Simpsons Flick Underway?

Tons of different sources have jumped on this story, but we got ours from Dark Horizons, which, by the way, is an excellent movie geek news source, if you happen to need a 5-minute break from Rotten Tomatoes once in a while. The short version of the story is this: Voice actor Harry Shearer says that voice recording on The Simpsons Movie has already begun!

""Harry Shearer appeared on the Mancow radio show this morning and mentioned not only the two year contract extension but that he was recording dialogue for the "Simpsons" movie right now. The film pushes the boundaries but isn't going to be an R rated movie. Asked if there was swearing, he said a little more than normal but not the characters he voices like Rev. Lovejoy and Ned Flanders...""

This doesn't mean a whole lot just yet. The actors could record their dialogue 2 or 3 years before a movie's ready for release -- but it's still cool to know the project is moving forward.

Give me a "King of the Hill" flick with live actors. They can even use the original voice actors.

I agree with the sentiment that The Simpsons hasn't been funny in about ten years. This debate will forever rage on, but as someone who was known for years as "The Simpsons Guy", collected all the memoribilia, entered and won trivia contests, and read the book "Simpsons and Philosophy", I can say without a doubt that every episode from season ten on has been progressively more embarassing. The show is nothing but a vehicle for celebrity guests, and not even their self-effacing admissions of mediocrity can justify its continued existence. It thrives on nothing more than a prideful display of longevity and the fact that some people still watch out of loyalty.

Short version: This movie will be terrible.

I definitely still like the Simpsons and am very happy to hear that they are starting on the voice work for the film.

I agree with Keira. True, they did go through a slump for a bit, but have recently been picking things back up and getting funny again. So hopefully they'll have a good script for the movie.
