THE MUPPETS To Get A Sequel Minus Jason Segel As Writer

THE MUPPETS To Get A Sequel Minus Jason Segel As Writer

The Muppets director James Bobin and writer Nicholas Stoller will return for a follow up to the hit 2011 movie, although co-writer Jason Segel won't have time to contribute. However, that doesn't mean he won't return in another capacity! Hit the jump for details.



Vulture reports that Disney has come to a deal with The Muppets director James Bobin and the film's co-writer Nicholas Stoller to get to work on a sequel. Unfortunately, How I Met Your Mother's Jason Segel's hectic schedule (as well as working on the CBS sitcom, he's also busy writing other films as well as starring in the likes of Five Year Engagement and This Is Forty) means he simply won't have time to work on the sequel. However, the site reveals that their Disney insiders have confirmed that he may still star in the movie depending on the direction of the Stoller/Bobin script. Are you looking forward to seeing another big screen appearance from The Muppets? Sound off with your thoughts in the usual place.
