At first I thought it was just a bizarre story. The not-main-character from ‘Freaks and Geeks’ was going to revive the Muppets franchise for no other reason than he was a super-fan and Disney said “sure.”
But today the story for Jason Segel’s Muppet movie hit the Internet and I must admit, it sounds like a classic Muppet movie to me. Apparently the Muppets band together to save an old theater from being torn down by a character who wants it leveled for the oil beneath it. That sounds like a good Muppets movie right there.
Color me curious. I would be stoked if there was a great Muppet movie again and, if he can nail the tone, it sounds like Segel could be the one to deliver that.
