South Park Creators to make a new movie

LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - After ridiculing Saddam Hussein in the animated feature "South Park: Bigger Longer & Uncut," the cartoon's creators are taking on terrorism, marionette-style, in a new film project.

Trey Parker and Matt Stone are writing the untitled project, previously known as "American Heroes," which Paramount Pictures is expected to distribute. Parker and Stone will direct and voice the film as well.

According to several sources, the project in development is a marionette movie about superheroes on a mission to eradicate such things as terrorism and certain celebrities who have outworn their welcome in the public eye.

Neither Paramount nor the film's producer, Scott Rudin, would comment. But the "South Park" creators revealed in March that they were working with Rudin, an executive producer on "Uncut," on a "top secret movie."

"We are working with Scott Rudin," Parker said at that time. "We just got the deal for it. We're gonna write this movie for him this summer. That's how we're gonna spend our vacation time."

Added Stone: "It'll be animated ... but won't have anything to do with 'South Park."'

Parker and Stone most recently created an animated segment called "A Brief History about the United States of America," illustrating the role that violence has played in the country's history, which was featured in Michael Moore's Oscar-winning documentary "Bowling for Columbine."

It is a well known fact that Trey Parker and Matt Stone are Republicans, so I wonder how they'll do it. It will be nice to let Republicans have their movie.

I think everything they do is funny, including Baseketball(?). So, I''m looking forward to it!

South Park is funny as hell....say what you will about it, but at least they make fun of everything equally.

Yeah I personally cant wait, every movie theyve ever made has been hilarious.

They may be Republican, but they make fun of everything so I dont know how it would really matter what thier views are.

I think South Park is the most consistently right wing show on TV, outside the ravings that take place on the 24 hour news channels. It has a stronger and more overt political subtext than most any other fictional show on tv. However, South Park''s politics seem rooted in a very moderate and also libertarian wing of Republican ideology.

50 or 60 years ago, many aspects of that ideology would have been considered dangerously radical and subversive.

They may be Republican, but they make fun of everything so I dont know how it would really matter what thier views are.

They do make fun of everyone but they do it with a Republican outlook.

Which isn''t bad at all, provides for a lot of fun and the series have been running for quite some time now.

Yes, I believe that they accurately portrayed the Republican view that Heaven should be bombed because they are harboring weapons of mass destruction up there.
