The other week “South Park” creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker mentioned in an interview they’d eventually like to do a film adaptation of their Tony Award-winning musical “The Book of Mormon”.
The key word there was ‘eventually’, one many ignored – to the point that a lot of people thought that it meant a film was already in the works.
Parker confirms to The Hollywood Reporter that no film is even in development, and the confusion was over reaction to their earlier interview comments – “We said, ‘Yeah, I think we could do a Book of Mormon movie,’ and they were like, ‘Book of Mormon Movie! it’s coming!'”.
Parker added “We did a stage show and it worked out way better than we ever thought, and we’d like it to be that for a while, you know, without contaminating it with a movie.”
