Weinsteins Get Down In Fraggle Rock

The Weinstein Co. will turn the Jim Henson series “Fraggle Rock” into a live-action musical feature reports Variety.

Just like the 80’s TV series, the film will be populated by a mix of human characters and Fraggle Rock puppets including the core characters of Gogo, Wembley, Mokey, Boober and Red.

Strong sales figures for the release of the first three seasons on DVD are said to have been a contributing factor into why this film is heading into production.

Cory Edwards (“Hoodwinked”) will direct and write the picture which the Jim Henson Co. will produce and the Weinsteins will distribute.
