The new film from the creators of South Park is going to get some big reactions
Kendrick Lamar and South Park creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker are teaming up for the movie.
Since launching in 1997, South Park has become known for tackling particularly thorny subject matters and its creators look set to carry this over into the new project they are working on.
According to Variety, rapper Kendrick Lamar and South Park co-creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker have signed on to produce a film together for Paramount Pictures.
Written by South Park's Vernon Chatman, the untitled live-action comedy is described as depicting "the past and present coming to a head".
This occurs "when a young Black man, who is interning as a slave re-enactor at a living history museum, discovers that his white girlfriend’s ancestors once owned his.”
It has not been announced who will direct or star in the film yet but production is set to commence this spring.
News of the project comes after it was announced in 2021 that Matt Stone and Trey Parker had signed a phenomenal $900 million contract with ViacomCBS for the next six years.
Under the deal, the pair are to create six more seasons of South Park, as well as 14 new South Park movies.
Two of the films have been released so far: South Park: Post Covid and South Park: Post Covid: The Return of Covid.
