'Fraggle Rock' Feature in Works for Weinsteins


The Weinstein Company will take the 1980s Jim Henson property Fraggle Rock to the theaters in live-action musical form, reports Variety. Just as Forgetting Sarah Marshall director and star Nick Stoller and Jason Segel have been lined up by Disney to oversee another Muppet Movie, the Weinsteins have entrusted the cave-dwelling Fraggles to a relatively unproven talent in Cory Edwards, who has but the 2005 animated feature, Hoodwinked! to his credentials as a director. In the film, the Fraggles – consisting of characters from the original production – will be removed from their natural habitat and interact with humans, who mistake them for aliens. Edwards will also write the screenplay for the Jim Henson Company produced feature.
