R Rated Muppets Movie "The Happytime Murders"
 
There has been talk for the last couple of years about a dark Muppet movie developed by Brian Henson to be released by Lionsgate. Director Todd Berger recently answered some questions about the project at the premiere of his new film, IT'S A DISASTER.

The tone of the film: “I want to try to make the HEAT of puppet movies. I want to be THE DARK KNIGHT or HEAT but in a world where puppets and humans coexist. Brian was like, ‘This mystery actually needs to be interesting so that even if you took all the comedy out of it, it’s still going to be interesting to watch.”

How hard of an R will it be? "It is full-on R. There is swearing, there’s sex, violence, murder. There’s no way. Maybe with some work it could be PG-13 but as of now we’ve embraced the R rating.”

Will we recognize any characters in the film? “Brian has actually already been working on the main character puppet. The Creature Shop has already made a few test puppets that I’ve met in person that are amazing. Then the whole world, because it’s not associated with The Muppets which are owned by Disney, it’s a movie in which puppets and humans coexist and a lot of the supporting characters are all puppets. So they have a puppet improv group called Stuffed & Unstrung that tours around America doing improv shows. They’re going to use a lot of those puppets but they’re also going to create a bunch of new ones. There’s a whole cast of characters in the script that they’re going to create from scratch.”

Sounds like a Muppet version of WHO FRAMED ROGER RABBIT? which is okay by me. I love the aspect of a noir/dark comedy set in this type of world.

Berger also explained the status of his movie version of WHERE'S WALDO? He mentions the plot is under wraps but it will be an adventure story utilizing the trademark red and white striped character

"R-rated Muppets" just reminds me of Meet the Feebles.

This does sound like it could possibly be interesting though.

Sounds good.

I'll just wait for Muppets 2.

This last Muppets movie is within my top 10 of all time.

exactly what I thought. But I don't know if it would even make an R-rating, more like NC-17

Sodomy!
You must think it very odd of me,
But I enjoy the act of sodomy.
You might call the wrath of God on me,
But if you tried it then you might agree,
That you enjoy the act of sodomy.

Don't worry if you feel ashamed,
It's been around for years.
Thousands more than can be named,
Are interested in rears.
Don't worry about hell,
No harm will come to your soul.
We're not all Pentacostal,
But everybody's got an asshole.

Let me tell ya' 'bout sodomy,
You must think it very odd of me,
But I enjoy the act of sodomy.
You might call the wrath of God on me,
But if you tried it then you might agree,
That you enjoy the act of sodomy.

It might just improve your sex,
It's a hard act to follow.
The fact that fundamentalists,
Find difficult to swallow.
So join me as I sing,
Of an activity that's fun.
Open up your ring,
And try it front to bum,
Bum-bum,
Bum-bum-bum-bum-bum-bum-bum-bum-bum.

Sodomy!
You must think it very odd of me,
But I enjoy the act of sodomy.
You might call the wrath of God on me,
But if you tried it then you might agree,
That you enjoy the act of sodomy.

SODOMY!
