Kendrick Lamar is producing a comedy with the creators of South Park

Words: Dylan Murphy

It marks the first feature to come from K. Dot and Dave Free’s multi-disciplinary media company pgLang.

Kendrick Lamar and his business partner Dave Free are teaming up with South Park Creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker to create a new live action film. The yet unnamed movie is written by Vernon Chatman and will stream on Paramount+ with production beginning this Spring.

According to a press release the film will “depict the past and present coming to a head when a young [B]lack man who is interning as a slave reenactor at a living history museum discovers that his white girlfriend’s ancestors once owned his”.

Brian Robbins, president & CEO, Paramount Pictures, said, “On behalf of Paramount Pictures and the wider ViacomCBS family, we look forward to ushering in the first theatrical collaboration from these creative visionaries, and galvanizing audiences worldwide around a powerful storytelling experience.”

The film will be produced by Kendrick Lamar and Dave Free through their company pgLang. The duo revealed news of their new endeavour back in March 2020 and since then Kendrick Lamar also announced that his next album on TDE would be his last.

Lamar and his business partner Free established their multi-disciplinary media company pgLang in 2020. The company serves as a record label, as well as a production and publishing house. The new feature penned by Chatman is their first.

They’ll work alongside Matt Stone and Trey Parker who are best known for being the minds behind South Park.
