Geekdom of my Youth…

Entertainment, Movies

So I was looking through the Wikipedia entry for “Fraggle Rock(which is suprisingly thorough) and I read this quote…

In September 2005, it was announced that The Jim Henson Company had begun work on Fraggle Rock: The Movie, with the aim of a release in 2009. The story is said to involve the original Fraggle characters.[1] As of October 2006 this is still current and the BBC reports that the film will be set in the human world with Frank Zappa’s son at the helm. [2] As of October 20, 2006; according to “Henson’s company has hired executive producer Ahmet Zappa (“The Monstrous Memoirs of a Mighty McFearless”) to write a treatment for the film which will be a full-length live-action musical fantasy starring the underground dwellers who venture out into the human world. Henson Co. co-topper Lisa Henson is producing, whilst Brian Henson will exec produce.”

Ok so the Ahmet Zappa part scares me a little, but if the Hensons are executive producers I’m sure it will be fine. 80’s revival worked for the comic industry, lets take it to the theaters.
