Family Guy Movie In the Works: Seth MacFarlane Confirms Plans

by at . Comments

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.

Family Guy: The Griffins

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.
