Forgetting Sarah Marshall's Jason Segal is officially developing a new Muppet movie. If you've seen Forgetting Sarah Marshall, you know that the climactic puppet show is the best thing about the movie.
In the film Segel will star as Gary, a somewhat naive and Muppet obsessed guy who leaves Smalltown, USA to head to Los Angeles and winds up helping the Muppets put on a show big enough to save their theaters which is at risk of being torn down by a ruthless oil man. James Bobin (FLIGHT OF THE CONCHORDS) is directing the film, which still will need to cast its human female lead.
I hope Segal manages to put together a Muppet movie that's entertaining for both adults and kids. We haven't had a good Muppet movie in a very long time.
