Hit the mark high in its theatrical debut last July to then collect a worldwide gross of about $484.4 million so far, sure hopes are high for "The Simpsons Movie" to have a follow-up. Sad to say, however, that this won't happen, at least not soon.
Producer for the animated flick Al Jean has been caught to give indication that there are currently no plans for a sequel to the film despite its hugely successful performance on the box office.
"We would only do a sequel if we believed it was a movie that had to be made, just like we did with the first one," so the man stated to the New York Post. "We wouldn’t want to do it just because the first one was successful, or because we wanted to make money off of a movie. We’d only do it if we had a script that we thought was great [and] there’s no script at this point."
The big screen adaptation of Fox's long-running animated TV series "The Simpsons", "The Simpsons Movie" has been known to be a very secretive project when dealing with plot details. The producers were reported to personally shred the script after every voicing session in order to prevent the story's leak.
