'Portlandia' Co-Creator Jonathan Krisel to Direct 'Sesame Street' Movie
Are Bert and Ernie gay or not? That's a question no one seems to agree on but whatever the case, we're certainly getting more Sesame Street. The iconic children's show is coming to the big screen, with a very hip director in tow.

Jonathan Krisel, best known as the co-creator of Portlandia, has been tapped to direct a live-action Sesame Street movie for Warner Bros.

According to Variety, the film will be a musical. It's being produced by Shawn Levy and Michael Aguilar. The most recent version of the film was written by Chris Galletta.

For now, that's all we really know — but we can't wait to see the Portlandia director put a Bert on it.
