The Muppets return for another wild and wacky adventure in Europe!
The Muppets will return with another adventure, this time a European comedy caper. British stand-up comedian Ricky Gervais is set to star.
After co-writing and starring in 2011's The Muppets, Jason Segel will not be returning for the next addition to the much-loved franchise, created by original puppet-master Jim Henson. Nicholas Stoller and James Bobin, Segal's co-writers from the previous film, will write the new script, with Bobin also back in the director's chair. Bret McKenzie of Flight of the Concords is also returning to write more new music, after winning a Best Original Song Oscar for his work on the previous film.
Academy Award winner Christoph Waltz (Inglorious Basterds, Django Unchained) was rumored to play a villainous Interpol inspector but instead the role went to Ty Burrell. If this film is anything like its predecessor, we expect plenty of other big names to be attached to the project soon.
