The team behind Fox’s hit animated show “Family Guy” has been looking at possibly working on a Family Guy movie down the line, creator Seth MacFarlane told The Hollywood Reporter.
“We have been trying to figure out how to do that and the series at the same time without the series suffering,” MacFarlane said, adding that this is a challenge that also caused the “Simpsons” film to come about so late.
One possible solution, according to MacFarlane, is to have Ricky Blitt, the creator of “Winner” and a longtime ex-writer for “Family Guy” who has since moved on to other work, start on the movie script.
However, he emphasized that he had no plot ideas yet, and Fox studio executives would have to sign off on a film project as well. “Nothing is official,” he said, adding that if all things come together, a movie could be ready in a couple of years.
MacFarlane also said he would like to find a small story about the Griffin family that can be explored in a feature-length film. “I don’t want to do ‘The Griffins must save the world,’ ” he said.
