How About a New Sesame Street Movie?

Filed under: News — Ryan Roe @ 10:59 pm


Here’s some big news: According to The Hollywood Reporter, 20th Century Fox is developing a new Sesame Street movie.

There are hardly any details so far, but the Reporter article says Sesame head writer/Murray Monster performer Joey Mazzarino will be writing the script, while Shawn Levy will be co-producing.  Levy has had some hits with the family-friendly Night at the Museum movies, so I’ll go ahead and bet three dollars right now that he’ll end up directing as well.

The Reporter also says: “It is likely that Sesame Workshop… would be involved in a producer capacity as well.”  My reaction: Well, I should hope so.

So now it’s time for the fun part: Rumors and speculation!  Which characters will be prominently featured in the movie?  Will it be aimed squarely at the young’uns like Elmo in Grouchland, or will it be have a more general-audiences feel like Follow That Bird?  Will it even get made?  I can’t wait to find out!

Thanks to Tough Pigs’ own Kenny for the alert!  Click here to be written by Joey Mazzarino on the Tough Pigs forum!
