Muppets 2 Update

April 16, 2012

On the stump recently doing promotion for his April 27th romantic dramedy Five-Year Engagement
 and Nicholas Stoller was asked by Collider to update the progress of the Muppets Sequel.

Stoller says “They want to do it. They want it as soon as possible, which is good. I’m not sure exactly when they want to release it. I think it was something like next summer. I don’t think that’s realistic in terms of getting it all together in time. But to want to do it so quickly is great. It certainly makes us want to write it quickly. I’m writing with James Bobin. We’ve outlined it over the past couple weeks and we literally started writing it yesterday. The first 13 pages are written. It is started. It is on.”  

The Muppets human star Jason Segel, has passed on being directly involved with the sequel but a cameo role is in the offing.

Stoller says “There’s a cameo possibility in it, definitely. Gary and Mary’s story is concluded. There’s not much to say after that for their story, but we follow them up into a…I will say, it is a caper. It is a comedy caper. It’s similar to the first one. It had dramatic connections to the first Muppet Movie, but it was a whole new thing, hopefully. This is the same thing. We love The Great Muppet Caper. So this has some elements of that, but it’s different because it’s in the tone of what [we] like to do .”
