The most tasteless third graders on television graduate to the big screen, as Trey Parker and Matt Stone expand their animated series with foul-mouthed humor that might breach the boundaries of basic cable. In the small Colorado town of South Park, good-natured Stan Marsh, slightly neurotic Kyle Broflovski, fat and petulant Eric Cartman, and perpetually doomed Kenny McCormick are psyched for the premiere of the first feature film from flatulent Canadian TV performers Terrance and Phillip,

South Park Duo Land Saddam Hussein Keepsake
South Park creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker still can't believe a signed photo of Saddam Hussein U.S. Marines sent them is for real - but they hope it is.

Legend has it the troops screened the duo's 1999 film South Park: Bigger, Longer and Uncut before the former Iraqi dictator was executed in 2006.

In the film, an animated Hussein is depicted as Satan's gay lover.

Stone says, "We're very proud of our signed Saddam picture and what it means... I have it on pretty good information from the Marines on detail in Iraq that they showed Saddam the movie over and over again, which is a pretty funny thought."

Focus gains Momentum for 'Hamlet 2'

Focus gains Momentum for 'Hamlet 2'
BERLIN -- British entertainment shingle Momentum Pictures has acquired all U.K. rights to the hot Sundance title Hamlet 2, in one of the first big deals of the festival.

The agreement was completed with Universal-based Focus Features, which acquired worldwide rights to the film in January in Park City for a reported $10 million. Focus is selling the picture here in Berlin.

The high school satire centers on American drama teacher Dana Marszh (Steve Coogan), a guy who spends his time name-dropping about time spent on the Mrs. Doubtfire set in a desperate attempt to impress his students. Meanwhile, his marriage to wife, Brie (Catharine Keener), is crumbling away.

The film was directed by Andrew Fleming (Nancy Drew) and co-written by Fleming and Pam Brady, whose credits include South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut and Hot Rod. Momentum also has acquired Hard Candy helmer David Slade's Unthinkable from Sidney Kimmel Entertainment, which also concluded sales on the title to Russia's Top Films.

Unthinkable centers on the interrogation of a man who knows the location of three nuclear weapons set to detonate in the U.S.

'The Simpsons' May Hit the Silver Screen

  • WENN
Production bosses are finally bringing The Simpsons to the big screen after years of trying - but they're refusing to divulge any details about the project. According to creator and writer James L Brooks, an idea has been accepted which will see the family from the hit TV series - Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa and Maggie - hit the big screen in the next few years. But As Good As It Gets director Brooks is keen to keep the project under wraps, because it's only in its infant stage. He says, "We've got a very good and interesting idea, and it's different from the show. You know, it's like the South Park movie where it's just a bigger, longer, amplified version of the show. I can't tell you anything specific about it. My wife doesn't even know the secret." Fellow writer Mike Reiss adds, "It's been 13 years of wanting to do The Simpsons movie. Finally Fox said, 'Let's just do it!' We never had the greatest idea that was compelling but Fox said, 'Maybe if we start paying you, you'll get inspired.' And sure enough, it worked!"

South Park Creator Gets His Revenge On Phil Collins

South Park Creator Gets His Revenge On Phil Collins
South Park: Bigger, Longer and Uncut (1999) writer Trey Parker's joy at winning an MTV award for BEST MUSICAL PERFORMANCE was eclipsed by his delight that Oscar- winner Phil Collins wasn't even nominated. Parker, who with South Park co-creator Matt Stone carried off an award for their song UNCLE F**KA, said he was delighted to be able to get his own back on Collins, who beat him to an Oscar earlier this year with his songs for the DISNEY film Tarzan (1999). Parker says, "The great thing is that Phil Collins wasn't even nominated. Phil has been calling me every week showing off about his Oscar. But it fits Phil has the little bald guy and I have the popcorn." Parker adds the MTV awards are much cooler than the Oscars anyway, as the voters tend to be more hip - and they could enjoy it more as they were less drunk. He laughs, "The people voting for this are under 70 whereas the ACADEMY AWARDS are a little different... And we're less drunk. We were so f**ked up when we got to the Oscars. Literally 20 minutes into it, we were like, 'we've got to go.' And we were wearing dresses as well which wasn't easy."
