From AICN, "SIMPSONS MOVIE Writers And Director Revealed!!
Merrick saw the Bee Gees' SGT. PEPPER'S LONELY HEARTS CLUB BAND in HD last night and has now lost all will to live. Such hideous cruelty...
Talkbackers for yesterday's article regarding THE SIMPSONS MOVIE were intrigued by our source's allusion to "original writers" scripting the film.
Fair enough...in this movie, the script is paramount (no offense, Fox).
This morning, an Austrailian publication called The Melbourne Age shed some light on who will be handling these monumental duties. According to The Melbourne Age, THE SIMPSONS MOVIE is written by Matt Groening, James L. Brooks, Al Jean, Brian Scully, Ian Maxtone-Graham, George Meyer, David Mirkin, Mike Reiss, Matt Selman, John Swartzwelder, and Jon Vitti (thanks to Skel for pointing us to this article).
In related news, Reuters is reporting that David Silverman, co-director of Pixar's MONSTERS, INC., director of many SIMPSONS episodes (and now the series' "supervising director") is helming the movie.
A Fox press release indicates that Albert Brooks, Minnie Driver and Erin Brockovich will be guest voices in the film.
I've received no refutation, or confirmation, regarding the plot point referenced in yesterday's article."
