‘Muppets’ Sequel in the Works, but Not Co-Written by Jason Segel

Jason SegelGood and bad news regarding a sequel to November’s The Muppets: It’s happening, but it won’t include Jason Segel‘s voice — at least not in the screenplay.

Segel is reportedly too busy — between his hit CBS sitcom How I Met Your Mother and upcoming film commitments — to pen the follow-up, but James Bobin and Nicholas Stoller will reprise their behind-the-camera roles as director and screenwriter, respectively.

Segel, who stars in April’s Five-Year Engagement (and co-wrote it with frequent cohort Stoller) and December’s This Is 40, may still reprise his acting role as Gary in the Muppets sequel.
