Another Muppet movie on the way

Vulture.com reports this morning that James Bobin (director of “The Muppets”) will team with Nicholas Stoller to write a sequel to “The Muppets,” — without the assistance of Jason Segel, who co-wrote the 2011 original with Stoller. Segel, who has a busy TV career and two feature films coming out this year (“The Five Year Engagement” and “This Is Forty”), reportedly won’t have time to work on the new script, but “a Disney insider” said he may turn up in the sequel as an actor. Let’s hope so; Walter wouldn’t be the same without him.
And speaking of “The Muppets,” here is this year’s Academy Award-winning original song, “Man or Muppet,” written by Bret McKenzie. Just because. (Love the fleeting moment of Walter costumed as Kermit.)
