The short film has gained several successors on Youtube, making sassy justice a web series of sorts. Now the word on the street is that Stone and Parker originally wanted to turn the short into a feature and the pandemic thwarted those plans.
In early 2020, Stone and Parker were apparently in development on a film version of sassy justice with job title False deep: the movie. The couple spoke with the Los Angeles Times about the unrealized project, with Parker saying, ‘few people know we were one day away from starting production on the first feature film we had done since’Team America: World Police.’ We were going to start filming the day the pandemic stopped everything. It took months and months to prepare for this movie, to just say, “No, it’s over.”
Parker went on to add, “It was going to be ‘Deep Fake: The Movie’. It was about this guy who looked exactly like Trump because we deeply fake Trump’s face on him. And it was this whole thing. funny because of course it ends with Trump just naked and getting put through the wringer and stuff and that’s why it was so funny and so timely Stone also added his two cents on the matter , saying, “We have a fake business deep [called Deep Voodoo], and we have all these fake deep artists working for us. Even though the script was kind of timely, we ended up keeping the deeply fake part of the studio.
In addition to Donald Trump, sassy justice uses deepfakes of Julie Andrews, Michael Caine, Al Gore, Jared Kushner, Ivanka Trump, Chris Wallaceand Mark Zuckerberg. sassy justice was described by Parker as “probably the most expensive YouTube video ever made”.
