South Park

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone spoke about the show’s recent renewal and revealed that they have some ‘killer ideas’ to make more movies. Here are highlights:

Stone on how much longer they’ll keep doing South Park: “I am 48. Trey turns 50 this year. So I will say that I don’t think we will be doing this show when we’re 60.”

Parker on if they’ll do anything special for the show’s 300th episode: “Well, we did the 200 two-parter, and that was a disaster. We’ve learned the past few years to let the momentum of the season take us.”

Stone on wanting to make more movies: “We think of ourselves as filmmakers, and it’s like, everyone is doing TV now. It’s like, movies, even though the movie business is all fucked up. And everyone will tell you don’t go into movies. We just want to do a movie.”

Parker on the return of ManBearPig last season: “We just felt like, of all of our episodes, that one has not aged very well. And we came up with a funny idea how to use ManBearPig as a parable. I always felt like if we were going to rewrite that or comment on it or atone, whatever you want to call it, it’s in kind. In other words, we didn’t want to say in some interview, ‘Well, we don’t feel so great about that episode.’ It doesn’t feel as good as ‘Fuck that, we’ll do a whole two-parter.’ And it is not just atoning. We beat ourselves up pretty good.”
