I’m more than happy to see that one of my favorite movies from 2011 THE MUPPETS will be getting a sequel. I’m a little less excited to see that collaborator and star Jason Segal will not be on board to help write the script. The news comes not because Segal doesn’t want to be involved but because he has a pretty full plate in front of him with a couple different films he appears in, others he’s writing and of course his schedule with the hit TV show How I Met Your Mother which he costars in.
The sequel to THE MUPPETS will feature the return of Nicholas Stoller to write the script and will collaborate with the first film’s director James Bobin. It’s not yet known if Segal will be able to return to star alongside the beloved Muppets but it is not outside the realm of possibility.
What is your reaction to the news that Jason Segal is not returning to help pen a sequel for THE MUPPETS?
