This is the kind of position we find ourselves in with this film right now. Rumour tennis.
Rose Byrne continues to shine as a comedic actress, and that airbag gag just gets me every single time.
Including a bonus reminder of what it was like when a different web of friends and colleagues had the movie comedy business all up in wraps.
I think Kermit tried to hint at an element of this plotline during an interview I did with him last year.
Warner Brothers dust off their feature length animation department.
Disney apparently want a sequel to The Muppets ready for next summer. Yeah – they can want that. I want one for when I get back from the toilet in a couple of minutes, but that isn’t necessarily going to make it happen.* Co-writer Nicholas Stoller seems sceptical about this tight turnaround too. He’s currently […]
Yes, I’m absolutely over the moon that Disney have set James Bobin and Nicholas Stoller to writing a new Muppet movie. Hannah reported the news a couple of days ago and the first place I saw it was here on Bleeding Cool, and I reacted accordingly. But there was a little twist. At that time, […]
Here’s some good news and some bad news, so let’s start with the good news. Director James Bobin and co-writer Nicholas Stoller of The Muppets have signed a deal to pen a sequel, unsurprising perhaps considering that the movie has already grossed over $150 million worldwide and received widespread critical acclaim.

Brendon went to see The Muppets earlier in the week, and from what I hear he rather enjoyed it*, so perhaps that’s why The Five-Year Engagement, also both written by and starring Jason Segel, looks from this trailer to be an actual decent romcom.

Tonight, The Hollywood Reporter name Ricky Gervais and Emily Blunt; previously, they named Alan Arkin, Jack Black, Billy Crystal, Zach Galifianakis and Jean-Claude Van Damme as having roles; for casting stories from before that point, I refer you to some of my […]
As I said yesterday, there’s LA filming for The Muppets taking place this weekend on La Brea, at and near the Henson studios. If I lived in California, I’d have made the trip myself, but I don’t, I’m in England, and so I’m depending on the vicarious thrills of seeing on-set snaps taken by other […]
With production on James Bobin’s The Muppets finally, excitingly underway, more details are coming to light about some of the human supporting players scheduled to appear. Here’s a list of recently named joiners, with details on their characters where possible. There are light spoilers inherent in this list. Eric Stonestreet, John Krasinski and Ed Helms – […]
Here’s an odd idea from Nicholas Stoller, director of Forgetting Sarah Marshall and Get Him to the Greek, and screenwriter on the upcoming Muppets and Stretch Armstrong movies. He was explaining something of the tone he was working on for the Stretch screenplay in an interview with Movieweb: Stretch lives in a very grounded, real world. […]
