Family Guy movie set to start shooting within year
LOS ANGELES, (RUSHPRNEWS) 08/30/2008–It looks like the wheels have started to spin for a Family Guy film. We get wind of this news from moviesonline: In an interview with TV Week MacFarlane says, “We want to do it. And it is time. In the past six months we have seriously started talking about it. And my hope is that we will get it going within the next year. Doing the show is a seven-day a week process, so I don’t know how we will squeeze in a movie. But we will figure it out. I have an idea about what it will be. It’ s definitely something you wouldn’t be able to do on the show. That’s the only reason to do a movie.”
I’ m not a fan of Family Guy, I don’t hate the show and will watch from time to time – but it isn’t something that I follow on a regular basis. I do have some interest in seeing a film however. The episodes are like clip shows, and that’s fine for 30 min, but for a feature I am guessing that a proper story will be needed. If they hammer out a fable and deviate from the norm, I think we will have a welcome change for both fans and foes of the franchise.
Now we wait for them to begin writing. When news of developments start to surface, we will be sure to bring them to your attention.
International Friends – what are your thoughts on the announcement of a Family Guy feature?
