According to Geek Vibes Nation, the upcoming feature film adaptation ‘Sesame Street’ is aiming to begin filming July 15th in New York City and wrap this September.
Jonathan Krisel will serve as writer and director of the upcoming ‘Sesame Street’ feature film. Krisel is popular for directing several episodes of FXX’s ‘Man Seeking Woman,’ IFC’s ‘Portlandia,’ and FX’s ‘Baskets.’ He was the director of all 6 episodes of the A24 series ‘Moonbase 8,’ which should be coming out soon, despite not having a home yet. However, The Hollywood Reporter states Chris Galletta (‘The Kings of Summer’) wrote the most recent draft of the screenplay.
Krisel said that “It’s going to be big,” with a budget that could be in the $50 million range. Anne Hathaway (‘Ocean’s 8,’ ‘Serenity’) will star.
The plot is being kept under wraps, but it will be a musical drawing inspiration from the show’s theme song, with characters getting lost in New York City and trying to find their way back to Sesame Street.
Further, filming should begin this summer, potentially this May, on-location in New York City.
Warner Bros. will release ‘Sesame Street’ on January 15, 2021. It will release the week after an untitled Blumhouse film, and two weeks before Paramount’s ‘Rugrats.’
