Yes! Another movie from SOUTH PARK creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker. The downside is that it's still going to be several years before they actually get on it.

The guys want to adapt their broadway hit, THE BOOK OF MORMON for the big screen. The story is about, "a pair of Mormon missionaries attempting to find converts in Uganda." A national tour of the broadway show will start next Summer in Denever, Colorado. Parker said this about the run and made comment of the film, “Hopefully it will have a big run and a big tour and then we can do the movie in several years."

The last time we saw a movie from Parker and Stone was 2004s TEAM AMERICA. Producer Scott Rudin (THE SOCIAL NETWORK) helped the pair on that film as well as SOUTH PARK: BIGGER, LONGER, & UNCUT.

Rudin will definitely be a part of the BOOK OF MORMON film when the time comes according to Stone, “We want to do it some day. The great thing is, a lot of Broadway teams would have to go team up with a Hollywood producer and bring on a Hollywood director, but Trey’s a director and Scott’s a great producer. We’ve all made movies. So it’s kind of cool, it can stay in the same family.”

Fuck yeah!

Trey and Matt are the most important satirists working today. I like that South Park is a way of putting out 5 hours of material per year, so that's certainly worth it as long as they keep feeling passionate about it. But, I would love to get a good 5-10 movies by them after they stop doing South Park. Or maybe they can just please fit more movies in between South Park? Love to see these guys on JoBlo. Thanks, Niki!

Every hero needs a sidekick

Every Captain needs a mate (aye-aye!)
Every meal needs a side dish. (On a slightly smaller plate!)

I had the good fortune to get front row seats for cheap for this amazing show. The only thing I ask is that they keep the two leads. I know Josh Gad has had movie and TV roles before, so it could work.

Great news!

I live in Europe so the chances to see this on Broadway are very little. But I've heard every song of it and loved it! Great music, with intelligent (but South Parkly crude) humor! You go guys!

I'd settle for shitty cam-corder footage if it meant I wouldn't have to wait.

Hurray!

I hope it's with the same cast, if possible.
