Muppets Sequel Filming In London In January, Bret McKenzie Writing New Songs

Filming on the next, somewhat Eurocentric Muppet movie is due to start filming at Pinewood in January, and it seems like there’s going to be location work around London between then and April. Word of this first started creeping along the muppet-fan grapevine last Friday, but before I could confirm it was more than just sourceless chatter, Collider bumped into producer Todd Lieberman and got him on the record.

Also now confirmed is the return of Flight of the ConchordsBret McKenzie who is currently writing new songs for the film. He didn’t write every tune in the last picture, but he did a sterling job on the ones he did write and deservedly won an Oscar* for Man or Muppet.

Other Muppet rumours, as yet unconfirmed, have a UK comedy star in the human lead role and new Muppet characters in supporting parts. We’ll see about this soon, I guess.

The Muppet Show was filmed in London. It’s nice to see them coming back.

*Schmoscar. Still, I’m glad he won and not somebody else.
