The movie landscape just got 100% more cute. EW is reporting that Joseph Gordon-Levitt is going to produce and star in the upcoming live-action Fraggle Rock movie.
Joseph Gordon-Levitt must have left a good impression on the Muppets after his participation in 2013’s Lady Gaga & the Muppets’ Holiday Spectacular, because he’s set to produce and star in the upcoming Fraggle Rock movie, EW confirms.
Fraggle Rock is the film adaptation of a Canadian TV series by the same name that debuted in 1983. The show features a society of cave-dwelling Muppets called Fraggles who live in Fraggle Rock alongside the ant-like Doozers and furry giant Gorgs.
How are they even going to fit a human in the Fraggle caves? He'll wreck all of the Doozer's tubes!
Gordon-Levitt has been filming the movie Snowden, where he's set to play the titular role as the NSA contractor turned whistleblower. There's no release date yet for the Fraggle Rock movie.
