Fraggle Rock movie a go with script from ‘Rango’ writers
Jim Henson’s 1983 musical puppet series, Fraggle Rock, will soon be heading to the big screen. New Regency has hired Jim Byrkit, the co-writer of Rango, and Alex Manugian, a former executive at Cartoon Network, to create the script for the Fraggle Rock movie.
Rumors about a Fraggle Rock movie have been circulating for years but the movie has never gotten past the planning stages.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, New Regency is finally ready to take a gamble on the Jim Henson creation. Little is known about the script but it should be pretty loyal to the original since it is being produced by The Jim Henson Company and the Montecito Picture Company.
