R-rated puppet mystery The Happytime Murders hits in 2013

Best known for The Muppet Show, The Dark Crystal and a variety of other kid-orientated puppet entertainment, the Jim Henson Company is looking to make puppets cool again . . . for adults.

Directed by Brian Henson, The Happytime Murders is a thriller set in a world where adults and puppets co-exist. When the cast of the 80s-children's show The Happytime Gang starts turning up dead, it's up to a disgraced -- and alcoholic -- LAPD detective-turned-puppet-private-eye to solve the crime.

According to Bloody Disgusting, the film will be hard R, with sex, violence and murder. Sounds like my kind of puppet movie! Hottie Katherine Heigle (above), who is no stranger to killer puppets after starring in The Bride of Chucky, is among the human cast.

No release date has been set, but this sounds like one to keep an eye on. Below is some concept art from the film.
