Fresh from winning an Oscar for Best Original Song, The Muppets have some stellar news for fans. The successful 2011 film will be getting a sequel. The original creators will be back as James Bobin has committed to directing and screenwriter Nicholas Stoller has signed on to pen the script.
The film is in its earliest of pre-production stages and at this time, Movie Fanatic cannot report on what level of participation Jason Segel will have in the sequel. Segel co-wrote and starred in the original. His absence and enthusiasm for all things Muppets would be missed.
For fans who cannot get enough of their Jim Henson creations, look for The Muppets when it lands March 20 on Blu-Ray and DVD.
