Speaking at an event to announce a contest for film students to help hand out Oscars at the 85th Academy Awards, Seth MacFarlane spoke quite confidently about the long-rumored Family Guy movie.
When asked during the Q&A about a big-screen adaptation of his popular TV show, MacFarlane said that it is most likely happening, "it's just a matter of when." He also revealed that he has a story in mind for the movie, claiming that while he loved The Simpsons Movie, it didn't feel to him like something that couldn't have been done on TV.
The story that MacFarlane has is apparently "something that would be impossible to do on TV." What does that mean? Could it be a grandiose profane musical, a la South Park: Bigger Longer & Uncut? Or perhaps some sort of 3-hour long 48 fps 3D epic fantasy?
Whatever it is, with the success of Family Guy, and MacFarlane's cinematic debut earlier this year with Ted, he is bound to have a fair amount of creative liberty to make his vision a reality.
