Work Begins On “Muppets” Sequel

Disney is moving forward with a sequel to “The Muppets” after the first film scored $154 million at the worldwide box office reports Variety.

Director James Bobin and co-writer Nicholas Stoller will pen the script for the sequel. Jason Segel may return to star in the sequel, but his various projects are keeping him too busy to pen the sequel.

Kermit and Miss Piggy previously already announced plans for the sequel a few weeks ago during their international publicity tour for the first film.
