Inglourious Basterd Til Schweiger Is In The Muppets… Again

The Muppets… Again has been filming on the River Medway in Kent today. I was hoping some good set snaps or video would surface, but alas, there’s been nothing so far.

An actress called Fleur Poad was on set today, and posted a few teasing details to Twitter.

Til Schweiger is perhaps best known in these quarters as Hugo Stiglitz, Inglourious Basterd. Hopefully, nobody reading this has any idea that he also played Heinz Hummer, “The Gigolo With The Most Below.” For your own sakes.

I’m guessing from the density of German talent* that Kent was standing in for Deutschland today.

Schewiger actually mentioned his role in the film to Rundschau recently, saying that he’s taking a year off, except for special cases. And a scene with Kermit, of course, is a very special case.

Christoph Waltz also has a scene in the film – a dance scene, apparently, and he’ll end up “covered in dust.” That’s two alumni of Basterds… so far.

The Muppets… Again will be released in the US in March 2014. I’m hoping that the UK release will be around the same time. Or earlier.

*Well, two Germans. Or one German and a half German.
