Homer, The Simpsons
The many who went to see Ice Age: The Meltdown
this weekend were treated to a 20-second teaser for the long-rumored feature take on The Simpsons
. The trailer, which opens on a Superman-like "S" logo — only to reveal it's part of Homer's undershirt tag — and touts a July 27, 2007, release, "is running on 7,000 screens, committing us to opening every place in the world on the same date," exec producer James L. Brooks
. "Which means, we'd better get started." As for the top-secret story line, Mike Scully
, who is penning the film with Simpsons
creator Matt Groening
, says, "We've taken script security to the point of lunacy, though it helped that we wrote it in Aramaic."
