Parker and Stone Prep for Two New Films

Trey Parker and Matt StoneAccording to Variety, "South Park" creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone are set to do two new live-action films with Paramount.

Parker and Stone will first make the high school comedy "My All-American," followed by "Giant Monsters Attack Japan!" - a film that will combine live-action with the Godzilla-type "rubber suit" techniques.

As with their other films, both will work on the scripts with the writers and Parker will direct with Stone producing.

The films will mark a return to live-action for the duo.  They have not helmed a film with "real" actors since the pre-"South Park" features "Cannibal: The Musical!" and "Orgazmo."  (Parker and Stone both starred in the live-action "BASEketball," but did not write or direct it.)

No word on whether or not these films will be musicals, but based on Parker and Stone's track record I think it's a safe bet that "All-American" and/or "Giant Monsters" will have at least a few catchy tunes to warp our poor little minds.  Just when I thought I'd finally gotten that "Now You're A Man" song out of my head.

"All-American" is slated for a 2007 production start, set to coincide with a hiatus from "South Park," which launches its 10th season this week. -- Shannon Nolley
