Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with a bit of an update from the lips of one Harry Shearer about the current goings on with the SIMPSONS movie (animated, of course). Shearer does tons of voices, including Rev. Lovejoy and everyone's favorite Jesus-freak neighbor, Ned Flanders. It's not much, but he confirms they have been doing dialogue recordings and even gives us an idea of the tone of the movie! Thanks to BlackBeltJones for taking some time off from chasing that killer cookie in order to send us this tidbit!
Not sure if this has been mentioned before, but Harry Shearer was on the Mancow radio show this morning and they were talking about all things Simpsons. He mentioned the two year contract extension and then was asked the question if this will delay the movie project by two years. His response was that it would not delay it, because they were recording dialogue for it right now. He then was asked if the movie would be more edgy to which he said that it pushed the boundaries, but it wasn't going to be an R rated movie. Asked if there was swearing in the movie, he said a little more than normal, but not the characters he voices, since he voices Rev. Lovejoy and Ned Flanders.
They talked a bit about the Simpsons live action intro that is on the web and then he had to go.
