‘Family Guy: The Movie’ Happening Within The Next Year

Seth MacFarlane reveals that the plot is unsuitable for TV.

TV Week's Josef Adalian recently spoke with Seth MacFarlane about his upcoming Family Guy spin-off The Cleveland Show, and MacFarlane revealed that Family Guy: The Movie would be going into production within the next year.

MacFarlane stated, "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 is definitely something you wouldn't be able to do on the show. That's the only reason to do a movie." Asked if there would be nudity and obscenities, Seth said, "Oh, yeah!"

About upcoming episodes of the show, Macfarlane said that, "Brian will date a fifty year old woman, Stewie and Brian go to Russia with Dan Aykroyd and Chevy Chase, and Lois discovers that her heritage isn't what she thought it was." You can look for Family Guy to return to Fox this fall with all new episodes.

    now and again my opinion changes as to which is better. South Park or Family Guy? at the minute it's South Park by a mile, but thats only cause i haven't seen any Family Guy recently.

    p.s.. Up your Dumper!!

  11. Err

    yeah this entire conversation is the vis's fault.
    i was more just playing devil's advocate.

  12. Err

    im sure its no coincidence that all my family guy and futrama dvds are next to each on the shelf, theyre probably my 2 favorite cartoons.

    oh no wait, i remember why theyre next to each other on the shelf, because the dvds are alphabetical.


    actually i think futurama and the boondocks are my 2 favorite cartoons, but the simpsons and family guy are a close 3rd and 4th.

    Don't forget it went to spelling incorrectly lol I'm to blame moviebuff. I figured it would be alright to bring up a live action futurama movie since i was keeping it in the cartoon genre ha

  14. MovieBuff

    Visionary... err... read all your comments and though your ideas are interesting and some of your comments are funny... how did this thread go from Family Guy to Futurama and South Park??? funny sh*t...

    Anyway... STEWIE ROCKS! And some day he WILL rule the world. hahahahaha

    well, since you bring it up, i use to have a saying, sort of like a mantra: "my middle name is dick, so im going to be one."

    Sorry man just cant imagine it, Jessica Biel and Robin Williams come on, well thats just my opinion but i do think that if they ever do do this, Anthony Anderson would play a cool hermes

    Well, it's about time they make a film on this. "Family Guy" is too great and funny of a TV show to be left off the big silver screen.

    hey youre right, only 2 exclamation points this time, im almost impressed.

    but hey man, its spelled "maybe".

  23. T.Clark

    Ya, i guess ur right err. I was just thinkin bout not having too many cgi characters in the movie since i've been saying it would be good live action lol Bender would have to be cgi, and nibbler, too. But ya, the guy has made zoidberg a fav, so it would be a slap in the face

    7 years agoby @insertusernamehereFlag

  24. Err

    but i think ziodberg would be more effective as cgi character, with billy west maintaining that role.

    i think it might be insulting to billy west if they made a movie and cut him out of it entirely, and billy west is one of my life long heroes, given all the hours of entertainment that guy has given me, as stimpy, and his various roles in other cartoons, and then for all the great work hes done for futurama.

  26. The Dark Knight

    Yeah that will work

    7 years agoby @thedarkknight23Flag

  27. T.Clark

    Fry- seth green
    Leela- Jessica Biel
    Bender- cgi w/ same voice actor
    Amy- Vannessa Hudgens
    Zoidberg- robin williams in a good suit
    Hermes- Anthony Anderson

    That's just for starters

    7 years agoby @insertusernamehereFlag

  28. Err

    why would hermes wear a rubber suit?
    hes just a fat jamaican dude, im pretty sure theres a couple fat black guys roaming the streets of hollywood who can do a decent jamaican accent.

    and i concur "the tick" (with patrick warburton) was highly under-rated.
