Who Will Joseph Gordon-Levitt Play in Joseph Gordon-Levitt's Fraggle Rock Movie?!

The answer: whoever he wants, because he's also producing it!

In news that probably send JGL casting rumor loving Comicbooks.net reporter Gus Sterlingham to the hospital, Joseph Gordon-Levitt has been announced as the producer and star of an upcoming movie adaptation of Fraggle Rock, the Jim Henson puppet show about an underground race of communist muppets that pillage radishes from a family of Gorg farmers and terrorize the indigenous population of Doozers by eating all of their buildings. Fraggle Rock aired on HBO in the 1980s and elsewhere internationally, and is fondly remembered today. Gordon-Levitt had this to say about the project:

The first screen personas I ever loved were Henson creations, first on ‘Sesame Street,’ and then on ‘Fraggle Rock.' 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.

 

The adaptation has been in development for a decade, but with JGL attached, it's sure to be fast tracked, if only to keep the endless stream of rumors about which character he'll play at bay. We'll keep you updated.
