Lionsgate To Make Dark "Muppets" Movie


A Muppets movie that has been in production since 2008 might start being made this January by Lionsgate. Happytime Murders is co-written by Brian Henson, the son of Jim Henson, who also wants to direct it.

Heat Vision has the story:
“Happytime” takes place in a world where humans and puppets co-exist, with the puppets viewed as second-class citizens. When the puppet cast of an ’80s children’s TV show called “The Happytime Gang” begins to get murdered one by one, a disgraced LAPD detective-turned-private eye puppet — with a drinking problem, no less — takes on the case with his former human partner. Think “Avenue Q” meets “L.A. Confidential.”


Pretty interesting stuff, if you ask me.
