Shooting is set to start imminently on the new Muppets film, and Ricky Gervais has been chatting about it...
Production is due to start imminently on the follow-up to the massively successful return of The Muppets, with James Bobin back in the director’s chair. And as you more than likely already know, Ricky Gervais has signed up to play the human lead in the new movie.
Gervais’ appointment has been divisive certainly, but we’re big fans of his work particularly in Ghost Town and Cemetery Junction, and remain upbeat about the movie. As is Gervais, as he appeared on This Morning and talked about The Muppets 2.
"I'm in awe of The Muppets”, he said. “I've loved them for like 35 years. I actually can't wait, I'm really excited. I was there yesterday on set and honestly, I'm like an eight year old at Christmas. »
