antiTainment NEWS: The Simpsons Will Carry-On

05-01-04 Keavin
The voices behind The Simpsons have come to terms with the show’s producers over their compensation. Last month, the cast refused to go back to work on the program unless they got a hefty raise (see story). It worked and the actors that provide the voices to the hit Fox series nearly tripled their pay from $125,000 an episode to $360,000. 

Simpsons fans can now exhale, production on the 16th season of the show will soon get underway. The actors Dan Castellaneta (Homer), Nancy Cartwright (Bart), Yeardley Smith (Lisa), Julie Kavner (Marge), Hank Azaria (bartender Moe and Apu) and Harry Shearer (Mr. Burns and Ned Flanders) will be on hand to produce the 22 new episodes, which Fox says will air this year, despite rumors to the contrary.   

There is also a script underway for a film version of “The Simpsons” but fans will have to wait a while to see their favorite family of animated misfits on the big screen. Because of the animation involved, it may take as long as three years to produce and release a feature length film.
