New “Sesame Street” Film in the Works
20th Century Fox acquired the film rights, and Shawn Levy is slated to produce.
This will be Sesame Street’s third turn at the big screen, with 1985’s Follow That Bird starring Chevy Chase and John Candy, and The Adventures of Elmo in Grouchland in 1999.
Debuting in 1969, Sesame Street was created by television producer, Joan Ganz Cooney and Carnegie Foundation vice president, Lloyd Morrisett. Jim Henson was hired on to provide puppeteering. By 2008, it was estimated that 77 million Americans had watched the show at some point in their childhood. Presently, it is broadcast in more than 150 countries.
Levy produced the forthcoming, The Watch, starring Jonah Hill, Ben Stiller, and Vince Vaughn. The script was penned by writing duo, Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg. The Watch is slated for release on July 27th.
The controversial actor has reported a "scheduling conflict" that will make him absent from the New York premiere of 'Nymphomaniac'.
