“Hopefully it will have a big run and a big tour and then we can do the movie in several years," Parker, who write the musical with Stone and Avenue Q's Robert Lopez, tells EW.  “The great thing is, a lot of Broadway teams would have to go team up with a Hollywood producer and bring on a Hollywood director, but Trey’s a director and Scott [Rudin] is a great producer. We’ve all made movies. So it’s kind of cool, it can stay in the same family.”

Parker and Stone have teamed up in the past with Rudin on 1993′s Cannibal! The Musical, 1999′s South Park: Bigger Longer & Uncut and 2004′s Team America: World Police.
