First glimpse of THE HAPPYTIME MURDERS

The first artistic rendition has been released from the upcoming THE HAPPYTIME MURDERS.

In a world where puppets co-exist with humans as second class citizens, puppet private eye and disgraced ex-cop, Phil Phillips, is hot on the trail of the serial killer who murdered his brother and is now targeting the cast members of the famous 80s television show, “The Happytime Gang.” As the killings continue, Phil’s former flame, Jenny, is next on the list. It’s up to Phil and his ex-partner, Detective Edwards, to find the culprit, but as bad blood and old resentments resurface the clues start pointing to the only viable suspect, Phil himself. Now he’s on the run with only his wits and hard headed determination, as he tries to solve, “The Happytime Murders.”

Brian Henson and the Muppet crew are on board with a screenplay from Todd Berger (Kung Fu Panda). Brian is directing and he and Lisa, his sister, are producing. Sadly, it looks like Katherine Heigl will be starring. How many really crappy films does she have to do before folks stop hiring her? Looking at the careers of Nicole Kidman and Gwyneth Paltrow, I guess many more.

Having grown up on not just Sesame Street, but the greatness that was THE MUPPET SHOW, I dream of a time where the Muppets rise back to their late 70s level.
