In the 80′s we had Follow That Bird. Now it appears the crew from Sesame Street will be coming to the silver screen again, two decades later.
Twentieth Century Fox has given the green light to a movie based on the long running PBS series Sesame Street.
The studio has picked up the movie rights to the long-running and iconic children’s television show and has tapped longtime Street writer Joey Mazzarino to pen the script. Producers are Shawn Levy and his 21 Laps banner, Michael Aguilar, Mark Gordon and Film 360′s Guymon Casady.
Sesame Workshop, the company behind the show (and formerly known as Children’s Television Workshop), likely will be involved in a producer capacity as well.
Fox had no comment on the news.
