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.
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.
In the meantime, Muppet-lovers can look forward to the March 20th release of the DVD and Blu-ray of the recent film, now officially an Academy Award winner thanks to songwriter Bret McKenzie and his “Man or Muppet?”.
