Simpsons film follow-up 'not yet'

The prospect of a follow-up to The Simpsons movie is a distant one, the cartoon serial's creator has said.

Speaking at a TV industry event in Cannes, Matt Groening said: "I suppose someday there might be a sequel, but not yet."

The first film version of the US TV animation took four years to make and was a box office hit in 2007.

Groening was presented with an icon award at the Mipcom conference and given a key to the French resort.
