Sesame Street Presents: Follow That Bird

Follow Those Puppets: We’ve seen multiple movies featuring The Muppets, and a couple of flicks starring Big Bird (above) and Elmo, but what about all the other beloved characters from Sesame Street? Well, a film version of the long-running children’s TV series is finally on its way, with 20th Century Fox acquiring rights and hiring show veteran Joey Mazzarino to craft a script. Shawn Levy (Real Steel, Night at the Museum) is on board as one of the producers. [The Hollywood Reporter]

Political Jesus: Director Paul Verhoeven (Total Recall, Basic Instinct) co-wrote the book Jesus of Nazareth, in which Jesus is portrayed as “the leader of a political movement,” among other non-traditional views (no miracles, not the Son of God, and so forth). It was based on decades of research for a movie that Verhoeven hoped to make. Now the project has finally found funding, and a screenwriter had been hired: Academy Award-winning Roger Avary (Pulp Fiction, The Rules of Attraction). [Deadline]

Action of the Heart: The U.S. moviegoing public may have sunk Battleship (overseas, it’s done much better), but director Peter Berg is full steam ahead. He’s ready to once again direct a big-screen version of a non-fiction book by Buzz Bissinger; the author of Friday Night Lights. The new project, Father’s Day, recounts a road trip that Bissinger took with his 24-year-old son, “a savant, challenged by serious intellectual deficits.” [Variety]

Start Stripping: Next week a rising star will display his physical assets for all to see, but you can get a peek at the goods, right here and right now, in this clip from Steven Soderbergh's Magic Mike starring Channing Tatum. [Facebook via Coming Soon]
