We have learned that ‘South Park’ creators Matthew Stone & Trey Parker will be directing a new film together that is (tentatively) titled ‘Alma Junction’.
The film will be produced by Scott Rudin through his production company Scott Rudin Productions. The studio previously partnered with Parker & Stone on the ‘South Park’ film ‘South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut’ which follows Stan, Kyle, his stepbrother Ike, Eric, and Kenny who go to see an R-rated movie featuring Canadians. After the kids start cursing, Kyle’s mom Sheila with the rest of the parents pressure the United States to wage war against Canada for World War 3. It’s all up to Stan, Kyle and Cartman to save Terrence and Phillip before Satan and his lover Saddam Hussein from Hell rules the world and it’ll be the end of the whole world.
Scott Rudin Productions has recently worked as the production company on ‘Lady Bird’, ‘Annihilation’, ‘Isle of Dogs’, ‘Uncut Gems’ and ‘The Girl In The Spider’s Web’. The production company is currently working on FX’s ‘Devs’ series, ‘The Woman In The Window’ and ‘Macbeth’. Alex G. Scott will also executive produce ‘Alma Junction’ for Stone & Parker.
It is unknown who the distributor for the film will be as well as what the plot of the film will be. However, given the title of ‘Alma Junction’, we could speculate that it is some sort of story regarding the location of Alma Junction in Park County, Colorado. That or the ‘Alma Junction’ title could be a working title before Trey Parker & Matthew Stone decide on the actual title for the film.
Pawel Pogorzelski will be the cinematographer on the film, he has previously served as cinematographer on ‘Hereditary’ and ‘Midsommar’ for Ari Aster. He recently just nominated for Best Cinematography for his work on ‘Midsommar’ at the Spirit Awards.
Trey Parker & Matthew Stone’s iconic creation ‘South Park’ have been recently involved in a highly-lucrative bidding war where WarnerMedia’s upcoming streaming service HBO Max managed to win the streaming rights for ‘South Park’, a war which reportedly cost them $500 million – $550 million.
