2022 has been pegged the year Kendrick Lamar Duckworth A.K.A Kendrick Lamar will make his return to the music scene with a new collection following up 2017’s Pulitzer Prize-winning DAMN.

As stated by Deadline, the rapper is entering the film business by co-producing an incoming live-action film for Paramount Pictures along with his previous long-term director Dave Free and South Park co-makers Matt Stone and Trey Parker.

The untitled movie which was written by Vernon Chatman, is about a young Black man interning as a slave reenactor at a living history museum who discovers that his white girlfriend’s ancestors once owned his.

“On behalf of Paramount Pictures and the wider ViacomCBS family, we look forward to ushering in the first theatrical collaboration from these creative visionaries, and galvanizing audiences worldwide around a powerful storytelling experience,” said Paramount Pictures’ President & CEO, Brian Robbins.

The Emmy-award winning writer, director, producer and voice actor, Vernon Chatman is best known for creating Adult Swim’s Wonder Showzen and Xavier: Renegade Angel, as well as voicing Towelie, the weed-smoking talking towel on South Park.

Chatman has existing Hip Hop ties having worked with Killer Mike and Snoop Dogg on Trigger Warning With Killer Mike and Doggie Fizzle Televizzle, respectively. He was also a writer for The Chris Rock Show.

Kendrick Lamar and Dave Free are creating the film for their pgLang organization, which they sent off in 2020, while Matt Stone and Trey Parker are delivering for Park County. Production is set to start this spring, albeit a chief still can’t seem to be named.

The movie is expected to hit theaters and be available to stream on Paramount+
