Well now, this sounds like fun

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Jason Segel, you know that guy from Freaks & Geeks, Forgetting Sarah Marshall and I Love You, Man, has co-written, will co-produce, and also star in a new Muppet movie. The plot is all hush-hush, but apparently Jason’s [human] character will make it his business to reunite all the Muppets. Hmmm…didn’t they already kind of do that in one of the previous Muppet movies? Oh well, no matter, there are no rules when talking puppets are involved!

James Bobin will direct. He co-created Flight of the Conchords, which means there better be a cameo by Bret and Jemaine–they can do a collaborative number with Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem. Speaking of cameos, according to IMDB, one of the producers of this “untitled Muppet project,” Todd Lieberman, was college pals with Elizabeth Banks (she’s currently on 30 Rock, as Avery, Jack’s CNBC love interest). I hope she shows up at some point…maybe as Piggy’s rival for Kermie’s affections? And of course, Jason Segel needs to bring some of his fellow College of Judd Apatow alums on board…James Franco and Seth Rogen can totally get high with Animal…and Adam Sandler can do some stand-up with Fozzie Bear. Oh my, I love this movie already!
