Brian Henson Is Up For Some Happytime Murders

THR reports that Brian Henson is set to direct the Happytime Murders a comedic film noir murder mystery.

Written by Todd Berger from a story by Dee Austin Robertson and Berger, the story takes place in a world where humans and puppets co-exist, with the puppets viewed as second-class citizens. When the puppet cast of an '80s children's TV show called "The Happytime Gang" begins to get murdered one by one, a disgraced LAPD detective-turned-private eye puppet -- with a drinking problem, no less -- takes on the case.

Brian Henson, Lisa Henson and Jason Lust are producing.
