Marshall Duo Handle Next Muppets

“Forgetting Sarah Marshall” actor/screenwriter Jason Segel and helmer Nick Stoller are teaming again to create the next Muppet movie for Disney Pictures reports Variety.

In “Sarah Marshall” Segel’s character writes a “Dracula” musical performed by puppets.

Those cloth creatures were custom-made by the Henson puppeteers, and the experience emboldened Segel to pitch his concept for a Muppets movie when he was invited in for a general meeting with executive Kristin Burr.

Segel and Stoller will write the script and Stoller will direct.
