Ummmm...is this for real?
What the... Moo York? Fat Fozzie? Is this for real? It's like some weird acid trip.
I just read through some of the first bits, wait a tik, why would there a muppet show promo highlighting the upcoming 20th anniversary of sesame street?
It's a script making the rounds in Hollywood. No announcement has been made in terms of anyone picking it up or producing it.
And incidentally this is a DIFFERENT script than the one that made news a year or two back.
I didn't read it all. Skipped around a little and peeked at the end. Hmmm. Interesting. Lot of errors, and I don't think I like the Moo York and old Muppets bit. And apparently the song "Tenderly" is from The Muppet Movie... but, perhaps with some tweaking and a double-checking of facts it could be good. Dunno. Have to read the whole thing sometime.
Okay, I read through a bit more and it gets better. Just to clarify, is this the Empire film that was announced a while back?
I agree it does get better, but the muppets never aged before, heck kermit is getting pretty old but do you see a walking stick in his hand? NO! And he seems to have aged the best out of all of them so it doesen't make all that much sense when you think about it but its a good script, I'm gonna read more now.
I've read the first half and decidedly don't like it. I've heard so much about the ending that I may read it all the way through, but in my mind this is Not Good.
I wonder, just out of interest, was Jim's brother really killed in an accident? Just asking out of curiosity...
If this IS true, (doubtful... the link has been taken down, but it sounds pretty bad according to the rest who have posted here.) who do you think will play Jim? Probably some unknown, I can't think of many famous people who look like him...
You'd be surprised...
While it's fun to speculate, the fact is we really don't have to worry about anyone playing Jim. This is a DIFFERENT script than the one that made the news a year ago about a Henson biopic being developed. As i understand THIS script gained some attnetion for its writing and has since earned the author actual work on other projects but no studio is presently seriously actually planning to turn this script into an actual film.
Even if one did, they would have to get the backing/approval of the Jim Henson Legacy and Disney to use the Muppets in the film and i can't see either party to allow the Muppets to be used in the Dreamchild manner that Henson used the Alice in Wonderland characters for.
Jeff Daniels and William Hurt could look great as Jim. Would love to see this get made.
(oh and David Cross as Frank Oz = genius)
Yes, he was. That info's in the book "Jim Henson: The Works." Perhaps one of the few truths to be found in this script.
Oh, I read parts of the book before but I didn't know that, how sad. But I did know about his trip away, but now it makes more sense, I read the bit on this script a while ago and haven't read more up to the part where Jim and Jane get married, It does seem like they exaggerated the story a bit though, like I will/would be a bit surprised if the whole bits about that other guy and that other girl, it would be a great idea to put in theaters though, I probably wouldn't watch it if it was too sad though.
I just thought, what does (beat) and (cont'd) mean?
If this film ever does happen, let's just hope that it does Jim and his family and company some serious justice.
Yeah, I wonder what the trailer'd be like?
"In a natural, dull civilation there is a man.... and a frog!"
(beat) is sort of like a pause for effect. (cont'd) means continued.
