Matt Groening, creator of Fox’s "The Simpsons," had bad news over the weekend for “Simpsons” fans who are holding out hope for another feature film based on the cartoon series.
Groening told an audience Saturday night at UCLA’s annual entertainment symposium that there’s little chance of a sequel to 2007’s “The Simpsons Movie” anytime soon, UPI reports.
The piece cites The Hollywood Reporter quoting Groening at the event, saying of the first movie, "It took us four years [to make] and it killed us.”
“The movie ‘stole animators from the show,’ Groening said, adding that despite bringing in $500 million, it drained other resources,” UPI reports. “Another ‘Simpsons’ movie will come in ‘Maybe another 10, 15 years,’ added longtime ‘Simpsons’ producer-director David Silverman.”
