New Regency has signed Rango‘s Jim Byrkit and Alex Manugian to pen the script to a film based on Jim Henson’s 1980s children’s show Fraggle Rock.
New Regency, the studio behind the Alvin and the Chipmunks revival, has struck a deal to bring Jim Henson’s Fraggle Rock to the big screen.
When you think of Fraggle Rock, certain words spring to mind: “Cute,” perhaps. “Doozer,” maybe. “Uncle Traveling Matt,” definitely. But “edgy”? Not in the slightest… which is why I’m worried about the movie revival of the franchise.
