Jim Henson’s Son to Direct Muppet Noir Film “The Happytime Murders”

Jim Henson’s son Brian Henson has been tapped to direct the film “The Happytime Murders” which will feature a cast of muppets together with several human cast.

Rumor has it that Katherine Heigl will be playing a role in this cool looking film. Oh and here’s the synopsis followed by another concept art featuring the main character Phil.

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.”
