Tina Fey In Talks For Lead Female Role In THE MUPPETS Sequel

Golden Globes co-host Tina Fey (30 Rock) is reportedly in "late-stage negotiations" to join the cast of The Muppets sequel in the lead female role alongside British comedian Ricky Gervais. Hit the jump for details on who she will reportedly play in the movie!


The Hollywood Reporter reveals that Tina Fey is closing in on the lead female role in Walt Disney Studios' sequel to 2011's The Muppets. She joins Ricky Gervais and Ty Burrell in a part which is described by the site as being "a Russian gulag prison guard" in the Europe set follow-up. Story details are still under wraps, but we do know that James Bobin (who directed the 2011 Muppets film) is back both as helmer and co-writer. This would mark the second time that Gervais and Fey have worked together after they starred in The Invention of Lying. Stay tuned for further updates!
