Family Guy Movie Will Happen, Says Seth MacFarlane

by at . Comments

Seth MacFarlane feels he may have done all he can with Family Guy on TV. So, what’s a guy to do who has created one of the funniest families in TV history? Why… take Family Guy to the big screen! MacFarlane even flirted with the idea back in 2008.

Family Guy: The Griffins

MacFarlane was talking with The Hollywood Reporter and admitted that he has created a world in Family Guy that has perhaps run its course on TV and now he envisions his Family Guy empire tackling the silver screen for movies every couple of years.

"Part of me thinks that Family Guy should have already ended. I think seven seasons is about the right lifespan for a TV series. I talk to the fans and in a way I'm kind of secretly hoping for them to say we're done with it,” MacFarlane told THR. “There are plenty of people who say the show is kind of over the hill… but still the vast majority go pale in the face when I mention the possibility."

MacFarlane admits that a film is currently being scripted, although no news as to when we can expect our favorite residents of Rhode Island to make the big screen jump.
