As mentioned, Groening divorced around 1999.

I find it rather unlikely Matt would just blurt something like this do some dude he met at the party. Perhaps he was drunk?

I know what you mean.  Matt is the type of guy who would definitely know how the word would spread quickly.  He's well aware and familiar with media technology, so I can't imagine him trusting some random kid if he actually wanted to keep it secret.  That is, unless it was going to be announced soon anyway, or maybe he just figured not many people would believe him anyway.   wink

Still supports the idea that the whole thing is untrue, though.

Perhaps. The photo doesn't look photoshopped at all. You can see this because I wouldn't think they could move his whole arm around the other guy's body. Also, the suit seems to be on Matt.

Also, the drunk idea is coming into play, since Matt's hair is alittle...unprofessional at that moment.

Any reply from DXC yet? I emailed him a few times and never got a reply. Once with the Roswell Commentary Question and another in the last hoax thread(April Fools Thread).

As a member of SA, I found the thread.
I also found a bunch of other futurama threads that kept me reading for a while.   And made me watch a few episodes.

Anyway, 10 hours later I'm back with results.

As for the 'randomly telling some kid' the guy claims he heard Matt tell a few people, not just him.

Other than that what you have seen is everything the guy really said, and its kinda tough to really judge the validity of the statement.

However, it did end up being a 6 page thread of people offering to kill the original poster if it was a lie.  SA is most certainly Futurama's friend, I think.

Do you happen to know of this guy is usually seen as being reliable there?  That can make a huge difference.

As for David Cohen e-mail, nothing so far.  Maybe Marc should e-mail him, since Cohen sort of knows him, and any rumors Marc sends to him would be more important then the random weird rumors Cohen probably gets every day or so.

*laughs* True. Out of every picture I've seen of Matt, his hair almost always looks like that. I'm still full of faith, so I guess I will have to wait until David replies, but until then you can say I'm a nigh-beleiver.

I believe someone mentioned that in the posters 18 months of being a member of SA he had 10 posts, or some low number like that.

Just a lurker, not much information to draw from there.  Though I think one other person did confirm that Matt was in fact at said event.  Not that that means too much.

Ill wait till its on IMDb or something before I'll get my hopes up.

The picture is a Photoshop, as a few have said before me.
Here's why I think its a PS.

1. When you look at Matt you can see that a Strong flash was used, because the front of him is quite bright and the back and sides of his hair are pretty dark.
This is interesting because as you can see the backround is well lit. Any light from the back should have Highlighted his hair, and you would noticed a bight FLASH in glass paneling of the door behind them.

2. You can tell where the flash came from from Matts glasses, in this case Directly in front of him. But thats not the case with the other man, when you look at his right lense the flash is more into the corner of his glasses this should not be.

3. If you look below the other mans LEFT EAR you will notice a SHADOW on the wall behind him as well as a shadow that is just left of his chin.

4. If you take the shadows cast on the wall obvesly made by the other man into consideration you would come to the conclution that he is not that far from the wall.
Now also take in the door behind them, it quite small in refferance to them isen't it!

Anyway thats why I think its a fake.

And plus, when you laook at a smaller version of the pic, It looks mare like that pic of Matt G was taken of him walking down the RED CRAPET and posing for paparazzi.

P.S. Sorry for th spelling.

Dogdoo8, The shadow thing does look kind of weird.

Also Bandit Ruler, the April fools thread is called "Futurama Renewed?". So just Search for that and you'll find it.

Again I say Bullpies.  Aside from any falts in the photographic "evidence" this is the lamest, most unconvincing and confirmationless rumor I've ever heard.

"OMG I met Matt Groening and he randomly told me this big secret!!!11onetwo"

No.  Just...no.

Not that I don't want it to be true, I've just seen far more convincing rumors that tuned out to be false.

And have you guys been sending your anchovies?  I'm starting to feel a little silly here.

edit: Though, I have to admit that whenever I'm in a grocery store, I always eye that can of anchovies.. but they're actually kinda hard to find for me. And obviously, sardines wouldn't be acceptable.  wink

If Matt, as claimed, had the scripts in his hotel room it would mean he'd already negotiated a deal with FOX, or at the very least were close to finalizing things. After keeping this a secret for so long, he just accidently spilled it when randomly bumping into a hotel employee who said he was a Futurama fan? Eeeeh, sounds a bit far fetched to me.

And why would he take the scripts with him? Shouldn't they be looked inside some safe at Curiosity Company, rather than lying on a night table in some New York hotel room?

Taking pictures, signing autographs and a friendly chat I can understand, but sharing business secrets with complete strangers?

