Kevin Clash movie dropped following sex scandal

By
Warner Bros has pulled the plug on Kevin Clash's proposed movie project following reports linking the Sesame Street star with a sex scandal.

The voice actor and puppeteer was forced to resign from the PBS show last month after being accused of having sexual relations with underage boys.

Clash was developing a feature inspired by the Calvin and Hobbes comic strip, about a child whose imagination sees a stuffed toy take on a life of its own, but Warner has now cut all ties with the film, Vulture reports.

Dan Lin and Roy Lee were on board to produce the project, but it is unknown whether they will remain involved. Clash is also yet to confirm whether he plans on pitching the idea to other studios.

Clash denies the charges against him and expressed sadness upon his Sesame Street departure. His accuser ultimately dropped the claim, but similar reports from other alleged victims have since surfaced.

He is best known for serving the voice and puppeteer of Elmo from 1985 onwards.
