New Muppet movie to open Christmas 2011
Jason Segel and Nicholas Stoller may not have the official greenlight on their redo of The Muppets but they’ve got a release date. Walt Disney Studios have slated the new, still untitled, Muppet Movie for December 25, 2011. Stoller and Segel, who wrote Forgetting Sarah Marshall together, are just about to turn in a new draft for director James Bobin (Flight of the Conchords). Segel will star with Kermit, Miss Piggy, and the gang. The movie will introduce a new muppet to the clan, but all other plot details for the film have been kept under wraps. At least we know what we’re doing Christmas 2011.
