series is done. And by that interview it seems it might be done after the two seasons it has left to go. But she said "at least" so maybe they can work out getting more seasons in the future. Although, this doesn't really say anything about the contract problems that have attacked The Simpsons set recently. So are they back to work or something?

The problem is (while I'm not one of them), many people ARE sick of and/or over The Simpsons. It doesn't have the same punch that it used to. But regardless, The Simpsons is a virtual lock to clean up at the box office.

But people may grow very impatient. Three years after the series finale may be a very long wait, unless they try to go for a significant date and release the movie 20 years after the first episode premiered.

You have to assume and hope that they'll bring some of the best writers from years past (Conan and anyone from Season three) in order to write the movie. Therefore it will be good.
