The Empire Film Group has acquired the rights to a script called HENSON, by Robert D. Slane, about acclaimed entertainer Jim Henson, homeboy behind The Muppets and Sesame Street. He also made THE DARK CRYSTAL, which thoroughly, thoroughly messed me up for a while when I was a kid. "This is a major project about an entertainer of legendary stature and worldwide acclaim," said Dean Hamilton-Bornstein, CEO of Empire Film Group. "The script is superb and should provide a terrific roadmap for a completed film that will satisfy both mainstream audiences and critics. We're very excited about this acquisition and the commercial caliber of this project."
