South Park Live action!! anyone??

Postby Linkknight1234 » Mon Dec 08, 2008 10:58 pm

I have emailed to the Q an A asking if South Park Studios has thought of doing a live action movie or episode of south park. They did not answer my question, which is why i am "putting it out there" in the forum. Im just wondering if anyone else thinks that a live action version of south park sounds interesting.

If it was made into a live action I would hope it could be a movie. The kids could find a portal to the real world making the town of South Park (which is really a county) a real town in our modern day. since south park is so much of the opposite of the real world then the citizens of south park would find living by real world standards very hard. Like when kenny always dies, no one seems to care, but in a real world version of kenny dying the police of Colorado seriously do something about it and Kennys death makes it on the news. Anyways im just curious about what other people think.

There already is plenty of action mate.
Try these episodes "Wing", "Two Days before The Day after Tomorrow" , "The Snuke", "Something Wal-mart comes this way", "Best friends forever", "Volcano", "Do the handicapped go to hell?" , "Trapped in the closet" Even The south park MOVIE B.L.U was full of action.

I dont know what kind of action your talking about. Im guessing Fire, Bullets, Screaming, yelling, blood etc. Pretty much every episode i mentioned had most or some of that. And the list goes on! What else can you want?
EDIT: Oh and with the Q & A thing, ask a really not needed question, get no answer. They only pick out the good ones or your question has probably been answered already, check the FAQ archive.

When I said live action. I meant having human actors play the parts of the characters in the show.

You mean like in the Simpson's, when Homer left the 2-D world and became 3-D with real, live actors? Only have real, live actors play the SP roles?

What he means is actual actors onscreen playing the roles, and I sure as hell can't see that happening. Sure, the adults will work out fine, but the kids, not so much. I know Matt and Trey can't see actors carrying around huge heads to make it look more like the show.

A 3D version of the show might be interesting. A few people made videos like that 10 years ago, and I haven't seen anything similar since.

Oh it could happen!

Im saying that all of South Park would be played by actors. The four main characters could open dimension portal and make all of South Park live in the Real world. They would find out that the same rules they were living by can not work in the real world. That people cant just be shot down and people cant just live in harmony in spite of all the chaos going on. Of course by the end of the movie, the four main characters cant accept the new world they are living in, and say, "f*ck that" and they try to find a way to make south park animated again and they try to restore the chaos. And by the end of the movie they do find a way to make things the way things were and then its happy ending. Im sure a lot of people would find this entertaining.

Admittedly, I would love to see this (I want to play Henrietta!) but considering most of the characters are created by one work-a-holic...I dunno.

I am talking 100% actors. Of course the beginning and end have to have animations. In the beginning its animated until the boys unlock the dimension portal and then at the end when the boys restore South Park just the way things were. If the canadians in really life have flappy heads that would be funny. Id be for that. but when the kids try to make Mr. Hankey they find that all he ever was was an inanimate peice of sh*t. Jesus in southpark would have to have one of those halos that you can wear like a hat. Wouldnt it be hilarious to find out what Mr. garrison would look like in human form? Too bad chef isnt chef in the show anymore, I would love to see his part acted out.

Nah, I personally don't think it's a good idea. Not an official movie anyway. The poorly animated 2D construction-paper art is what helps give the show it's distinct charm. :P

It would be virtually impossible to cast Stan, Kyle, Cartman and Kenny. They would probably get into trouble for casting children and putting them the same raw situations the animated characters get put in. Might stir up some controversy and complaints, like Blue Lagoon for a scene with naked children.

Unless they casted teenagers to play the parts, like they did in I Should Have Never Gone Ziplining. (though they weren't teens, they were in there 20s), turn all the kids into teenagers, and change South Park Elementary to South Park High School (to avoid continuity errors). I know it's breaking from the formula, but to me, it's the only way it can be done.

But that's me. If anyone has a better idea, tell me about it.
