Godzilla!

Would you have ever guessed that Matt Stone and Trey Parker, the creators of South Park, would be working with Nickelodeon to produce a G-rated movie?! Late last year there was some news of a few projects that the two are working on, one of which is called Giant Monsters Attack Japan!, and is a tribute to Godzilla and other rubber-suited Japanese creatures. The latest news from an interview with the screenwriter J.F. Lawton in LA Times is that they're finally signed on to produce and direct that movie and are planning on making it a PG, or even G-rated, family film.

As with one of their other movies, Team America: World Police and the puppet sex, everyone is unsure of how the MPAA will handle men in rubber suits wrestling. However this time it's whether they'll slap it with a PG or PG-13, not with an NC-17.

"I'm not sure exactly where the ratings board is on monster-to-monster violence, what their reaction is to men in rubber suits wrestling but never getting hurt," Lawton says, laughing.

And even better, the film will contain no CGI effects and will rely solely on actors in rubber suits. The story will be told through the eyes of an 8-year-old who is transplanted to Japan. When he arrives, he discovers that ninjas and enormous creatures are just a part of everyday Tokyo life.

Is this real, or am I dreaming?! Could this soon become the best G-rated movie any adult will ever see?! It's set to arrive sometime next year, but I'll tell you, I really can't wait for it to hit theaters already!!
