Work continues on the next big Muppet adventure, as Amy Adams is confirmed as joining the cast of human performers.
The return of the popular puppets sees them struggling to save a movie studio from an evil oil tycoon. Their solution? Put on a show, of course!
And now that show has some definite names appearing: Kermit, Fozzie Bear, Amy Adams, Miss Piggy, Rashida Jones and Chris Cooper. They'll be starring alongside genuinely funny co-writer Jason Segel.
With Adams as Segel's girlfriend, Cooper as the villainous businessman and Jones as an ABC TV exec, Segel's entry in the franchise is shaping up to be rather promising. The Muppets are an awesome creation and deserve to be seen on the big screen with a talented team putting their hands up their behinds. Thank goodness Flight of the Conchords' James Bobin is at the helm.
Could this be The Greatest Muppet Movie of All Time? Well, it might be. If that ends up being the title.
