Two of my favorite things IN LIIIIIIIIFE: Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Fraggle Rock are reportedly coming together for a movie. Yes! THERE IS A GOD! Variety reports that my future husband is currently working with Lisa Henson, daughter of the late Jim Henson, to produce AND STAR IN a Fraggle Rock film for the big screen.
“Jim Henson’s characters make you laugh and sing, but they’re also layered, surprising, and wise,” Gordon-Levitt said in a statement. “Collaborating with Lisa Henson makes me confident we can do something that Jim would have loved. I’m grateful and excited to be working with New Regency on this project.”
Pardon me while I FLOP ON THE FLOOR AND SQUEAL IN ANTICIPATION!
From The Verge:
Fraggle Rock, which debuted back in 1983, followed the musical lives of the creatures that inhabit the eponymous Fraggle Rock. Fraggle Rock: The Movie has been in development since 2005, when the Jim Henson Company officially announced that it was working on a film adaptation with the original cast. However, the film fell into a long development hell, with the property being snapped up by New Regency after the distribution deal with the Weinstein Company expired in 2011. Hopefully signing Gordon-Levitt means things can really get on their way.
