Happytime Murders: THIS MUST HAPPEN!!

Postby Jim_Thomas » Thu Oct 14, 2010 9:12 am


A dark comedy thriller directed by Jim Henson’s son, set in a puppet dystopia, is in the works at Lionsgate, according to The Hollywood Reporter. . . Brian Henson’s Happytime Murders – which is not directly related to the Muppets and not, it seems, meant for kids — sounds like it’ll really give the Henson name some new cool cred, too. The script tells of a world where humans and puppets co-exist, though the puppets are second-class citizens. The puppet cast of a 1980s kids’ show called The Happytime Gang starts getting murdered one by one, prompting an alcoholic former-cop puppet to take the case with his ex-partner, a human. A little bit Roger Rabbit, a little bit Avenue Q, a lot awesome if they get it just right.

God wants this to happen. I will gladly sacrifice Mancini to make it so.

Maybe even just a hint of watchmen...

Yes please!
