Deadline is reporting today that Maya Rudolph is joining her Bridesmaids co-star Melissa McCarthy (Ghostbusters) in STXfilms’ The Happytime Murders.

Brian Henson will direct in conjunction with Jim Henson Company’s Henson Alternative banner.

The comedy is set in the underbelly of a Los Angeles where puppets and humans co-exist. Two clashing detectives, one human (McCarthy) and one puppet, are forced to work together to figure out who is brutally murdering the former cast of The Happytime Gang, a beloved classic puppet show.

Jamie Foxx will not be apart of the film because negotiations fell flat.

Henson, McCarthy, Jeffrey Hayes and Falcone will serve as Happytime producers, while Lisa Henson, Dee Robertson and John W. Hyde will executive produce. McCarthy and Falcone will producer under their On the Day Productions banner.

The story is by Todd Berger & Dee Robertson; the screenplay is by Berger, Robertson, Erich & Jon Hoeber and McCarthy. STXfilms VP Production Sheroum Kim and creative executive Kate Vorhoff oversaw the production.
