After The Muppets earned nearly 150 million dollars worldwide and was the number one DVD/BluRay, Disney and fans have been clamoring for a sequel. It was recently announced that a new film has been green-lit, likely for a 2013 release.
However, the new Muppets film will have to make do without Jason Segel. Not only did Jason Segel star in the 2011 release, he was an executive producer who spearheaded the campaign to get the Muppets back on the big screen and even co-wrote the script.
“All I wanted to do was to set the stage for them to do whatever they wanted. I’m sure I’ll return in some capacity here and there, but that was half a decade of my life. Five years of hard work. I’m ready for a little puppet break.”
While Jason Segel and Amy Adams won’t appear except for a possible quick cameo, Walter will be an integral part of the Muppets.
