Jim Henson biopic slated for summer

Aughra from The Dark CrystalAccording to MarketWire, the Empire Film Group has purchased production and distribution rights to Henson, an original screenplay by Robert D. Slane about “the life and achievements of Muppets creator, Jim Henson.” That’s all well and good, but will they show anything about The Dark Crystal? Aughra must know!

(Incidentally, the Henson Company and Genndy Tartakovsky’s Dark Crystal sequel, The Power of the Dark Crystal, is still languishing in pre-production, despite a planned 2009 release.)
