The gang is all back together in the first 'Muppets 2' trailer, featuring Kermit, Miss Piggy, Ricky Gervais and many more!
The Muppets 2
On top of the news about two untitled Marvel movies, Disney has updated their calendar, and changed the title of 'The Muppets' sequel, which is now going by the name 'The Muppets Most Wanted.'
Though it won't be released until March 21, 2014, filming for 'The Muppets... Again!' is underway, and Ricky Gervais is currently on set. We can tell because he's just released a video showing his interactions with one of his cast members, Pepe the King Prawn.
Rejoice, nerds! Tina Fey is the latest name to join the cast of the upcoming 'Muppets' sequel. In the words of the comedy icon herself: We can have it all!
'The Muppets 2' originally had Oscar-winning actor Christoph Waltz cast as the film's new villain, a bumbling Interpol agent. But Waltz was forced to drop out due to scheduling concerns and was replaced by 'Modern Family' star Ty Burrell (interesting choice for a replacement...). But now it appears that Waltz may star in 'The Muppets 2' after all, in a different role.
'The Muppets' sequel is moving along at full-speed, and following the announcement last week that 'Modern Family's Ty Burrell joined the cast, now comes word that Ricky Gervais is in talks to play one of the human leads as well.
'The Muppets 2,' the sequel to the 2011 film, has just cast 'Modern Family' star Ty Burrell in the role that once almost belonged to Christoph Waltz.
Last we heard, 'The Muppets 2' was bringing Oscar-winning Christoph Waltz on to join the sequel (which was being described as akin to 'The Great Muppet Caper') but now we have some more details on 'The Muppets 2' which looks to be happening sooner rather than later.
