Kermit, Miss Piggy and the whole MUPPET gang will be returning for director James Bobin's upcoming sequel to be called THE MUPPET...AGAIN! Filming is currently underway in London for its March 21, 2014 release date.
"It's great to be back working with the Muppets," said Bobin, "some of them even remember my name occasionally now. As for the movie, it's a tip of the hat to the old-school crime capers of the '60s, but featuring a frog, a pig, a bear and a dog-no panthers, even pink ones-along with the usual Muppet-y mix of mayhem, music and laughs."
Disney's "The Muppets ...Again!" takes the entire Muppets gang on a global tour, selling out grand theaters in some of Europe's most exciting destinations, including Berlin, Madrid and London. But mayhem follows the Muppets overseas, as they find themselves unwittingly entangled in an international crime caper headed by Constantine-the World's Number One Criminal and a dead ringer for Kermit-and his dastardly sidekick Dominic, aka Number Two, portrayed by Ricky Gervais, creator of "Derek" and the Golden Globe- and Emmy-winning series "The Office" and "Extras." The film stars Golden Globe-, Emmy- and SAG Award-winning actress and writer Tina Fey ("30 Rock," "Mean Girls," "Date Night") as Nadya, a feisty prison guard, and Emmy Award winner Ty Burrell (TV's "Modern Family") as Interpol agent Jean Pierre Napoleon.
Said Kermit the Frog, "This movie takes us places we've never been before. And trust me-this frog has never seen so much international flavor. I think audiences will eat it up-the entertainment, that is."
Featuring a slew of surprising celebrity cameos, Disney's "The Muppets ... Again!" will shoot on location in London and in Hollywood, as well as in the famed Pinewood Studios in Iver Heath, Buckinghamshire, just outside of London.
