You can add Sesame Street to the list of Jim Henson-created properties getting the film treatment in the wake of Disney’s success with The Muppets. The beloved children’s series will join Fraggle Rock on the fast track to the big screen, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The film, based on the show that debuted in 1969, will be written by Joey Mazzarino, a longtime writer and showrunner on Sesame Street. Shawn Levy, director of the Night at the Museum films, Real Steel and the upcoming Monster Problems will act as producer on the film set up at 20th Century Fox.
