For Fraggle Rock fans the wait could be over – after Joseph Gordon-Levitt revealed he is set to produce and star in the upcoming movie.
The film – based on the hit 1980s TV series created by Jim Henson – has been in the pipeline for nearly a decade.
However, the cave-dwelling Muppets, including Gobo, Wembley, Mokey and Red, look set to bring their famous songs and run-ins with a family of furry giants to the big screen.
Gordon-Levitt said in a statement: “The first screen personas I ever loved were Henson creations, first on Sesame Street, and then on Fraggle Rock
“Jim Henson’s characters make you laugh and sing, but they’re also layered, surprising, and wise. From Oscar the Grouch, to Yoda, to the Fraggles.
“I’ve never stopped loving his work, even as a young frisky man, and on into adulthood.
“Collaborating with Lisa Henson makes me confident we can do something that Jim would have loved. I’m grateful and excited to be working with New Regency on this project.”
