The Weinstein Company will turn the Jim Henson series “Fraggle Rock” into a live-action musical feature, reports Variety.
Cory Edwards, who directed the animated Hoodwinked! for TWC, will helm the picture and write the screenplay. The Jim Henson Co. will produce and TWC will distribute.
Just like the series, the film will be populated by a mix of human characters and Fraggle Rock puppets. The movie will take the core characters Gogo, Wembley, Mokey, Boober and Red outside of their home in Fraggle Rock, where they interact with humans, which they think are aliens.
The show premiered on HBO in 1983, ran five seasons and was broadcast in more than 80 countries.
