New South Park And Friday The 13th Movies In The Works Thanks To… Chris Nolan?

chris-nolanHere’s an oddity.

So keen were Warner Bros. to get a slice of Interstellar, the new Christopher Nolan sci-fi film they’ve come on board to back with Paramount Pictures, that they’ve given up rights to make new South Park and Friday the 13th movies as part of the deal.

In fact, there seem to be other films and characters wrapped up in the exchange too, but it isn’t yet clear exactly what they are. Any guesses? A Warner Bros. property that they’re just not making the most of and don’t need any more?

Actually, it’s not quite that simple – Friday the 13th and South Park are amongst the properties in question because they were, before the deal was made, in some sense co-owned by Warners and Paramount, and this is just a straightening out of the situation.

But according to The Hollywood Reporter, Paramount only have five years to make their Jason and Cartman movies before Warner Bros. get their slice back and things get tricky again.

This could mean a pair of movies in each series, maybe three if Paramount are really keen, but my best guess is that we’ll be lucky to see one of each.
