"Fraggle Rock" is a children's TV fantasy series created by Jim Henson, featuring a set of his typically whacky muppets as the "Fraggle Rock" characters. The show aired from 1983…
Are you really surprised that the Weinsteins are suspicious of these smiling faces?
Last month, director/screenwriter Corey Edwards started a pissing match with the Weinstein Brothers over a possible new Fraggle movie. In a post on his blog, Edwards claimed that the Weinsteins were searching for a new screenwriter because his version was not "edgy" enough. Now comes word that Edwards and the Weinsteins have cleared the air, probably due to the fact that Edwards is contractually obligated to direct the film. I’ve been able to sit down with Weinstein’s new VP of Development and really talk about their issues with the movie. We’ve had some very good conversations about what they think “edgy” is and what I think “edgy” is. We got down to the philosophies of why to even make a Fraggle movie in the first place. And I think they’ve been able to qualify their word “edgy” with the word “older.” They want this movie to connect with an older, more sophisticated audience. I'm surprised this is even an issue. What can be more "sophisticated" than a bunch of glorified sock puppets singing and dancing in a magical underground world? As the following quote from Jim Henson demonstrates, sophistication is what the Fraggles are all about. "It is a high-energy, raucous musical romp. It's a lot of silliness. It's wonderful." (/Film)
Have you ever watched an episode of "Fraggle Rock" and thought, "Hey, this shit needs to be more f**king edgy and gritty, like I am, beotch!" If so, you're in luck.Director/Screenwriter Corey Edwards has taken to the interwebs to complain that the Weinsteins are squeezing him out of the 'Fraggle' script because his version is “not edgy enough.” I enjoy working with other writers and have no doubt that the RIGHT person could help make any script better. But to not even ask me? Adding insult to injury, the search is basically an open assignment. This means the net has been cast wide, virtually posting in the “classifieds” of the movie business. The Fraggles do not deserve such treatment. Now, I like "Fraggle Rock" as much as the next unoriginal retro-addicted douche bag, but I'm not exactly sure what type of treatment Fraggles "deserve." It's not like we're talking about the regular Muppets, here. If the Weinsteins was to remake Bad Lieutenant with the "Fraggle Rock" gang, I say let 'em. They're animals anyway, so let them lose their souls. (SlashFilm)
