"Simpsons" creator Matt Groening talked to The Calgary Sun about a possible film version of the hit series. "We’re talking about doing it. We just want to make sure, if we do, it doesn’t follow in the dismal footsteps of other currently-running TV shows turned into movies. I can only think of one that worked and that was South Park," he says. "You want to honour the fans of the show, but you want to give them a little more. With the TV show, every week it’s like a little movie. There are certainly enough incidents to fill a regular movie comedy. Whether people could stand it for an hour and a half, I don’t know."
