With it now a decade since The Simpsons Movie hit the big screen, we’re finally getting word that a sequel is in the earliest of early development.
This news comes courtesy of the original film’s director David Silverman, with him explaining to EW that a follow-up is in “the very earliest stages.” Silverman went on to elaborate, “I certainly am cautious about a couple things. I wouldn’t want it to be risky in terms of budget, and I would not want it to be anything that we did purely for the money. I would want it to be a really great movie. I personally feel no need for another one unless it’s great.”
He continued, “I’d love for there to be another one. We’re still a ways away from it. We talk about this and that. We’re thinking it over, but nothing’s happening just yet.”
The Simpsons Movie proved to be a favourite of many a fan and critic, and it pulled home a strong $527 million at the global box office.
As ever, expect more on this if and when it continues to develop further. Given how long it took for us to finally get the first Simpsons film, it may well be just a little while longer before a sequel arrives.
