Joseph Gordon-Levitt Will Bring 'Fraggle Rock' to Life!

Joseph Gordon-Levitt has signed on to star and produce the upcoming film Fraggle Rock, which is a live-action adaptation of the late Jim Henson‘s musical puppet series!

“The first screen personas I ever loved were Henson creations, first on Sesame Street, and then on Fraggle Rock,” the 34-year-old actor shared in a statement.

He added, “Jim Henson’s characters make you laugh and sing, but they’re also layered, surprising, and wise. From Oscar the Grouch, to Yoda, to the Fraggles. I’ve never stopped loving his work, even as a young frisky man, and on into adulthood. Collaborating with Lisa Henson makes me confident we can do something that Jim would have loved. I’m grateful and excited to be working with New Regency on this project.”
