According to Deadline, Kendrick Lamar will produce a comedy film with South Park co-creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker. The film was written by American stand-up comedian Vernon Chatman for Paramount Pictures. 

The film’s narrative reads: “The past and present come to a head when a young black man who is interning as a slave reenactor at a living history museum discovers that his white girlfriend’s ancestors once owned his”.

Paramount Pictures CEO Brian Robbins has expressed the production company looks forward to welcoming the collaboration between Lamar and the South Park creators.
