Long-in-development project gets new lease of life.

Jim Byrkit (‘Rango’) and Alex Manugian have been hired to pen the script for the long-in-development big screen reboot of Jim Henson’s beloved 1980s children’s TV show ‘Fraggle Rock.’

An internationally hit for Henson, ‘Fraggle Rock’ followed the adventures of a group of cave-dwelling Muppet-like creatures called Fraggles. While they coexisted peacefully alongside a race of industrious ant-like creatures named Doozers, the Fraggles were looked upon as nuisances by the giant, furry Gorgs who lived above-ground.
