Since 2007’s The Simpsons Movie brought in over $500m at the global box office, off a relatively modest production budget, there’s been regular chatter about a possible follow-up. However, with The Simpsons TV series still very active – and now in the midst of its 28th series – actually finding time to do another film has proven impossible.
However, producer James L Brooks has given a new interview, and for the first time in a while, he’s hinted that there may be a small amount of movement on The Simpsons Movie 2.
Chatting to LRM, he confirmed that “Fox very much wants us to do another one, and maybe we will and maybe we won’t – that’s where it is. How do we divide our labours, and do we believe in the idea we have?”.
