Jamie Foxx Solving R-rated Puppet Crimes in ‘The Happytime Murders’?

Published

The Happytime Murders

Jamie Foxx is in early negotiations to star in STX Entertainment and the Jim Henson Company’s raucous comedy The Happytime Murders, which will combine live-action and puppetry made so famous by the Henson family, Deadline is reporting.

The project, which is expected to get an R-rating, will be directed by Brian Henson.

The story follows puppet stars of an iconic TV show The Happytime Gang who are some of the biggest celebrities around. But off-camera, the family-friendly cast leads the kinds of lives that would make a tabloid writer blush. When the Happytime Gang stars begin to be mysteriously murdered, two mismatched detectives – one a type-A, take-no-prisoners human with a secret and the other a crass, hard-drinking puppet with a connection to one of the victims – must put aside their differences to stop the killings and catch the culprit, all the while trying to resist the temptation to murder each other.

The screenplay is by Todd Berger and Dee Robertson, and Erich and Jon Hoeber (Red and Red 2).

Jamie Foxx  stars  in Overture FilmsÕ LAW ABIDING CITIZEN.
