The Muppets Are Making A Super-Dark Detective Film And It Looks Amazing

The Muppets Are Making A Super-Dark Detective Film And It Looks Amazing

An R-rated Muppets is in the works and it looks absolutely amazing:

The Happytime Murders is definitely going to show fans a different side to their favourite puppets, showing the puppets as drug-taking, foul-mouthed, gun-toting gamblers, perverts and killers.

There's even a bizarre puppet sex-scene complete with Silly String to watch out for, but perhaps the most disturbing thing of all is seeing a Muppet with legs. Have you ever seen anything so strange?

For those of us who grew up watching The Muppet Christmas Carol and Muppet Treasure Island, The Happytime Murders is probably going to be essential viewing, if not a bit childhood-ruining.

According to the film's official synopsis: "No Sesame. All Street. The Happytime Murders is a filthy comedy set in the underbelly of Los Angeles where puppets and humans coexist.

"Two clashing detectives with a shared secret, one human (Melissa McCarthy) and one puppet, are forced to work together again to solve the brutal murders of the former cast of a beloved classic puppet television show."

The movie also stars Maya Rudolph, Joel McHale and Leslie David Bake.

The Happytime Murders is directed by Brian Henson - Jim's son - with a screenplay by Todd Berger.

Henson told SyFy: "I'm working right now on The Happytime Murders, which is a wild, R-rated puppets-and-people crime thriller set in Hollywood.

"It's a really cool and weird and wonderful piece. And it's R-rated so it's really odd for me. But I'm really enjoying doing it."

And I think I speak for all of us when I say, we're looking forward to seeing it and smashing our childhoods to smithereens.

The trailer was first shared during the previews ahead of Deadpool 2 and fans are already getting very excited:



The Happytime Murders is set to hit the big screen on 17 August, so we haven't go too long to wait.