Sounds a bit too coincidental too me. Don't get me wrong I would love for this to be true, but it goes under "unsubstantiated Internet rumours" for now.

Now if Sarge or futufan popped their head in and confirmed it I will be dancing on the rooftops tonight. But, "some guy who happened to bump into Matt Groening and share a cigarette with his girlfriend" (I wonder if Matt knows about that  wink )...

Don't confuse not caring with not knowing!

I am in the middle right now, but the thing with the "sharing business secrets with a complete stanger" I disagree with. It wasn't truly a complete stranger since they were both at this party...supposidly.

Matt was at a party, the author was an employee working at the hotel where the party happened to take place. They never met before, and probably never will again. That's the very definition of "complete stranger".

You don't go around telling bell boys and doormen what your latest, top-secret project is, particular if you haven't finalized details with your business asoociate.

No offence to bellboys and doormen.

Don't confuse not caring with not knowing!

After analyzing the photo I cannot say than it is faked. The red eye appears in both person's eyes and what the flash does on the rear wall depends on it's range, diffusion, etc. It appears to be cropped though with a person to the fan's left omitted. So if we could see the whole pictue the fan would be in the center. Adds some points to the girlfriend comment, perhaps she was cropped out by request.

That said I think I can make out Jack Ruby in the shadow to the left.

welcome to peel tomFROMbrooklyn,

hasn't anyone checked the Billy West Forum Yet, There is a thread on there about this, and billy occasionally checks the threads according to the site's FAQ.

i've just found this on a website:

The recently aired final new episode of Futurama brought to a close to the zany interplanetary adventures of Fry, Bender, Leela and the rest of the Planet Express crew.

Or did it?

With Futurama producing solid ratings on Cartoon Network and strong sales of the show on two DVD sets, could the door be open for a return of Futurama? In an exclusive interview with the show's co-creator, David X. Cohen, we found out that the show's creative team hasn't given up their hopes that something could happen someday.

"For my personal wishes I would look at a movie," answers Cohen at the prospect of new Futurama stories. "Thatís what Iím aiming for. I know itís kind of a longshot I guess at this point but on the other hand it, to me it seems like a no-brainer that it would be a success because it would be not that expensive as far as animated movies go. Thereís an audience already built-in worldwide for this thing because the movie could easily show in Europe, in Australia, the United States, Mexico. To me it seems that it would be very easy to make your money back on a Futurama movie. And any movie executives reading this right now I recommend that you take out your calculators and look at what Iím saying because itís true!

And Cohen's chief cohort feels the same way. "Whenever I say we should do a movie Matt Groening always says ĎA series of movies!í so I know heís into it. Nothingís out of the question. I think that because of the success on Cartoon Network the people are raising an eyebrow. So maybe there is something else that we can do with the show whereas a few months ago I would have said, ah, you know, weíre done for."

To find out more about what Cohen had to say about a possible Simpsons/Futurama crossover, as well as his thoughts on the show on DVD and where you can find (and play!) a "lost episode", be sure to read Part One and Part Two of Cinescape's exclusive interview with Futurama co-creator David X. Cohen.

I remember reading that about two years ago. Are they claiming it's a recent article?

EDIT: I see they're not. Well, I wouldn't go by an article almost two years old. It's pretty common knowledge that David X. and Matt have been pushing for a movie, and it probably would have been greenlit by now.

That article is nice, but it's almost 2 years old now.  The biggest question is whether or not Groening and DXC are still trying to pursue a movie or anything.  I just hope they haven't given up all together.  :/

This better bloody be true! I mean if it is I'll believe in God! Even though i actaully do but are we thinking realistically... Like we're all Futurama fans and if Matt Groening says theres gonna be 2 futurama DVD movies from a guy 1 guy wouldn't it be more spread out like The media does love Futurama they'd hear about this.

Anyway... If Matt says he has the scripts he just has the scripts. It might not pass through. He needs to get the scripts looked at by a production Company and they will put in question Fox CANCELLED the greatest sci fi comedy ever made will it be popular enough so will it be made who knows and what I just said would have probably not made sense!

Well, it looks like at least Billy West has been made aware of this whole rumor, and that he's going to consult DXC about it himself:

The rumors about a Futurama movie can be substantiated by my friend and director David X. Cohen.I'll see what he says.

So hopefully we'll get closure to this one soon.  I'm also hoping that if this is all false (most probably), we'll perhaps see what DXC thinks of the state of the series right now.  Oh yeah, original post is here

And incidentally, Andy, no there aren't any unaired Futurama episodes.  You could have asked here.
