Simpsons movie sequel already has basic story


The Simpsons executive producer James L. Brooks has revealed that a basic plotline already exists for a second Simpsons movie, should the show’s team ever broach a follow-up.

Talking with Coming Soon , Brooks said that the Simpsons players have a “beginning notion” for a movie sequel, but the “series always comes first with us”.

“We're open to it,” he says about a follow-up, though he admits that the first film “was much harder than we anticipated. It took us a year to try and get to the point because we're all so scared of 'What are we going to do to the Simpsons ' and 'What if the movie is no good?'”

He adds: “It was a huge success and we're very open to it and we have a beginning notion if we want to do it, but the series always comes first with us. The series is always primary to us.”

Considering The Simpsons Movie was a huge success when it opened in 2007, we’re sure 20th Century Fox are keen to get another film onto the starting blocks. But with the show still going strong in its 22nd season, it seems they’d be lucky to get a sequel any time soon…
