I just finished watching three seasons of the UK’s “Office” on Hulu Plus and I’ve rediscovered the comic genius that is Ricky Gervais. Then I received notification that the man himself will be starring in a new film by the folks at Disney!
Gervais will be joined by Ty Burrell (Modern Family) and Tina Fey (30 Rock) in a new comedy, live-action film which also stars Hollywood legends Kermit the Frog, his girl Miss Piggy, the clueless Fozzie Bear, lovable Gonzo, and crazy man Animal!
In this new story, the Muppets go global and this time they’re selling out theatres all over Europe including London, Berline, and Madrid. But these are the Muppets so of course some mayhem ensues when they find themselves tangled up in an international crime caper. This time Kermit is mistaken for the “World’s Number One Criminal.”
Gervais plays Number Two, the crime bosses sidekick. Fey plays a prison guard with attitude, and the bumbling Burrell plays an Interpol agent.
Reserve the date! Watch out for “The Muppets … Again!” to hit the big screen March 21, 2014.
The screen play for The Muppets…Again was written by Nicholas Stoller and John Scotti and directed by James Bobin. The newest installment in the Muppet Empire releases to theaters on March 21, 2014 and should be a fun ride!
