The post office Kendrick Lamar Directs Comedy Movie Starring South Park’s Matt Stone and Trey Parker appeared first on Result.
Kendrick Lamar teams up with South Park creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker for a new live-action comedy.
The untitled feature is produced by Lamar and Dave Free under their media company pgLang. Stone and Parker are on board as co-producers, and Paramount Pictures will handle the film’s theatrical and home distribution.
Written by comedian Veron Chatman, the film “will depict the past and present that come to a head when a young black man who is interning as a slave re-enactor at a living history museum discovers that the ancestors of his white girlfriend once owned hers,” according to a press release. Production is expected to begin in spring 2022.
Kendrick Lamar and Dave Fre launched pgLang in 2020. They described it as “a multilingual company, communicating the creative language of this generation through media illustrating the shared experiences that connect us all”. Last year, Lamar announced that his next album would be his last outing via longtime record label Top Dawg Entertainment (TDE), suggesting that future projects would be released under pgLang.
