Seth McFarlane was on The Adam Carolla Podcast (which I highly, highly recommend) the other day, and the discussion eventually turned to The Family Guy movie, which is apparently in the works, and… may included live action? Here’s the exchange:
MCFARLANE: I can say with definitive assuredness that it will be out. Within the next few years. We already know what it’s gonna be. We’ve been trying to lock into something that makes it so that it has to be a movie, as opposed to an extended Family Guy episode. And I like the Simpson’s Movie, but that’s something they could do with animation on TV because they’re not constrained by sets. [...] You have to find some way to make it so that it has to be a movie.
CAROLLA: Are you hinting at some live action?
MCFARLANE: Possibly, possibly. Here and there. It will not be a 90-minute Family Guy episode.
That sounds like a lot of work. And judging by how many Family Guy episodes are on at any given time, Seth McFarlane must have roughly 18 bajillion dollars. If I were him, I wouldn’t be making movies. I’d be sitting by the pool while my buxom assistant fed me nachos. Because I don’t like to get the cheese on my fingers, you see.
