Everything old is new again …
Children of the 1980s rejoice: A ‘Fraggle Rock‘ movie is happening.
It’s long been rumored that a Fraggle movie starring Gobo, Mokey, Wembley, Boober and Red had been in the works, but attempts to transform the Jim Henson-produced Canadian ’80s television series into a feature-length film always seemed to hit snag after snag.
But: good news! The Hollywood Reporter says, “Rango co-writer Jim Byrkit and Alex Manugian have been happed to pen the script for Fraggle Rock.”
In their lives are a race of small industrious creatures named Doozers, who live in the caves, and the Gorgs, furry giants who look at Fraggles as nuisances.
A feature has long been in the works at other companies with the property being set up at New Regency in 2011.
The Jim Henson Co. and the Montecito Picture Co. are producing.
So get ready to dance your cares away down at Fraggle Rock.[Hollywood Reporter/The Daily What]
