The Happytime Muders: Swearing, Sex, Violence, and Muppets
I saw a story about this on IGN last week and forgot to post about it. Apparently Brian Henson is working on an R-rated murder mystery movie with Muppet style puppets. I'm a huge fan of the Hensons' stuff, so I'll definitely be keeping a very close eye on this. But I am a little concerned about whether or not mainstream audiences would go for something like this.
Here's IGN's description:
The Happytime Murders centers on puppet private eye and disgraced ex-cop Phil Phillips, who is tracking down the serial killer who murdered his brother and is now targeting cast members of the famous '80s show The Happytime Gang.
Over the course of many encounters and many years, I have successfully developed a standard operating procedure for dealing with big, nasty monsters. Run away. Me and Monty Python.
