"The Simpsons Movie" Still Undergoing Plot Construction

by | April 30, 2007 | Comments

You know how sometimes you’ll see a trailer that delivers a bunch of scenes that don’t make it into the final cut of the movie? Well, expect that to happen on "The Simpsons Movie."

"Simpsons" head honchos Matt Groening and James L. Brooks recently sat down for a very solid interview with Entertainment Weekly, and here are a few of the teasy tidbits they had to offer:

On the ever-changing structure of the movie: "We saw a trailer the other day, and somebody said 70 percent of the things in it — based on where we were eight weeks ago — are no longer in the movie, because we keep on fooling around." Guess that means we can expect either A) a whole bunch of deleted scenes on the DVD, or B) an "extended edition" of the movie once it goes digital.

On how many of your favorite Springfieldians get to make the leap to the silver screen: "There are 94 speaking parts [so far]. And our animals don’t speak." Cool, as long as Lenny and Karl are involved, I’m happy. Ooh, and Krusty. And Skinner. Oh, and Disco Stu.

On a recent test screening in Portland: "We learned that the audience is looking forward to seeing their favorite characters, but we still have to surprise them. It’s not just seeing your old favorites come out and wave to the audience…. And we changed some language in the movie, because some people were bugged." No word yet on how the Portlanders felt about Bart Simpson’s alleged sequence of full-frontal nakedness.

Anyway, check EW for the rest of the amusing interview.
