Kendrick Lamar’s long-gestating film project with South Park‘s Trey Parker and Matt Stone now has a theatrical release date at Paramount.

Variety reports that the project by Lamar, Dave Free, Parker and Stone will come to theaters July 4, 2025. Paramount CEO Brian Robbins, who announced the film during CinemaCon, called the script “one of the funniest and most original scripts we’ve ever read and it’s certain to create some fireworks.”

Plot details originally reported by Shadow and Act in 2022 have been changed in the time between then and now. Now, the film is simply being described by Paramount to Shadow and Act as a “live-action comedy.” Variety also reports an update since their last report, stating that Paramount told them that the film has the “involvement of top-shelf talent.”

Production on the film with its original plotline was originally set to start in the spring of 2022, with Lamar and Free producing via pgLang and Parker and Stone producing via Park County. Robbins also had glowing things to say about the project back in 2022, saying at the time how Paramount and ViacomCBS were excited to usher in “the first theatrical collaboration from these creative visionaries, and galvanizing audiences worldwide around a powerful storytelling experience.”

UPDATE 4/11/2024: Paramount has updated with clarification that the film’s plotline has changed and is now just billed as a “live-action comedy.”
