THE SKINNY: There’s not a lot of info about Trey Parker and Matt Stone’s next project, but what is out there is pretty exciting:
IESB.net has gotten hold of something called “the Black List”, a compilation of suggestions by over 150 film executives and high-level assistants. Each of these folks gave the names of up to ten of their favorite scripts written in 2007, and one of these scripts was Parker and Stone’s upcoming Paramount project, GIANT MONSTERS ATTACK JAPAN! The movie has been announced for release next year, and all anyone knew up till now is that it would be PG-rated.
The synopsis of J.F. Lawton’s script (which can be found in the “2 votes” category) is as follows: “Prompted by a corporate transfer, a father and son move to Japan and find that all the fantastic elements of the son’s favorite Japanese movies – Godzilla, giant robots, secret ninja cults, etc. – are a real and borderline mundane aspect of everyday Japanese life. Adjusting proves difficult, hijinks ensue.”
So, it’s a documentary, then.
