Release Date Set for THE HAPPYTIME MURDERS

Earlier this year, we brought word that Brian Henson’s R-rated puppet thriller The Happytime Murders was in development. And now comes a confirmed release date for what promises to be one of the most unique movies of the year.

All is still a little hush-hush when it comes to the cast of the picture, but we do know that The Happytime Murders has now been booked in for an August 17th release - meaning the film will hit the big screen in just over two months.

Previously, we’d heard that Melissa McCarthy will headline and also produce, and there were some initial stories that Jamie Foxx was in talks to co-star with the Ghostbusters actress. Other than McCarthy, though, cast details have yet to be revealed.

Plot-wise, the movie takes place in a world where humans and puppets coexist, although the puppets are looked at by many as second-class citizens. When the cast of 1980s kids show “The Happytime Gang” wind up dead, a grizzled and disgraced LAPD detective puppet ends up teaming with his human former partner to try and get to the bottom of this mystery.
