Melissa McCarthy is headed back to the big screen in a movie with puppets.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Happytime Murders takes place in a world where humans and puppets coexist, with the puppets viewed as second-class citizens.
When the puppet castmembers of 1980s children's TV show The Happytime Gang begin turning up dead, an alcoholic, disgraced LAPD detective-turned-private eye puppet takes the case with his former human partner. Think Avenue Q meets L.A. Confidential.
