The film is also a co-production with The Jim Henson Company, who will provide the puppets for the film too. Here’s a look at the intriguing plot.

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.?

Todd Berger, Dee Austin Robertson, and Erich and Jon Hoeber wrote the script for the film, and Brian Henson will direct. No further information is available other than that at this time, but we’ll keep you posted.
