The Simpsons Hit The Silver Screen

Production bosses are finally bringing THE SIMPSONS to the big screen after years of trying - but they're refusing to divulge any details about the project.

According to creator and writer JAMES L BROOKS, an idea has been accepted which will see the family from the hit TV series - HOMER, MARGE, BART, LISA and MAGGIE - hit the big screen in the next few years.

But AS GOOD AS IT GETS director Brooks is keen to keep the project under wraps, because it's only in its infant stage.

He says, "We've got a very good and interesting idea, and it's different from the show. You know, it's like the SOUTH PARK movie where it's just a bigger, longer, amplified version of the show. I can't tell you anything specific about it. My wife doesn't even know the secret."

Fellow writer MIKE REISS adds, "It's been 13 years of wanting to do The Simpsons movie. Finally FOX said, 'Let's just do it!' We never had the greatest idea that was compelling but Fox said, 'Maybe if we start paying you, you'll get inspired.' And sure enough, it worked!"
