A coming of age story told through the eyes of a precocious 10-year old boy who lives with his grandmother in turbulent 1969 Argentina. Estranged from his eccentric parents, young Valentin yearns for a real family and dreams about being an astronaut. He befriends a recluse neighbor, forms an unlikely friendship with one of his father’s many ex-girlfriends and sets out to discover the harsh realities about his parents, all the while bringing joy and wisdom into the lives of the adults around him.
‘Forgetting Sarah Marshall’ actor/screenwriter Jason Segel and its director Nick Stoller are teaming again to create the next Muppet movie.
It is reported that they signed on to the project based on their latest film ‘Sarah Marshall’; in the film, Segel’s character writes a ‘Dracula’ musical performed by Puppets. The puppets were custom made by the Henson geniuses. Segel took the chance to pitch a concept to the Muppets, and the rest will be history.
Segel and Stoller will write the script and Stoller will direct.
