Those wacky guys from South Park are at it again. Well, they’ve really just be at it for a while now, but now all of Trey Parker and Matt Stones work will be made under their new studio, Important Studios. One assumes that the things they will make under this newly founded studio will be important… and most likely funny.
The studio has $300 million dollars in backing mostly from their massive amounts of money from South Park and the Broadway musical Book of Mormon, which pulls in $1.6 million every week from New York shows alone. Speaking of one of the ways that Parker and Stone are richer than us, a film version of Book of Mormon will most likely be the studios first project.
Parker and Stone have never been too curtailed by “the man” it seems, but with their own studio they’ll be even less so. This should be interesting.[via The New York Times]
