Rumours of The Happytime Murders have been going on for years.
Devised by Brian Henson (son of Jim Henson) back in 2008 this project was to be an R-rated puppet project. Now it seems the project is moving forward. The IMDB lists it as being in development and various film websites are noting its progress and change of writers.
Where humans and puppets coexist
The movie is set in a world where humans and puppets coexist, although the puppets are treated as second-class citizens. When the former stars of the kids’ show The Happytime Gang start being bumped off, it takes a washed-up private eye puppet, and his former human partner at the LAPD, to solve the case.
The 2012 script came from Todd Berger. The new script is by Erich Hoeber and Jon Hoeber, who wrote Red, and Red 2. Brian Henson said The Happytime Murders will “take puppets to a place where we have never gone before on the big screen” .
STX Entertainment are home the new home to the project. Details can be found here.
