THE MUPPETS (Sequel talk)


Fans of The Muppets should be very pleased to hear that a sequel to last year's film is on the way. Word breaks through Vulture, where it is said that director James Bobin and writer Nicholas Stoller are set to return behind the camera.

Jason Segel & Kermit

Unfortunately, co-writer and leading man Jason Segel's involvement is not so certain as prior commitments are preventing him from being involved in the pre-production stage. Whether or not he or any of the other cast of last year's film return as actors remains to be seen.

Jason Segel was the whole reason the Muppets even got a film, as he pressed studios to get it made, he even co-wrote the story and some songs. Jason Segel understood what makes the Muppets so popular and he even made them relevant to a new generation once again, so a Muppets film without seems wrong, but it will probably be another hit…

But then the star, had the chance to speak with the guys over at Collider, and this is what he had to say:

"My goal was to bring The Muppets back and I did that leaving them in very good hands, my writing partner and James Bobin the director. All I wanted to do was to set the stage for them to do whatever they wanted. I did what I set out to do, and now I wanna pursue more human-related projects. I’m sure I’ll return in some capacity here and there, but that was half a decade of my life. Five years of hard work. I’m ready for a little puppet break.”
