South Park starts at the end of this month but that doesn’t mean its creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker aren’t still promoting the hell out of their hit Broadway show Book of Mormon which is set to go on tour this fall/winter. That said, LA MAG recently had a chance to talk with the creators about Mormonism, creating the show, and what I thought was most interesting what could be in the future for Matt and Trey in terms of upcoming projects:
Are you considering another musical and if so what would it be?
Trey: It would be a movie probably. For Matt and I doing a stage musical for the first time, it’s just crazy the lack of finality. It’s like having a child. You agree to have this child, but now the child’s out there in the world and if you don’t pay attention to it, the child’s going to start acting up. It wants to do its own thing, but you’ve got to somehow try to control it without completely making it yours all the time.
Matt: And for the first three years, it shits its pants all the time.
Trey: Then you leave it alone for a few years and it starts getting into drugs, doing bad things.
Matt: You’ve got to whip it back into shape. It’s much more like having a kid than a movie or a TV show, which gets put on DVD and you’re done.
Trey: They don’t shit their pants. They don’t talk back.
Robert: With a theater child, you have to eventually disown it. Just say, I have no son.
We already know about a potential Book of Mormon film but could Comedy Central’s dynamic duo be up to no good??? I friggin’ hope so!
