    In 1993, Matt Groening, in a caveman-era Internet chat, was asked if there'd ever be a Simpsons movie. He didn't say yes, he didn't say no. He said a film "is way down the line."

    He wasn't kidding.

    More than 10 years since that Net moment and more than 15 years since Groening's animated clan made their TV debut, The Simpsons is finally getting ready for its close-up.

    Maybe.

    That's kinda old news. The rights to a movie were included when the contract was renewed last year.

    best series of all time but the movie usually means the end of the series and movies usually stink when they are based on a 30 minute show on TV

    "Per the trade paper, 'at least seven' veteran Simpsons writers, including Groening and executive producers James L. Brooks and Al Jean, are at work on a script."

    Give them a bit of credit after 15 years of writing the show... I'm sure they can come up with a good movie.
