South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone have been working on Team America, a movie in which all the parts will be played by marionettes. It sounds like fun, but as the heavily hyped disaster flick The Day After Tomorrow rolls into theaters, I find myself missing the film that might have been.
"It started when we got snuck a script of The Day After Tomorrow, that Roland Emmerich movie about how global warming causes an ice age in two days," Stone told E! Online last summer. "It's the kind of script where you know it's going to make hundreds of millions of dollars, which makes it the greatest dumb script ever.
"We planned to secretly shoot that movie with puppets, word for word, and release it on the same day. We thought that would have been hilarious, but our lawyer convinced us we wouldn't get it released."
